i'm out several hundred dollars in supplies, as well as over 100 hours of work and gas and headache. possibly 3 ruined filters too. all because home depot was out of GEI black silicone. hopefully i can get the tank torn down w/out breaking it, and clean it up properly. going to take forever...but, better me than u!!!
i honestly feel like quiting right now, but it's not my style.lost a few quarantine fish last night to top it off. [not in this tank
the pig shall be back, bigger and better!
i will rise up my friends!!! [just not tonight...uuggghhhh]:
Oh I'm really sorry to hear that Pork. No wonder you're gutted, especially after all the effort you put into it. However... I look forward to the new and improved version this time using the GEI black silicone. You know it'll be worth it in the end! :)
