Good things kid got the week off.

Just my hands are all dry from winter and water playing that the SS mesh keeps poking and giving me small cuts haha.

I made 30 yesterday got more to go! lol

But tonight is the night lol!

I cleaned the old HOB for the tank.
Well done on this, how exciting!

I hear you on the SS tearing up your hands. I work with wire a lot too and it gets old sometimes, haha.

I love seeing stuff like this, this hobby is awesome where we all support one another in different ways!

Awesome for you man. Seeing threads like this is bad for me as I haven't set up a new tank in over a year and now I'm thinking of where I can fit another one.

Hm.. I know you have the 10G's lined up that way to save space, but then it'll be hard to see if anything's up with the shrimp in there? Or are you goign to keep these tanks nearly bare?

Also, is there even going to be enough room for you to work on those tanks? Doesn't look liek enough space between those shelves!

Fish Shrimp tanks are like cups of coffee, one is never enough.

There are 2 types of people on this forum. Those that have algae, and those that lie and say they don't.

Think we need to have a cookout over there celebrate your finished room.

Looks like you have Bio-Wheel 400's in the 40G Breeders unless Marineland makes an even larger filter.
  • What did you do with the intake of the BW to keep the critters from going through?
  • What type of material is the floor mat/runner that you used in front of the breeders?

At this rate you should be done with a large majority of the tank arrangement 30 days from now.

Hope you're ready for this weekend's storm. I would try to make sure you have some sort of emergency plan for your room first before I would set anything else up.

    There nothing in the 40b beside one with fishes. Most will have nothing.

Thick black vinyl runner that sold at home depot by the feet.
Works great so the board under the tank don't get wet. And great for the floor so I can wipe it right up.

Ya should be around there.

Great progress h4n.

To the post above me, I think they're calling for only a few inches where I live in CT, I'm not too worried. I did buy a generator last night though.

temporary tanks for the time being...
