    I like the look and dimensions of the tank a lot! The long profile gives you lots of surface area for O2 exchange and the shallow depth maximizes the strength of your lights. The lights look good too. I am dubious about the media baskets, I think that they would tend to raise nitrates.

    Only disasters happen fast!

    I think your right about the baskets. I would remove the media and load them up with LR rubble. Or try to turn the back chambers into a small refugium.
