    As some of you may be aware I was 2 months in with my Rena 200 Planted tank all was going well and I moved, tank could not come with me as it would not fit – such is life, however I learn a lot.

    I will have a new space shortly (once the floor is done) so I’m off again.

    I have a space that’s got a width of 130 cm, Before I dive in im going to research tanks and cabinets a little. So advice appreciated

    What am I looking for - wel leventually a fairly heavily planted well lit tank

    Cabinet and Tank, cabinet will have to store external filter, in line heater and CO2 kit.

    Whilst I did like the Rena 200 the lid left a little to be desired, trimming plants was an exercise, three lids off lights out etc. So im looking for an all inclusive lid \ hood ideally that has T5 lighting ?

    A dream would be to have drilled holes for inlet \ outlet but I guess they may not exist? (and there may be disadvantages that’s im unaware of ?

    Anyway thoughts appreciated, im not to concerned about cost (within reason )

    Now if there are high tech tanks with USB ports etc just point me in the right direction :)
