ok, so since my last update, the general contractor (me) and the architect (again, me) have been battling it out about the left side of the tank. the contractor wanted to leave what was built, built. the architect thought that a nice hill structure on the left would help with the flow of the tank. architect won...lol that made me krap or get off the pot and i have to silicone the land sections down last week so that i could lay the tank on it's side to foam in the background. i completed that last night and this is where we stand.:
looking down from the left, you can see where the rocky hill will be. i won't be able to complete that section until i cover the background and do some touch ups on the land mass.:
left half from the front:
full length from above (kinda)
sorry the pics suck, but it's hard to take a good pic when the thing is laying on the floor (sort of)
i also made a spray bar for a water return/flow system. all holes are angled slightly up to clear the substrate. and there are also holes behind the land mass to provide flow under the land to avoid stagnant water.
the background will be covered in coco fiber as well as hydraulic cement. it should look pretty cool. ( i hope..lol)
that's all for now. i will try to post pics as i go along with the back ground.
