I have been planning and building this aquarium for almost a month. I will be moving into an apartment with my girlfriend at the end of February. The day we move in I am going to be setting up the aquarium and beginning the cycle. Until then I will be collecting the equipment and setting up the tank.
Update: 2/3/2012 - Everything has been purchased and the only major step that needs to be finished is the sump. The chambers need to be created and the plumbing needs to be completed. Was going to build a canopy for the tank but for the time being it is going to be topless until I decide that I want to build a canopy.
