Silmarwen Just checking in. I'm bouncing with excitement--this is coming along so wonderfully!! It's possibly the longs thread (chronologically) I've ever followed, but it's so unbelievably worth it to see this slowly coming together. I'm glad you got a bit of water in it already, although it'd probably be more satisfying if it actually touched the bottom of the tank

Dan110024 Well done on the attention to detail. Just when you think that you've thought of it all, you pull another trick from your bag.

How are you going to combat a regular and accurate fresh water drip system? I don't have much/any experience in them, but I would think a more reliable solution would be a dosing pump hooked up to a fresh water source. That's how I've always envisioned a regular fresh water feed to be setup.


Not to go off topic here, but I got thinking about what would happen if work asked you to relocate for a few months while at a crucial time after filling. How would you respond to that? In our eyes, it might seem completely reasonable to decline the offer or push to stay where you are, but in other peoples/management eyes it might not look so good at all. After all this work and preparation, to fill it and have to maintain and watch it through the most crucial stage, I doubt it would be as easy as getting a family member or an inexperienced friend to look over it while you're gone.

When I say 'you', I mean the general/avid tank keeper.

Lilyth88 And here I thought I was bad. I started my 30 gallon in June and it still doesn't have water yet. I'd be going NUTS if I were this guy!

alemao420 Any progress?
Props to the patience, dude started the tank back in 2011 and it is not done yet. I'm already going mad anxious reading the whole topic, I would've gone bananas if this were to be my tank.
Again major props for the build and stellar props to the patience.

thelub It will happen, but he might go straight to a full blown reef instead of a planted setup

DGarone My money, not to be mean, is that it won't happen for one reason or another.

EwDeg As I read through this journal in one sitting, and saw many comments along the lines of "24 pages and no water?!" I thought to myself "there's sure to be water and fish on page 40." Heh, well here I sit amazed. Amazing build so far! Can't wait to see the discus!

MaxLaf Okay, I'm off topic but could you please take a picture of your backyard? Looks pretty much like my dream house :P

That's very cool. Do you have any plans to plant anything in it or are you just going to let nature do it for you? Some iris would look nice and would spread rather quickly. Lobelia cardinalis is another favorite of mine that can fill in and give you lots of color.

Pickerel weed usually has purple flowers although there is a white variety but I think you might have arrowhead in there by the looks of the remains of the flowers in the first picture.
