no problem doc, will post up soon just waiting on the keep equipment like tank, haha... just ordered litermeter 3 and man this is awesome piece of hardware, i wanted to put 300gal in the same place but i figure once i did that i will later upgrade and that was the last thing i wanted to do was to tear down a mature tank. who says this hobby was cheap, and i should have stuck with deep sea fishing lol

So we have started the rock for the front... Still not fully mortared but getting close.


Watertest was this weekend... SUCCESSFUL not a drop out of place so next is to build the overflows and then start to cover the back in foam, Epoxy and sand with crushed coral


Well Everyone has some kind of a Mermaid pic... My gorgeous wife was so sick with the flu LOL squirting things everywhere I figured that you guys would accept my 6ft. 20yo. son as a replacement LOL It was about 40 degrees in the Basement The water was ummmm COLD

Hey Doc....the rockwork looks awesome and it's going to look amazing once the tank and all your awesome corals are glowing away in there.

That's hilarious about your son....looks like something my dad would put me up to

You might find this entertaining...I thought our builds were headed toward identical until your rockwork went over the entire wall! Looks good.

http://www.canreef.com/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=28436

My $.02...I've had a lot of trouble getting the threaded fittings on the OM 4 ways to seal nicely. I have lots of threaded joints. The only one's I'm having trouble with are the OM 4 ways.

I'm concerned that three darts isn't enough flow...it looks like I'll find out before you!
