Teflon tape will work, you just need to put more on, so that the threads fit tight.And make sure you don't go against the thread when wrapping the tape, or it will come off inside the fitting. I can't wait to see what you do with this. Keep us updated.

You could try blue locktite. IDK if it will stick on PVC but it should keep it from unscrewing.

Kali,
I like it! Are you planning on leaving the right side of the tank open?

I really like the driftwood "structure" you have built. Nice job. Missing the cichlids yet??

actually, i think if you move the whole pile over about 6-7" to the left, it'll be just about perfect. it might get to looking cluttered if you add a lot more. that's just an old punks opinion though... lol

is that a reef behind you?

EDit - you know... now that i've looked at it a bit, it might look pretty cool if you ditch those rocks and replace them w/ some crypts(you'd have to let them get really big though - just a thought.)

what plants are you planning on?

What would Honey Badger do?

the driftwood looks good, the gray rock is out of place though.
