Naw. Believe me, she will have her own tank/s at some point. I'm hoping it's something we can enjoy doing together when she gets a little older

No rush. I am takin my time getting wet too. I still have to break up the rocks I have in a bucket to make them manageable for the pico, and I’m in no hurry seeing as the competition goes for months

You inspired me to have one cause I saw the janky background cutout that you “are/were” going to put on. So I decided to make my own. Photoshop was a pain since I had to change everything to grayscale and make it all different shades of grey so it would look as if it has layers

Yes, occasionally.

Right now we’re making about 300 3.5gallon display containers (I like remaking them for dosing containers)

Thanks I didn’t want to have a blank back panel or get a cling. Took about 30 minutes to draw and etch
