The Basement 90

Several have asked for a thread on the 90g I'm putting in the basement. It's far enough along and I have a few pictures of the journey.

It's a drilled 90 from Craigslist. DIY stand, side cabinets and bridge. Still work in progress. As of now, still need to build the side doors, paint (only primed). Sump is temporary. The final 30g sump will be behind the back wall.

Lights are temporary. Finish lights (pendants) will hang from the bridge.

Tank is cycled. 100lbs of Marco base, 30lbs of Figi cured, 20lbs of Tonga (soon) and 10-15 rubble (soon).

Here we go......

The journey starts in the summer....

The Tank






Trim Painted.....






Background Painted.....

Not really sure yet. I have to get my neighbor to help me hump that bridge up there and make sure all looks good. Then there is fluted trim which will bridge the gap between the tank and the columns up to the top of the tank and across the mid section so u don't see the blac trim in the bottom.

Livestock wise, not sure. Though I'm sure I'll get some suggestions..

Me too. Am more impressed with the organization skills in the garage.

I'll have you know I can fit 2 cars in there and still walk around.

Though one of my many faults is not putting crap back where I got it from. So I clean/organize once a month then clutter it up then repeat again.

Keeps me fit.. not sane .... but fit
