My Journal.40g.update*

So a little over a week ago my cat and a ladder got to my tank and i said that i will build a ada tank. So i thought about it and i said to myself if i buy the ada tank it wont look right without all of the glass ware and the stand and stuff and it did get pricey. So i made up my mind. I am got this tank(36"*18*16). I am going to trick this tank out with all of the glass ware. I got a glass diffuser on the way and a in line heater and lilly pipes on the way. I have not deiced what i want to do on the lighting. I am going to build a ada style stand. (IF ANYONE HAS PICS OF HOW TO BUILD ONE POST IT). I know i know now u are saying why didn't i get a ada tank because if i did i could not afford the lilly pipes and the glass diffuser and the stuff to make a stand. But Yeah i am fully tricking out my aga so i shall call it adag..(aqua design amano ghetto). so i guess ill make this into a journal. If u guys can help me out with plants that will be nice.(sorry 4 the bad pic)

Yes, that's true, I hope that the link I posted was helpful in some way...good luck! I have no carpentry skills whatsoever and if I was around a power tool I'd want to use it even if I didn't know how so its probably a good idea that these DIY projects are left to others, lol...

Very impressive woodworking. What kind of shop do you have set up? Looks to me like you've got more than just a miter box and a hacksaw at your disposal.

It is pretty common. Nothing to worry about. Add a little surface agitation and it should go away
