small set back however the company fixed this by sending a replacement,



and another set of packages arrived



what is it, what is it!







awesome quality rock



step one, smash rock into a million pieces,



step two, construct eggcrate



zip tie



zip tie



pond foam!



sing it with me, zip tie, zip tie, pond foam! zip tie, zip tie, pond foam!



everyone loves playdoh



this only works when you use purple



and thats a glass hole



back wall dirty



top shot of the newly installed overflow



cut out to accept the new overflow





i originally was going to use these clips on my foam wall but they struggled to support the weight



so i shaved the back side with a razor and choose to just silicon it into place



moving along to plumbing



the bottom piece of pipe displays what i rigged up as my 1 1/2'' Y fitting since hardware stores do not carry them and i want my drain to split to either side of my sump



this is just a shot i took with the rock wall on the bottom of the glass, maybe this will spark some interest of you bare bottom sandless reefers and get your ideas flowing



cutting no corners, i filled my tank with some fiji water



i did get a chance to add alittle sand, however no pictures of that yet. i guess im just waiting for a RO/DI unit to be able to fill'r up

I'm really enjoying this thread.

It's a lot of work but must be really satisfying to do it all yourself (with a little help from the cat)

ive added plenty of wet via bottle of fiji, however i kept the cap on to not let any of the goodness evaporate.

maybe its time to sell off some un-used fish stuff for alittle more funds.
