I took out all the AS and started removing the black paint from the back glass. Waiting on my friend to come over and help me move the tank so I can get to the rest of the paint to remove. He is tentatively coming this weekend so I might have pictures of the rescape next week. My wife is also due in a month so that's top priority with getting things ready, etc. I figure I don't want to order a couple hundred dollars in plants until the spring anyways. I'm not a huge fan of testing USPS this time of year (snowing/cold here). Slower than I'd like but it's I'm keeping busy with other hobbies so it's not killing me.
