Its in the house and level. Still a little away from water. Going to Arizona in a couple weeks I might have it wet and cycling while we're gone, but I'm betting it'll be dry until I get home

 

@jack1978 its not that difficult.

Well... delay in rock. The weather isnt favorable to gather rock, so we'll figure out a time to reschedule

Well the rock arrived. The princess unwrapped the paper the best she could and put the rock into the tank. I wouldnt consider it an aquascape as much as a pile of rocks.
