I just go by the motto of what comes around goes around. All about karma. If only everyone had that attitude there'd be alot less violence and issues in the world. Just do unto others yada yada yada....

Just found out where the carpenter is and it's 2 hours each way. Soo guess thats not an option anymore. I'd spend $40+ in just gas and tolls.

So I;m back to my original plan on the LFS one with the taller stand for 269. :-( I even tried to get a discount from him, even a little bit and was denied. I guess there isnt a huge margin on those items.
Bummer..

269! Like I said you could pay someone 30-40 to build the one I posted if you put an ad up on craigslist.

I wish I still lived up north. :-( I'm from NY so that would've been a hop skip and a jump. lol

I am guessing i'm stuck buying the silly stand. Nothing has popped on CL at all, especially a decent stand, I've seen some garbage ones that won't work but that's about it.

I guess I should get this thing painted so when the stand arrives i can put it up. sigh*** So impatient now....I think I may drop the prices on my 55g setup just to get it to move.

Another thought, my wet/dry has a skimmer in it already, made by the manufacturer of the sump, sealife systems which I'm guessing is gonna stink.

Should I save my remora pro for this tank or sell it off? I for sure have NO room in the wet dry for another skimmer, absolutely no way anything is gonna fit in the first chamber. I also wanted to add filter socks if possible but it's dobtful they would fit either.

Anyone have any thoughts on anything I typed up?

Here is a photo of the sump again, do you think by looking at it I can get filter socks in there?

The remora is a hang on so yeah, it would fit on the sump. Just wouldnt be able to put the lid on.

So keep the skimmer you think? What about the filter sock idea, anyone see any way to use one? Or should I get the adjustable tie on ones, that might work I'm thinking.....

Yeah, the remora is a great skimmer, at least for me it has been. lol

So far I';m planning on keeping the lights and the skimmer from the 55g. I guess I;ll just drop the price on the the tank and stand and fluval filter. Gotta be someone out there who wants it. lol

Then finally i can pick up the stand and get going. Still have lots of questions though....lol

what do you think huma, can I filter sock this setup or not? or should I even bother....
