Thanks 🙏 

im not happy with it, I accidentally overflowed the seam on the lid and made a slight mess on top. Can’t see it unless you run your hand across it..also I should’ve got something etched on the sides. It would’ve “glowed” or had more fluorescence kick to it. I can always make another 😂

Lol 😂 I know I’m kind of tempted to do an all acrylic coral tank. But that would be very tedious, and consume a lot of my time 😩

I got this puppy setup I think I’m going to do daily WC and have it pull “fresh” water from the 160. 🤤way awesome. Ole lady was like you better not have bought that!(as she is vigorously scrolling through bank statements)  

 

Also I was given some brightwell bio cubes that I had in my sump since the beginning discussion of the contest. Which helped the cycle tremendously. It was literally like a day or so a “mini cycle”

All of the rock and sand that is in the tank has been sitting in my sump of the 200g for about a year after my exwife accident

 

the aquascape i used my diamond band saw to cut the rocks into small slabs very much like how TLF Stax.

here is a FTS (4/27/19)

Apparently I have more to come!

im just glad I already had the biological ready. Plus I used dirty water from the 160. Probably helped too. 

 

Thanks 🙏 I’m probably going to change the trap door on the lid I don’t know how I feel about the mirror acrylic

I can have it setup to do daily WC if I wanted. I would have to put the HOB on a timer so it wouldn’t run dry during that time. The waste and fresh lines would pull and release into the 160 sump. 🤔

i May set that up in the next couple weeks.

Let’s take a step back and wait for things to settle down.. I know other contestants are rushing to get stuff done, while I’m walking down easy street 😝
