That is such a truly amazing amount of work you have done so far. Once it's set up how will you ever to be able to consider going down to Georgia to live?
If it was me I'd never leave the house. I'd be kicking back in that newly remodeled room, admiring my new reef while downing an entire Jersey pie!!

I can hardly wait to see this project completed; it's going to be a great looking reef

If you don't stand up for something you'll fall for anything...

You can not begin to imagine the difficult decision it was to move from my house with a 48 aquarium fish room....

Or the work involved. I actually gave away over 20 aquarium setups to kids in the neighborhood. They were just knocking on my front door once the rumor spread!

For the record, OF2F, as long as you have that empty basement, you may as well build one of those monster size concrete tanks.

for the record my father is re-doing the basement in his spare time. its been a very slow on going process but i guess it will get done eventually. hes quite the handy man, he replaced the inground pool liner when he first got the house many years ago and a year or two ago replaced the entire thing. by that i mean, the walls were re-done, sand was mounded up, concrete poured ...among all sorts of projects around the house. talk about madness.

I don't mean to nit pick or anything but I don't know if you liquid nailed the tops of those beams, in between the subfloor. You will end up happier if you do, and to the other floor trusses, that way nothing will squeak when you walk across your floor. Trust me, I have hardwood all through the house and the subfloor was not glued to the floor beams, nor did they put tar paper in between the hardwood and subfloor, and it squeaks terribly. I may not know much about setting up reef aquariums, but when it comes to carpentry I can help with most anything and would be happy to give any advice after all everyone has taught me.

thats a good thought however the beams are already in. im not overly concerned about it either because the house itself is old so squeeks are bound to be heard.
