yeah yeah, I think allen used actual rope IIRC. This is some generic trim from lowes. lol

Canopy is ready for stain, I just don't have it in me tonight to lay down the first coat. Perhaps tomorrow after work.


The top of the canopy stands to just above my eyebrows, and I'm 6' tall. I really like the height of it now that it's upright.

Looks good will have to have all you that have built one help me when I get the point of building one for my "big tank" build. That build will be a few years off.

I've been thinking about that. Hoping to finish the canopy this weekend. Just needs a light sanding and a final coat of stain and it'll be ready for equipment to be installed.

I picked up a few cherry picked pieces of rock as well from a local who was getting rid of it, it's in the bin curing with the rest of it.

Time to get over my fear and drill the tank. It's still up on the stand, like in the picture, and I have the 2 powerheads in it and I keep constantly staring at it trying to figure out where to drill it for the CL. I have several different ideas, I guess I just need to pick one and do it and get it over with.

I still need to build a small stand to go inside the stand to elevate the 10g fuge up above the sump so gravity can run the overflow. Figuring that's 20 min worth of work (it'll be inside, so it doesn't have to be pretty), and I intend on finishing that this weekend also.

Then, time to start the plumbing stuff. Know what I want to do with it, just have to figure out how to make it all come together.
