thats my buddy Milo he is a great cat.... he thinks hes a dog LOL

yeah the tank was a mess and it smelled awful but a little cleaning and it looks great now... just waiting until the week end for my next step in the process (well the better half thinks i am waiting LOL)

this is an intentionally slow build and it most likely will not see water for another month or two as i get things moving.. here is the full list of items to be done and sorta the order (some will be done at the same time)
new seals

plumbing

stand (modification or rebuild i have not decided yet)

build the wet/dry (bio-tower and spare tank) design ATM calls for a small refugium for plants as the stock i am considering typically will tear them up if they were in the DT

background (see other thread it will be made from plastic pavers)

substrate (crushed coral and aragonite mix to address water issues and for the great look)

then finally water and start the cycle.. this will give me 4-6 weeks to work out various decor and start locating the stock i would like...

now i know a lot of this will need tuning once assembled but i am ok with that....

no that was in the laundry room on the other side of the wall... its not conductive to the lay out of this set up as its predrilled and lower than the hole in the wall ... i am going to modify the stand and raise it a bit in order to accommodate the sump under the tank and seal up the hole in the wall.... takes like 20 minutes to make the hole and only 10 to fix it ;)
