Btw. Great tank.
I think the correct question is if he ships!
USPS 30 minute shipping.

On a side note, great tank! Why's the blue background a bit too small?

it's actually the exact same size of the tank. I am thinking of changing it so the sides and top are also panels. Not really sure if I glued plexiglass would it be sturdy enough to hold itself. Also should it be concave or straight back on the corners of the box.....

update =)!!!



anyone notice anything? No more wall showing =)

Simple fix I cut some plexiglass and and taped it to the one already mounted to the wall. A bit ghetto, but hey it works and I didn't have to mess around with glue.



Also I didn't like the light spillover I was getting on the background (drastically reducing the effect of the backlighting) and the room itself was very bright. So I installed some eggcrate in the canopy.



Lighting was reduced, but not too much. To fix it, I dropped the canopy down about an inch and plants are still pearling and growing.

I also went ahead and choose the blue-eyed forktail rainbowfish. Really hard to get a picture of, they are really fast.



They are kinda cool but I was expecting the yellow to be more. I will keep them for now and decide in a month or so if they will be staying long term. I think I may add a small group of a larger fish though.


Should I add a small school of a larger fish?

What does everyone think?

no bacon right now but I need to break down this guy



I will get 2 shoulders (butts) which will probably turned into sausage =). Also one loin which will be cut into 8oz portions and used for our pork entree. then the belly will be the next batch of bacon in about 5 days after the cure. So I will post some pics of it after that happens
