View Full Version : Few Questions about new set up

02/02/2007, 11:12 AM
I am about to set up a new 125G FOWLR but I am thinking of going bare bottom, well kind of....I have seen people use that white "board" stuff and really like it. What is that stuff? Where do you get it? Is it expensive?

Another question is, I am building the stand and canopy (which I have done before) and usually I use a retrofit kit for lighting but this time because its a FOWLR and lighting is not important, I thought I could use much cheaper fluorescents from a place like Home Depot. Is this possible? If so, what would you recommend? But, will this even look good over a tank or will the lighting be terrible?

It's called Starboard. It's the same stuff they use for cutting boards.
