Water test time. I have it filled with water now and will let it sit to confirm that it's watertight.
Only a few other things on my "To Do" list before I add substrate.
I need to buy a filter, cut and glue/silicone pieces of glass at the top access to dam the water so that the waterline can be above the top glass. Then it's just a matter of scraping the excess silicone off of the glass and stocking it.
I'm currently working on the back and hood to hide lighting and filter.
Pics follow:

Here a few pics post-op after the water dam was added. Still need to buy an AC20 but my wife wants to replace one of our 10g with this so I'm playing with the sump idea and using the 10g for that purpose. Any input?
