Twitch, hope you don't mind my stealling you thread for a second but.....

I think I just scored big time. I may be trading out about 2 days worth of electrical work plus $100.00 worth of materials for a 140 gal with stand, glass top, 4 lamp T5 HO Fixture, wet/dry filter and pump. Hot Dog!!!!

Well, considering I just finished building a 6 lamp fixture from scrap material, I guess I can build an 8 lamp next.

Good to hear. Glad someone got some good news. Had my deal on the 140 done did only to get an e-mail last night saying that someone else jumped in before me. Why he didn't tell me that before we came to agreement is beyond me but......

What did you give for the cpr Twitch? Just curious. That is the basic design I copied when I built mine.

I gave 107? It's the 1200gph model off aqua cave. I didn't do the deluxe because I already had the lift pump that sweety pie bought for the DIY PVC one I made. I did see that if I want the lid I can buy one at a later date. Went to the home depot last night and started plumbing. I've got to go back and exchange one of my unions. Some one threw a threaded union in the slip joint box and I didn't catch it until I was trying to cement my pipe to it.

I also plumbed my pump's 3/4 return line in 1". Hoping that's not a mistake.



Sorry to hear about your tank deal possibly falling through. Hope the guy flakes and you can do the trade for it.
