Yup, I want to do atleast like 2-3 coats of primer, then another 3-4 coats of a matte black or grey. Not sure what I'm gonna use just yet.

Another late night update:
Got the wood painted. Just have to move the 20L over and get these cords more tidy.

Mini-update pictures:



Just storing my manzy in here at the moment, don't worry. Not a scape. lol


Playing around with panorama.
Before:

After:

I'll be removing the 20L stand and the little desk/table on the right once I get everything switched over to the new rack.


The wood pieces in here are what will be used in the other 3G tank.

The sunsun 302 is running in the 20L only. Been ~2 years since I've got it and the flow is perfect, in my opinion.


Also, I'm gonna try to get an update tonight, I moved everything over to the rack. I didn't give enough room between the 2nd and 3rd shelves, so there's not much space above the 20L (maybe like 6 inches). Gonna have to move the 3G long shelf up one or two slots.

I really need to get a better camera than my iPhone

Anyways, mini-update.

Everything in place, I think.



20G Long FTS
Some manzy, trying to think of a scape for it, but ATM just water logging.






3G Long FTS

The X-mas moss I superglued on there is really struggling rightnow. Lots of yellowingD: The floaters are thriving though, had to remove a lot earlier.


Also, could I get help with a moss ID? They look so similar but idk which is what.
Sold to me as NL


Sold to me as MRM (IIRC)

Someone forgot their clothes. lol

Will post the other 3G long once the cloudiness clears up a bit more.

I might get some Snow White/Golden shrimp as well.. Still deciding.

Thanks for the advice Han, I'll try that out once I go lights on later tonight. lol I understand what you mean though.

On another note, came home today from class to the tank at 81F. I asked both of my sisters TWICE to turn the fan on the tank once it started getting hot. Of course they didn't though-_- The CRS seem very "groggy" and "slow" atm, a little worriedD:

They have three DBP tanks. 1g, 1.5g, and 3.2g. I got my 3.2g from them.

They definitely are nice, I really like the black silicone job rather than a clear/white. I'm still deciding if I want to paint the back of the 2nd DBP tank, but I have to decide soon before things get permanent.

I did get the tank from Allpets.com, as well. Cheapest place to find it. Local fish stores I've been too sell the same dimension tanks for $40+.

Hopefully I get an update in soon, but I just got 10+ TT's from Ohbaby yesterday and 5 more TT's from Nick today, in addition to 6 more CRS from Nick as well.

The second 3G long is still empty as I decide what I want to put in there. I'm really trying to hold back on Taiwans until I'm able to control my temp. betterD:

Not really an update, but a short video of what two of the tanks are looking like rightnow.

Not sure how to embed, but here's the clip, watch in HD!
