Some updated pics of my tank since the "Chiller Incident" that "Boiled" all of my lifestock. Couple of months later and all is going well, except for the Aptaisia and some Algae, but working on that....LoL:

Sean, What an amazing project you had on your hands there. Kudos to you for pulling it off. Excellent Job! Question is, When are you planning to swing on by and install mine?

Take pride in what you do, for it is a reflection of who you are.

Thank you, but I doubt I'll ever take on a project like this again. Too much stress and nightmares and too little money....LoL.

I am however busy planning a "Beach setup" that I would like to incorporate into/onto the side of the tank. Busy on the planning as it need to be aesthetical as well as the fact that I am still working on the problem as to how to keep the sand from sliding into the tank and still have small waves, but I have an Engineer friend looking into it. Hopefully soon....

No worries, I have upgrade plans of myown, but not for another year or so.

Best of luck on the beach setup. I'm planning a Beach Shadowbox type Coffee Table as my next project. The table top will be a 4' long x 1.5' wide, shallow (about 4"-5") box covered with tabletop glass. Beach sand and shells will be landscaped into the box and prayed with a matte model landscaping adhesive. A DIY thread on the build will inevitably follow. :)

Sean, Did you ever find a positive ID on that little hitchhiker fish/eel?

Thank you guys for the comments. SK Auston, good luck with your setup. Yes, I did find the Id, it was some type of fish that apparently swims up the rectum of a certain fish and cleans it. Forgot the name. Will have to check up as to where the post is.....

Which leather would you like to have a closep pic on Blue Blue??? The Colt Or the huge leather towards the right of the tank???
