quick. first reaction without knowing what these placements are for exactly. Do these points look contrived, or "off" in any way? Hint: the one that's towards the front about 1/3 in from the left will be the main focus. (no I won't be using wood and to go containers for my scape lol, but I'm too much of a perfectionist to just go with the flow (sadly)
lemme know what you think (or if you think I'm insane for asking what people think of my to go containers without any more details.
well I'm no good at updates. I'm having my basement worked on at the moment. It's going well, so I should finally be able to start real work on these tanks in a few weeks. I think I might be just doing two planted tanks, as the more I researched, the more I figured having the reef running was going to outpace my budget. I could adjust for it... or I could hope to retire someday lol.
the physical setup of the tanks is already done. I think people will like it, even if everyone I know keeps calling me a wannabe aquatic Frank Lloyd Wright when they see how I have the basement setup for the fish wall. Admittedly, it looks a little funny without the tanks in, but I think it'll be awesome when the whole wall is actually up. Right now it's just a vision in my head though lol.
I was thinking of doing one structured, tightly "scaped" tank and one collectoritis jungle so I can have the best of both worlds. (especially since all the best scapes I've done people aren't satisfied with, but when they see my random jungle tanks, they go oooh that's AWESOME! lol)
wow was this thread started 6 friggin months ago? lol well it's almost time to set up tanks down there lol. (sort of) the basement guy is doing the last coats on the mudding and sanding now. Then it's just up to doing the facade in front of the tanks, a few final wiring tweaks for the fish room, and I can START working on plumbing hahaha. Seems like it's going at a snail's pace, but that's okay.
STILL not fully decided on what's going in the tanks yet. I am loving the reef I have set up in the living room now. I bought a used setup just to see what it's like and hooboy It's nifty. I can see all sorts of awesome little critters and corals, etc and don't have to trim every three days! I've almost convinced myself to go with two reefs lol. I guess I'd better make up my mind soon before the basement's complete and I have to start plumbing things together!
or.... marine planted tank! Been thinking about that one too. /shrug I don't know. I'll figure it out. The basement stuff should be done this weekend or next, so it'll be go time with the deciding then.
