Things are progressing slowly at the moment, mostly because I'm far better at growing aquatic plants than I am at constructing walls. I'm going to be finishing up the canopy portion (top of the wall) tonight and hopefully installing it. (if my friend doesn't flake out) If I get as far as I'd like tonight I'll definitely take some pictures.
still on the search for that inspiring hardscape, but I haven't gotten it locked in yet.
no pics tonight. too tired. heading to bed. back hurts. some other short sentence.
got the top wall section of the planted tank side done, got all the old wood, panelling, etc etc cleaned out of the fish room and ready to haul away, pulled the carpet in there and cleaned everything up. Just gotta finish the top side of the wall on the reef side and I can finally start plumbing something. pics incoming tomorrow sometime.
the reason is that my entire floor is graded to drain to the laundry room about 15 feet away. The stand on the right is shimmed to be level which brought the left side of that stand up about 1.5". I've since shimmed the entire left stand to be level and even with the right stand. (the left side of the left stand was off by more like 3" lol) all is well now though and I SHOULD be getting the other canopy done very soon. Then I can actually look at PLUMBING! finally lol
Can't believe I stumbled on this thread! I just finished viewing your last biuld and the next thread I find is this one.
Looking forward to watching the progress of this biuld
Those sumps are massive what a great use for those totes though.
I am currently slowly aquiring the equipment needed to biuld a 120 planted tank as well. Are you going with the mineralized soil and quartz substrate again. Substrate is one big question on my list yet
Looks like a sick setup jargon I dont know if i am mental or something but one thing i always loved was drilling tanks the stress of it all and then the reward of finishing with the tank in one piece always gave me a warm fuzzy feeling on the inside lol
Im in the process of setting up a reef as well, I wanted so bad to have a 75 reef and 75 planted tank side by side like you, but it just wasnt feasable in my house. So you may sense a slight amount of jealousy from my general direction over the course of your build.
Good luck, cant wait to see the progress.
