I am sort of a manager... but ya I see my tank falling further behind then that... we will see. I have so much going on in real life and the tank hobby... I still haven't started soaking my DIY rock... and I still have to make about another 150 lbs of the stuff... looking at ordering my lights from china... takes up to 7 weeks from the time I place my order before they get here.

As long as you plan the scope and accomodate the delays involved - you can't lose. Remember not to under estimate; it's always good to over estimate. When you reach your endpoint sooner than expected and come in under budget, you feel as if you have accomplished more.
(Project Manager in training )

Maybe you can start outsourcing! (Family) It's cheap and more efficient.

It definitely seems like you aren't sacrificing quality to meet a deadline so keep the deadline and then do it as you can right? This is going to be one of the coolest tanks!

My wife can't read English and doesn't like to get dirty. My kids are too young to help and my dad isn't what I would call net savvy and doesn't like the idea of working with cement... and those are all what I'm working on atm for fish stuff. I'm going to have like 30-50 LED's for my tank... each with it's own heat-sink and fan... now I'm thinking about everything else I need to do... plumbing, rock, balancing my water parameters.

If you need to re-caulk, you can get the moisture off the surface for a good adhesion by cleaning with acetone from a local hardware store. It works great, but be aware -- it is flammable!
