No update. Beatles rock band came out today so I have been otherwise engaged >> I have friends over friday so i'm hoping I can weasel some suckers into mixing fiberglass. OR get some done tonight and have them mix epoxy. We shall see. I want to work on it tomorrow after my shipment from blue zoo comes (yay) so we'll see what errands look like. Hopefully nothing.

Total bill. Hrmm. Lots

I have all the reciepts somewhere, i'll do a run down when i'm done. Between glass, plywood and equipment i'd probably say about 1500-2000$? Big beefy canister filters and lights are not cheap.

It's fuuun. xD

The sump is to come. It's going to be hard to get under the tank so I didn't want something that I'd need to access a lot of space for. The canisters and the skimmer will be sitting by a side panel for now. Once I get used to the maintenance then a sump will follow, but as of now, to get under the tank, it will require moving a VERY heavy sofa.

You do know that M-300 skimmer is designed to operate in the sump only right?

Yes. I'm letting that sit in a bucket/tank/rubbermaid. There's not really a lot of HOB skimmers for more than 100g. Plus I don't really have a back to hang off of.

Until I can figure out the best way to manage the maintenance without moving the sofa, I can't really have a sump.

So you are going to put the tank on the sofa or over it?

I've built the stand to be the exact height of the sofa, so that it can sit behind the sofa and look all pretty.

The problem is that the sofa is a sleeper sofa so it's REALLY heavy, and nearly impossible to move to get to the stand.
