Red face Set up going well pix frustration

ok so those who have been keeping up i am working on a 2 tank set up in my dinning room wall.. i know i promised pix and pix of the new fish in the 29 gallon ...however, between the 9billion life emergancies that wont ease up and the fact that my lovely 4 year old wiped out the camera i have to get more pix and i can not do the step by step i was hoping for...
at this moment though i have the unneeded shelves cut out and gone
i put in the new brace to ensure proper support and have primed with KILLZ anti mold primer
next step is to drill the holes for electrical and get my guy to run the breaker for the tanks so that they are on their own circuit..
although i am really leaning towards just running a cord through the wall to a plug in the basement and having the tanks on independent surge protectors (no one will see it and i can hide the cord in the basement ceiling)
have the tank deco all planned and here filters are all set and i think i have decided on the inhabitants based on current population needs and what will work best to keep every one healthy and happy..

Oh oh toddler busting camera's...that doesn't sound good at all.

Set up sounds nice so far! Are you still going for the all tanks on 1 sump set up now or has that changed meanwhile?

When you're wiring around keep in mind to add a lil CPU fan now (or at least wire it up to add one later if needed in the summer time).

no not busted just deleted all of it LOL.... if she broke it i wold cry i got that for my hunny and it was very VERY expensive!!!
we changed the design abit with the air flow in mind instead of closing it off as much as i wanted i left it very much open for the flow to eliminate one more electric appliance lOL... this came after we decided to do just the two tanks and do away with the sump...
