DIY acrylic V2.501

Recommended Posts

This guy is extra salty

It has been a wild week for me lack of sleep and been trying to work on things for this build but other stuff has taken precedence over anything else

my ole lady gave birth(emergency csection) on Tuesday 4/9/2019 to a 9lb 11oz. Boy.

 

Sorry I haven’t been replying to PM’s and other inquiries on the forum. But I’m getting into a swing of things now since they’re releasing the momma and baby tomorrow. 

 

I will reveal tank V2.501 tomorrow when I get the welds into place and my solution to my pump fitting. 

 

Also i have a stand brewing in the works too!

Looking forward to seeing the next tank you'll rebuild.

Anyone on bets for how many stand versions?

side note, why are wives referred to as old ladies? I want my wife to be called a young, hot thing.

It’s to throw off people you’re talking to, because no one wants a “mr steal yo girl”

Congrats!! Hope they're both doing well! My c-section boy was 9lbs 15oz. Now, at just 6mo old, he's 23lbs and in size 18mo clothes. Enjoy your "little" baby, they grow up so fast!!

Aquascape been broken/drilled it’s ready to rock and roll. 🎸

it has been sitting in my sump for about a year, I’ll probably lose the beneficial Bacteria while the acrylic weld is curing..

 

unless..

 

I was thinking of making rock inserts(with acrylic) that will allow me to slide and change the aquascape to different positions.. 

 

 

thoughts anyone?

Yes I’m going to be getting rid of it

i dislike the crazing, forgetfulness got the best of me. Especially the week prior to my son coming into this world..

Haha understandable. 

 

I'm not but would gladly pay shipping to 44123/price you're asking.

 

Understand entirely if you'd rather find someone local.

Nitrifying bacteria will survive for months without an ammonia source.

A slide puzzle aquascape?  That would be something.
