Well in your case! I'm in a 4 room house, the guest house right down from my parents place. Taking care of the property is tiring, and limits how much room I have to work. I could lead a coup or march on their basement for more territory...but then I'd have to spend more time with them...LOL.

Wow, Mrc's got skills! Mighty big improvement. That side by side shot can't be denied.

It was actually really simple just a lot of work lol. While picking up the stuff to do this I was browsing there storage containers and what not and came across a Rubbermaid roughneck 50 gallon which seems to be pretty solid with a pretty smooth interior to work with. Does anyone have any experience with this brand of Rubbermaid bins and have an opinion on them? I'll post up a link in a sec.

No opinions? Got the three inside panes to finish up and both tanks will be ready for paint! Yay!

Not that people aren't following. I just don't have any experience with that container.

Well didn't grab much, honestly I was amazed at some of the prices at the store I normally go to as it seems they have raised everything about 5-10% : / ... Got 20x 1" frag discs, 15x 1.5" frag discs, 20x 1" frag plugs, 6.5 lbs of flat lace rock which I break down for natural frag plugs, and a full dose of chemi-pure elite, oh ya and can't forget the dog treats for my pup haha. I'm bout to run down to Lowe's and pick up most of the plumbing I need and order most of the other stuff I was looking at during the upcoming group buy. As for the 50 gallon totes I read on some hydroponics sites that they have an issue with the bottom seam leaking due to the fact that its molded with 4 small legs causing the bottom to bow out. Gotta find another sump then ...tractor supply has some "tuff" tubs that look promising though so may swing by there with my tape measurer later today haha.

Ok guys found a red sea Wavemaker pro just posted a little while ago on CL for $50 so I hit him up and all is good. Now before I pick it up I'd just like to hear any opinions some of you may have on this product.

Here's what I got, still need the hose but I don't kno pump placement yet so ill hold off on getting that and I still need to order return nozzles so I don't have the return extended yet just the barb,90,T,and ball valves in. Also got my pump hooked up to a union and check valve with a barb so that's good to go. Oh ya and my Wavemaker for $50 haha. One frag tank is almost operational
