The rebuild of my 30g Tank

Ok well my first one didn't go so well couldn't get rid of my diatom algae, my two clown loaches got ich, and my black ghost died so I decided to start over from the bottom up here's the link to my old tank https://www.plantedtank.net/forums/ta...ml#post1002854 I got inspired by looking at some of the DIY stand and rockscapes so I decided to make my own went to lowes and did a little research and Im going to put my self on a budget of $150 total. not including tools that I might need to buy or borrow. I plan on finishing up this project in about a 1 1/2 months it will be the final piece once we move into our new apt.

So here's the list of materials I have already bought

jewelers rouge 4oz 8.95 shipped (to remove some of the glass scratches)
Eggcrate 10.85 from Lowes (to make the rockscape )
Silicon I/ 5.00 from Lowes (rockscape)
Flat Black Paint .99 from Lowes (for filter inlet and background)
Coralife Bulb 16.45 from LFS Day-Max T12 20W
