DIY All Glass Tank, ADA style rimless, frameless, and finished!!! - 56K Warning


Back from 5 days away and not leaks. (I would have been surprised if there were though)

But better yet... my plants arrived! Now to get down to the real reason for doing all this...

Hey Steve: Now its time for you to start a new thread in the photo album with a pic of the "blank canvas" and it's progressions.

If your anything like me, you'll go into the "artist zone" and forget all about pictures til the scape is nearly complete.

So...... what are you waiting for...... start the thread already.

Yup,

Will do! But going to get the last plumbing pics in first - probably some time next week. And going to do a separate thread to wrap up lessons learned/how-to.

Plants/aquascape will go elsewhere, but I'm not planning on posting anything about that right away. No too interested in posting about greenwater and scraggly plants. I'm going to wait until the tank gets past that little bit of fun.

be sure to post links to both new threads in this one congrats on the continued success, and can't wait to see it full of plants

It is time to start a new aquascaping thread. Link it back to this thread, but start a new thread for your new venture!

Default ok, ok, OK!

I was gonna wait until the tank looked a bit better, but I'm getting beat up here. So I've started a thread a bit earlier than I wanted, so try to be nice with pooh-poohing OK?

Here ya go.

The first post has an index in it barb. It's listed in the index as "Offering to the Gods of Glass".

Default Last Post (that's the intention anyway!) - Plumbing

OK, I said I'd post plumbing pics. You can find them now here in my new tank thread.

When life calms down this fall, I'll sit down and write my lessons learned in a new thread. Shorter, easier to follow I hope.

Thanks for all the help and encouragement folks! Pls say "Hi" in my new thread! Your company has been both valuable and fun!

Signing off this monster thread with warm regards. Your friend - Steve

PS - I've tried to summarize all the stuff I learned here in this thread, for hopefully slightly easier reading.
