Well took the rest of the fish in to my co-worker on Friday. Now just have to empty the tank, clean it, fix the stand and make my sump. Lots of work ahead.

Yay! Can't wait to see how this turns out. You seem to have the patience to really get it done right and not rush it, so I'll try not to push you along! Haha! What's first?!? 😜 seriously though, good luck! I'll be watching so keep us posted on your progress!

Thanks SD. First I will empty the tank and clean it really good. Then i have to figure out how to convert a dual dorso overflow into a dual herbie overflow. That is going to take some time and planning.

I will be draining and cleaning out the tank tomorrow. Still not sure what type of plumbing setup i will do. Ive been trying to read up on the different plumbing setups trying to get a better understanding so i can do what is best for my tank. May take some time to figure this out.

Would it not be easier to clean before it dried out?
