So it's been a week with no leaks. Test number one passed. I'm in the garage now emptying it.
I plan on still filling the rest of the gouge with epoxy and the ill start painting the back glass. I decided on black. Yay

Anyone have any comments about the skimmed or lights mentioned above?


Thanks everyone

Thing is I barely have the money for the eshopps one lol. My femora is rated up to 120 if I change the pump. The octopus was my first choice but I can't swing it for sure.

That's what I used to paint my other 125 I think. I am considering painting the stand black too. Its a deep mahogoney now. Im also painting the plastic frame on the tank black.

I think acrylic is supposed to be better on glass if you want to prevent peeling down the road. Also 3-4 thin coats is better. You can also use spray paint as long as you tape plastic or whatever over the top so it doesn't get inside.
