So today I cleaned everything and painted the tank. My many "helpers" made it slower than it should have been.


Rocks


Sump, Little Black Cat, and Raspberry Plant.


Tank, More Rocks and Pumpkin.


Rubble leftover from shipping fragile rocks.


Smokey is too cool to get involved. He just watches from afar.


At this point when Sprocket comes to observe the action, I realize that she is covered in cheese and has obviously gotten my queso off the table. At this point I was looking under furniture for evidence of cheese.

After the cheese incident, I returned to paint.



everything is now baking in the Georgia heat, checking for safety and cleanliness.

Briefly put rock in the tank to see how it looked.

Just finished finals so I haven't had much time to sleep, much less work on a tank.

Hopefully we should be up and running in the next two weeks.

Mmkay so today was actually pretty productive. Sump is under the tank. Rock is in the tank. Sand is in the tank.

The sandbed looks really deep. It's only maybe 3" but it looks so much deeper. I think it'll settle out a bit with the powerhead pushes it behind the rocks. I got as much back there as possible. I ended up only using about 80 pounds of the sand. Not quite sure how that worked.

Either way all it will take is a trip to home depot to get this working. And the extras got my pico set back up.
