THANKS! Yeah I decided to ditch water change code. I just got really terrified of giving the controller ANY code that had it turning off the main pumps without any real watchdog correction and I'm not much of a programmer so I couldn't think of a better way. No AC mods. I was considering a fuge and the heater is too long so I'm going to try and cover that up with my scape. We'll see...
Great work by the way. the buttons are a great idea and i agree with a lockout for them in case of kids or bumps. Have you done any mods to the AC as far as a fuge or housing for the heater?
The remora fits perfectly (height) on the back of a 20 Long. Only thing I'm curious about is how your hood will play with it. The one picture of the hood looks like it wants to lay on the rim of the tank all the way around, but the Remora has a pipe coming out of it that is going to demand some clearance above the lip of the tank.
Cool build, following along.
The canopy is going to hang from the ceiling via thin galvanized steel cabling. There's about 2" of clearance between a support rod in the canopy and the remora pipe. I would have finished last night but one of the two ceiling anchors I bought broke in half while I was installing it. Yikes. The remora fits AGA 20L perfect but this one is only 10" high so it hangs below some, but there's support on the stand as I knew this would be an issue.
Thanks! Love your tank...lots of inspiration was derived from your thread.
Awesome build dude... Matching and shanzzy!!
Thanks! Almost there...
nice work bro doesnt diy just feel so much better... did you water seal the inside... i used some johnsons water seal worked perfect
DIY is a blast and this was really my first piece of furniture so it was a really big ordeal. I did seal the inside with some old deck sealant I had leftover from a recent project.
--Rock should be in soon. Ordering sand today and I'll probably add water Monday night. I don't want things to run unattended all weekend until I've seen it in action for a few days and I'll be on vacation the entire time.
