The pictures really put everything into perspective, even though the description that you gave us of what happened sounded terrible enough!

Hope you and your wife can get back on your feet and move back in as soon as possible. Will be keeping you in my thoughts.
Thanks, Phillip! It was scary... Looking back at the picks still sucks but I am really looking forward to getting it started back up again!

Yeah, and I will never take fire safety for granite! I hope everyone who reads this doesn't either.

The wife is having more fun than I. She just picked out the kitchen cabinets. She made a good choice though.

It could be worse
haha. I wish.... My wife did dive the "okay" to buy what I want. We were just looking at ADA AS. She said cost wasn't an issue since she loved the tank also. What should I get???

Good luck, and I will be waiting in anticipation for you next great venture!

Very cool to hear your wife appreciated the tank so well. I can't help you on ADA soil since I have no experience with it.

Here are some pics before the floors were taken out. I couldn't get through the whole house. I have some pics of the basement gutted also but I just have to find them...




I have no idea why that was sitting in the middle of the floor.... lol

Wow that looks so desolate and sad. But at least you can see the light at the end of the tunnel and know it is not an oncoming freight train.

Clint I'm using AS on my low tech nano and it's my first time using it, the difference is great with no dosing but the plants are growing well and not the painful slow growth that is the norm in a low tech so AS is a must from here out.

You have so much to think about with a green light from Momma, LED's, Low Iron Glass, wet/dry or canister, I think you need to find an inspiration tank and try something a little out of your comfort zone, you will alway be "Master of the red Stems" but it's time for a change. When you get a chance take a look at these 2 build videos maybe they will help.

Wow, it looks surprisingly well for what happened there! Now the wait, but at least all is going well and moving along. Good luck to you I hope all goes well! What every you decide to do when you can start a tank again, I am sure you come up something great and different. It's always nice to do a new tank or a total tank rescape (minus the time it takes)!

@150EH - SHHH, don't say all that, his tank is an inspiration showing how to achieve a great tank while using mostly stems. I think it looked great, but I would like to see another aspect added though.

Time flies when your having fun, are you out there Clint and how are things going for you and the family? I hope thing go well so we all get to dream about the lavish setup you are building as if it were our own, look at this journal for inspiration on page three or so he has a pile of ADA gear that is worth about 5K, I would have a better guess but my eyes were tearing up so bad I couldn't see the calculator.

Wow I totally missed this from earlier this year. I am so glad that everybody was safe. And glad that you didn't lose the whole structure too. I hope that the rebuilding is going well.

It's been too long, where are you and any thoughts on something new, not that your plate isn't full enough.

I have been gone for a while now.... I am happy to say that the house is being finished as we speak and I will be moving home next week!! I can't wait to finally be home again and have the tank back up and running.

I will post pics next week. I have a lot of things to buy yet....

What great news!

Cannot wait to see what sort of tank you get set up. Looking forward to it.

Yeah, I have lots of work to do! First I have to order some substrate.... I will most likely be doing that next week some time. Looking for good deals now but don't think the price really changes much on ADA AS.... I am pretty sure that I will need a butt ton of it too....

I will keep looking.
