It doesn't look like the slits for our overflow will handle too much flow.

Sweet looking tank though.

Interesting idea with the extra depth.

so im deciding that this tank is becomeing a pain to because i dont have money for the equiptment need so i think that i cant get anything done untill Xmas. i am only a 14 year old that now owes my mom $150 on a celly bill and i barely have $10 to my name! lol. i am very tired of lookinq at a empty tank. i am probably not going to have any process with this tank untill January so by then the contest would be over and i would barely have my tank in a cycle so look for a thread on it then.

Why don’t you just get a small piece of LR and let it cycle for awhile with the Maxi-Jet providing flow? My LR is just 3lbs and cost me $15. When you get some more money, you could add 10lbs of dry sand. Just my 2˘.

When you get the new rock just put it in a bucket with a pump and let it cure for sure before you stick it in you contest tank.
