Just upload to YouTube and post a link here, that's the easiest way.

So don’t judge! My first YouTube video ever! Still have a long way to go on the hillstream build but as you can see it’s getting there. Laid a couple of led shop lights across the top to get my algae started.

Awesome work.
Thanks! There is still a lot to do but I’m pretty excited with how it is turning out.
One of the next steps is I need to get the actual lights put together. I ordered more bulkheads as well so I can double down on drains....

Drains are important. Would a stand pipe style drain that has inlets at surface and bottom not negate the need for a second drain? Or are you adding drains elsewhere?

How are you mounting the lights?

Hanging the lights from the ceiling I think.

I like hanging lights. Just feels a lot cleaner to me.
