The XP1 arrived, but the quick-release valve was broken. The seller said he'd ship me another one as soon as I notified him, though - so I'm quite happy about that.
Hopefully that will come in this week. My Big Als shipment should come in tomorrow, with some misc. supplies for this project (thermometer, Prime, etc)
The acrylic lily pipes came in from fishman8909 too- I think they're going to work well and look really nice.
Still haven't had a chance to go pick up the ColorQuartz, maybe tomorrow. Keep getting tied up with work.
List of things I need:
Quick Release valve to arrive
New 10gal tank
Plastic floor guard for office (to keep the carpet from getting wet during tank maintenance)
Materials for hardscape
Supplies I have:
Black wood tank stand
Acrylic lily pipes
10gal hood with new 15watt T8 bulb
1 bag Onyx sand
Looking over the list of things I still need, it will be at least 3 weeks before I am able to buy any more of the supplies I still need to really get going on the tank (that new XP4 for my 90gal took up my entire budget between now and then LOL). I still do have plenty to work on though, since I'll need to wash all my substrate and I also plan on trying to collect some hardscape materials locally if possible.
