I've ordered everything I can think of:

Pump
Heater
Acrylic for building filter
Pipe and fittings for both plumbing and CO2 reactor
Airstone for reactor
Aluminum channel for light
LEDs and driver
Already have sand
Filter floss
Prefilter foam
Thermometer for tank

Haven't settled on a bio media yet, cheap suggestions?

Build starts when I get home in 11 days!

Looks like you enjoy making items for your tanks, me too!

Your planning looks great and I love your ideas, why didn't you make the the tank yourself? No doubt you could do it, its not that hard and an acrylic tank this size is perfect for DIY...

When we gonna get some images?

You know, I considered it. I've worked with Acrylic before, know how to bond it etc. But I just didn't want to put the time into that part of the project. I also don't have the proper tools for machining and working with 1/4" acrylic. The company I ended up hiring to build the tank is right by my home and their level of finish seemed really nice so I figured I'd give them a try.

I'll have pictures very early in september, I'm currently finishing up my summer internship and will move back home to start the tank build when thats done.

Ordered thermal epoxy because I though I was out.

Can anyone recommend a good place to order Corydorus Habrosus or a good lfs near san luis obispo?

i know Izzy has purchased some fish from The Wet Spot. They're located in Oregon. Not sure if they have c. habrosus, but it'd be worth a look!
