now to skin it, sand it, paint it, paint the back of the tank, do the plumbing, build the canopy, attach lights, wire the new balast with the 2 extra bulbs and a few other odds and ends. maybe im not as far as i thought.

It's looking great. The weekend is almost upon us and I hope you make alot of progress. It's great fun checking out your pictures as you go along; glad you are posting them!

BTW, love the baseboard. The white looks awesome up against the green walls & the wood flooring. You're never going to want to leave your room.

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

thanks kym! theres a drip of green on the moulding over in the corner
but since theres going to be a tank/cabinet here it will be hidden.

the sad part is, i already dont really leave my room. my tanks in there, my bed as i sleep basically the entire day for work at night, as mentioned earlier i dont shower, heck i even assembled the peices of wood for this in my room. i just cannot wait to get this thing running...

at the very least i hope to paint the back of the tank, skin the stand, and hopefully sand/paint it this weekend.


at the very most i hope to have this thing done completely this weekend.

the sump is already built. its skimmer section (the skimmer is outside the tank but draws water from here) then return pump, then refugium. i have this setup on my bowfront at the moment but once things are setup on this guy i will drain it and bring it over.

wow! you're getting there :)
this is going to be awsome,i'm enjoying watching the stages.

when you set up a new tank,hide an extra
sponge or two behind some decor,that way you have
something seeded for you next filter.
