Very cool! Seems your on a pretty good roll at setting up. Yea that MaxSpect Gyre is extremely interesting to me. Maybe they will have it all worked out by the time I can afford one!

Thanks. I should be getting in the bulkheads and drill bits either today or tomorrow. So I will be able to drill my tank this weekend if nothing comes up that's more pressing.
If I get them in today, I plan on taking off tomorrow and drill the tank tomorrow. I will have to check the shipping status to see when they will arrive. I am getting really excited about the build now.

I have the bulkheads and bits but not sure I will be able to drill the tank this weekend due to a cold front coming in to my area this weekend.

Awww man. Yea we have one coming in this weekend as well. I'm sure its not as bad as in Maryland but they did salt the roads. Yea drilling a tank when its literally freezing is probably not a good idea. Definitely keep your eyes on the weather so we can get that baby drilled before it gets really cold everyday! Just an idea that popped into my head... could you drill it in a bathtub or shower indoors? Of course you would want to rinse it out well to get the glass dust out when you are done, but it seems like it could be a possibility maybe.

Yeah I thought about drilling it inside. I have a huge rubbermaid container that I just emptied out about a week ago. I was thinking I could put it in there and hook up my python that I use to clean my tanks for a water source.

Don't see why it wouldn't work.

Installed my filter sock holder with filter sock and placed my skimmer into the sump and glued in my media tray.
