yea holiday season is not good for DIY projects, its been like forever and i havent gotten much farther than when i left off at the end of the last project except for some sanding and planning. Good chance i wont finish before this deadline either, having to visit relatives, shop for presents and work is killer this month.

i hear ya .. i was just hopeful that even a few of the simple DIY made it nothing complex you know like DIY breeder net for $3 or how to mod your powerhead for free and get 5x the flow

Can some one enter two (2) projects or is it just one (1) per contest?

Sin - but you have to admit your project has been a complex learning experience... and a good project non-the less for it.. i can not speak for other members but i have certainly learned a great deal from your project.. and thank you for that by the way..

I would be almost done if not for the 1mm protrusion that i cant figure out how to sand down. Its literally exactly 1mm thicker on one side so the second tank wont sit flush against the main tank. but when i sand i either sand it down too much or both sides get sanded evenly or the middle sticks out... and then it wont fit flush anyway...

I'm glad my diy project is helpful, thats why i love writing and reading other people's worklogs. I have learned so much from everyone else's ideas and projects. I now have like 3 or 4 custom tank designs in my head that i want to make but this one... is still incomplete and i have resolved myself to finishing this before making more tanks. I have a love/hate relationship with my DIY projects. but
