Thanks. Sure, give me about $600 bucks and I'll build you one! LOL. Actually it didn't cost me but around 60 bucks or so to build. But I got alot if the material for free. It did take some time And effort though. My gf actually wants my aquarium in the living room now!

Yep. As long as everyone keeps fingers off the tank! I hate smudge marks. All I'm waiting for now is my diamond bit to drill the tank. They sent me the wrong order. I ordered a 1 3/4" for 1" bulkheads and they sent me two 1/2" bits. Once I get this mess straightened out ill drill and install bulkheads and overflow box. Ill be doing the herbie method and painting the back of the tank black. Ill probably wait to do the tank transfer for when I move. Ill be moving in January.

I'm following. This looks amazing and I am planning an upgrade in a year or hopefully less.

Plumbed the bulkheads in. Gonna leak test it soon. I just capped off everything now. I will just cut and add coupling later when I set it up at my new house in Jan. I still gotta raise the emergency intake on my herbie method drain with some PVC pipe to raise it a hair above water level when I find that out. Here's pics now.

Sometime in-between here and before January I should be setting this tank up by doing the transfer. Hopefully all goes well and the herbie method works as planned.

Glued all the plumbing today. Got to move things into the new house early. Hopefully all is well with it. Also painted the back black. 3 coats. I still gotta get some hose clamps for the pump return and some conduit braces to secure the pipe real good. I plan to fill it up with tap water and test it soon. Tweek water drain levels and test leaks and what not. Wish me luck!
