You bet! When I started aquascaping, designing a scape as all that the thrill was about. Quickly though that had company...making your own stuff, fighting and winning against algae...that's what makes this hobby more fun IMO.

!shadow! l just finished reading all 3 pages and wow those stands are badass! The only suggestion l might add is you could always spray paint the copper tubes with gray/silver to match with the stand :P unless you like the copper other than that it's top notch.

Thank you very much. I had bought a lot of my tools. Unless you want to own a variety of tools for the long run, consider renting them instead whenever you are ready. That would be much more budget friendly for you.

I am with you on that. That's why I did not change my avatar. But I realized that it had several design flaws for which it did not work out the first time. I am working behind the scene in a different approach to rectify those errors and come up with a similar scape. Not for winning an ADA contest (not that I would not love to ) but that is very near to my heart and I don't want to give up on it. Thank you for your appreciation and encouragement.

Thanks for sharing, you make me want to build a similar ADA setup but I have no more room.
Thank you very much.
