So.... I may have gone overboard over the last couple days.
It is ALL good though!! It is definitely hard to hide my excitement for this new set up!
This is the wood & 20lbs of the Seiryu stone I bought, the other the 30lb was randomly chosen.
I placed an order for an Eheim 2215 canister filter & one of the 200W Hydor in-line heaters.
Since I plan to put this tank in my bedroom I wanted to build a stand that would take care of the other tanks in my room. I've got a shelving unit currently holding my 55g & 20L emergent tank, as well as my former 20H Tilly tank. I want to switch it to the 40 breeders that I picked up a couple years back for growing crypts and such.
Here is the space & I want this tank to be where I currently have the chair in the second pic(I was doing laundry today).
I fell in love with @Dou
's new custom built stand! I need to change the dimensions for my own space of course. I will probably make it into two separate pieces for easy transporting and easier use in future locations. Especially since I'm currently living with my sister while I'm in school!
I stole these from @Dou
to show you this badass stand of his!!
I discussed building this with my pops tonight as he had way more woodworking experience & tools than I do.
Now for the fun part!!
I picked up this CO2 regulator build by @flowerfishs
! It is: PraxAir 432 series full Stainless Stell dual stage CO2 regulator system w/ glycerin filled gauges, dual SS solenoids, dual SS Hoke 1300 series metering valves & dual bubble counters w/built in check valves. It's set up to run two separate tanks on different time schedules! I'm so stoked! Honestly, it's way overkill for my current needs but I figure if I'm gonna buy a nice regulator I wanna only buy it once!
I also ordered this 15lb re-certified steel tank.
I will probably build a DIY inline CO2 reactor. I haven't decided what type yet. I'm definitely open to suggestions.
I've been scouring aquascape pics for things I like! I'm definitely going for more of a nature style.
