Ok since I know how much everyone loves pics it's time for some where we were and where we are....

So I took the all of my beautiful oak off the top of the stand and put down a piece of 1/2 Hardibacker board (used for ceramic tile) to help my concerns more then anything...


Here is what we are shooting for with the rock work. Our short lived 150 tank with rock and fish in it...


Sand in the tank


SW going into the tank. Love the plate/bowl method


Another view of water going into the tank


A little over half full with one rock in the tank and my Nano Streams in place.



I have tons of work to do to get the rock back in the tank but i have several helping hands so it should go much faster this time around.

LOL, we have so many helping hands but we are all just standing around watching the tank fill up with water - I think it fills slower when you watch it... Oh but I did make the crew a healthy dinner of potato skins, bagel bites and beer!

As far as I'm concerned you are always welcome here. Just call first LOL. If it's to lend a helping hand well then you can just show up LOL.
