i dont think i want to know what 400g of water shipped from petco would cost lol.

that fishplace has a deal for 6.99 everything shipped. my lfs has 200g of io salt for $91 a box. thatfishplace was 44.99 a box i think.
44.99 x 2 + 6.99 = good deal compared to lfs. add in the refractometer on the same 6.99 shiped im pleased.

first coat looking into the tank.



after about 5 coats looking from behind the tank



my only advice on painting the tank is to be moving the can like you would when your paining before you start spraying. i have 2 runs from when i started spraying before moving.

and the view from my bad




ok question time. are the fish going to care when i make it day and night? the reason i ask is i work nights and my days off i try to stay on a night schedule as much as possible. so if i keep the lights on at night ill get to see my fish more. also i have black out currents on my window and if i turn on lights during the day it defeats the purpose of the black out currents.

Your fish won't care... the sun is their clock as long as it is dark (judging by the good drapes in your bed room it is) when the lite is off they will follow your "day". I haven't yet seen a fish with a timepiece.
