My pooch is doing well now thanks for asking. Somehow she still manages to get a hold of one of my son's toys every now & again.

I love the finish. Where I live people pay a lot of money for distressed wood cabinets. Maybe it's a southern or Cajun/Creole thing but "old" is definitely the trend, even with new homes. Bravo for having the balls to take a risk. It's good to see that it turned out so nice.

Did you worry about pulling the fumes into the skimmer or did you run the air intake to another room as a precaution?

Thank you,. but as I said before it really does look 100% better in person,..I applied a clear coat this morning and that put a nice little sheen to it,....re.air,..nope ,.just used a fan and big pwc,..it really wasn't that bad ,...I was actually picking out wood with knots and notches and purposely made some of the joints rather gappy just to add to the feel of old rustic lobster trap ,..oh well,.she's done for now but I will be adding to it in time.,my gf is convinced of this !!

I'm going to do a comparison of the Rapid LED Onyx light to a regular Chinese panel over on my Dynamic Aquarium thread. They are very nice.
Love your cabinets!

Guess I'm lucky, my Home Depot has a bank and liquor store in it. I should live in a trailer out back.

What do you guys think about the advantages or disadvantages of 2 part dosing vs a calcium reactor setup? Saw a used reactor for sale, but it looks like a pain to setup. Been using BSR chemicals and a dosing pump for a few years and it does pretty well. Maybe if it ain't broke, don't fix it.

Ain't broke don't fix it. The co2 bit concerns me personally, lowering ph and then raising it... Sounds like I'd screw it up hard.
