thelub He was posting on ReefCentral for a while. I bet he went to the dark side with it before he even got fresh water in it.

trailsnale would love to know where this stands....

kwheeler91 Maybe he filled it and everything died. This threads so long I cant remember if the guy has ever kept discus before. Anyone know? Would be one hell of an expensive trial run lol. But seriously who in their right mind could stare at an empty tank that long? Especially one so large. Would have put some crappie in there in the beggining and had some nice sandwiches by the time anything tropical made its way in.

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
08-20-2014 04:49 AM
DGarone My money, not to be mean, is that it won't happen for one reason or another.
