great stuff!

only might add, sort of a "nit pick" would be, cram something between your overflow box and the tank wall to make the box more level... should help your drains operate more efficiently and quietly

ya i was using one of the sprayers that you can put on your shower that has the long hoses with two of the siphons on and it could not keep up with them so im hoping i will be able to move a lot of water
that is a good idea maybe some shims or i have some leftover acrylic and i could just use small spots of silicon to hold em in place. dang i forgot to take pics of my room..
well we got it sealed in dry and put in the ac/heating unit. still trying to find siding that matches the house though. i guess since it was built 53 years ago they dont make it anymore oh well. i promis i will get pics over the holiday though
thanks for all the help and responses

the only way my dad and i could move the tank was to build up that platform on the cart and just slide it on there. then we moved the stand and slid the tank back on it. here are the rocks and stuff

here are some pics with sand and base rock added. also finished the top so you cannot actually see in the room the facing is 4 1x8's and are a 2x4 width from each other front to back and there is 5.5 inches between up and down to allow air flow between the rooms.
