OMG that is so my fiance! I just read it to her and she started cracking up and said "See it's not just you that has to deal with it!" :icon_lol:

When I start getting my tank set up I'll be using the forum for counseling since my fiance will drive me crazy with something sitting out of place over night lol.

By the way, tank is looking great! Can't wait to see this progress. I like the stand/canopy... looks very nice!
