ya i agree. i love reading peoples tank builds. you can get ideas, learn from mistakes and you get to use hindsight and see what an idea did down the road. plus you get to see there imagination at work since aquariums are like snow flakes. no 2 are alike.

i have never worked with wood before or pvc pipe. never really been a diy person and so im really excited about the progress so far. my diy rocks i think are coming out amazing. and at 33cent a pound its great. my diy stand looks nice so i cant complain. and working on the diy sump/over flow now. hope it works out lol

Are you making many caves with your rock? I find balloons are awesome for making caves/tunnels. My tank has now been ordered so I'm getting excited (I was going to make my own tank but nobody could get me the glass and guarantee the dimensions of the glass be accurate to 1/16")

Yes, that's what I'm saying. If it's a little to much you can always divert back to the sump.
