You can still put your light up there and everything if you have one. And the pellets are perfect size to fit in the holes.

that stuff can be quite awkward , as far as stability,for a 50 gallon, i resorted to using plexiglass and drilling holes in it

i got 18" x 24" plexi at home depot for $9
just be very careful cutting it. if im not mistaken, lowes will cut it for you if u buy it there

Yeah I want it permanent, so I'll live with it. Thanks for the suggestion. Its still something for me to look into. I just don't have alot of money.
