Sorry for the lack of updates, been busy...

 

 

So here's my update for today, please mind the tape as my wife is still painting the room...

 

Got the plywood last night, so here's the tank on the ply with styro between. The shims are to lift the ply and help to evenly support the styro. Let me know if you see any issues... Yes the tank is raised by over an inch with all the material, so I'll have to get creative with my trim work...

And a shot I just had to take.

The thread on RC was actually nominated for ThOTM so thanks everyone for your support and votes, I really appreciate it! I probably won't/can't win but really honored to be nominated. The guy winning has an incredible idea!!!! Be sure to check it out.

Yeah, that solar tank is sweet! It's funny before the voting thread opened, I was showing my wife how cool that solar setup is. :D Please do not vote for me because I'm a Nano-Reefer, please vote your honest preference. I don't think I stand a chance and I'm just honored to be nominated.

Looks great. Only thing is, you will have to get a chair with wheels so you can roll back and forth. No just sitting in one place and staring. I can't wait to see your magfloat. :P

I voted for you! While the solar tank is nice, I guess it's not a huge surprise after reading about Richard Harker's 2000 gallon tank 6 years ago...or Dr. Lee Cin Eng's paper in the '60s.
