Nothing wrong with mild salsa. I use it more these days than hot to prevent heartburn.

I agree. Heartburn becomes very unattractive the older you get.

I got a notification that my flow has been shipped. Time to plan to how to attach the plumbing to the return pump. The big decision is to go hard or soft plumbing.🤔

Is there a benefit of one over the other or is it just aesthetic?

Traditional boulonnaise, and most Italian sauces - tomatoes are american-italian more than proper-traditional as the fruit itself was of foreign-import, actually include local peppers like jimmy nardello or bomba's and tend to be at least mildly-spicy.
So, yeah lol, mild salsa w/ a bit more tom paste and some italian seasoning would probably work out alright with a little parm XD

Oh, yeah, and following along lol.

I'm sure the is a benefit to having one over the other, I have always used a combo of both. easier to maintenance the soft plumbing because nothing is glued.

thanks! this one is actually version 2. The first one was a little too big and the slots didn't really flow right with water going through it.

the reasoning behind the slots is all about flow, and hydrodynamics.

Thank you! glad you're here for the ride too!

 

 

So I have found the lighting that im going to use for this build, im on the fence of using a T5 hybrid.  I have a standalone 24" T5 and a couple of AIprimeHDS.  Even though the tank is going to get an average of 4 hours of direct sunlight daily, from a southern facing window. the real dilemma is that the standard mounts for the AIprimes will not work with custom lagoon. unfortunately I will have to build a custom light mount that will incorporate the T5 and the primes. 

My return nozzles should be coming in any day now, which hopefully by this weekend ill have water in this tank.

I bet it's all about getting the flow right. maybe I hire you to make one for the fiji cube... I was gonna do a egg crate media basket but damn that looks like some janky sh*t compared to yours.

So I have been a little busy today and I managed to make a light rack to go over the tank. I used 3/8 clear acrylic it’s going to hold up the T5 hybrid lights.A036A6F9-84B8-424C-847E-50EEABD29B6D.thumb.jpeg.f254b9723fd169993e232b6610730686.jpeg

Here is a shot of it on top of the tank

i think I’m going to “wrap” the top part with mirror acrylic. I’m in the fence about it still.

 

 

mainly my flow nozzles have arrived.

I want to thank @Vivid Creative Aqautics for sponsoring the flow of this beast of a tank. I’m very excited to get this puppy plumbed and water in it.

You can't just casually drop in mirror wrap and leave it hanging?

I haven’t decided yet but the orange pops though. Plus the tank already has a green bottom, Irish flag? 🇮🇪 😆

I have a large scrap bin full of mirror acrylic with minor cosmetic scratches. What’s wrong with hiding all the lights?2E921666-C2CB-4D2B-A9C4-5A8E9273B2C8.thumb.jpeg.b05bb50f72cf1a4590ef204ce3fded8f.jpeg
