    edit:Thanks for all the input guys, I'm going to go with Chip.



    Finish building my new fish tank out of a G4 Cube case I acquired off eBay!

    Got a new Betta fish, but he needs a name. He wouldn't pose for the photo, but he's bright blue.

    I guess with a fish in a cube, you aren't going to get as nice a tar. ;)

    I'm also a fan of Indiana Jones, Back to the Future, Star Wars, Kevin Smith films, Lord of the Rings, Issac Asimov books and I think I'd like to name him something not Mac/computer related or at least something that has meaning outside of the tech world.

    Oh, I know!

    Byte

    :D

    That bowl is stunning. Not necessarily intended as a fish name...

    Thanks to Joe. His website was instrumental in developing my idea.

    The biggest difference between our designs is that I am lighting my from below, and wrapping the base to hid the bulb. I like the mood a lot better, though I may also put in a low power bulb above as well, to use when I feed him, draw his attention to the surface.
