Yours looks awesome though, DEF something Id actually pay for!

If your decide to make a thread let me know, I'd be interested in following . Actually I was thinking about making a little summer business out of it. Maybe find some people that want one and give them different design options , I'm not sure yet there's to many variables I haven't thought out yet :p

So my killie survived the 24 hour test ph is down to 7.2 and I am fully leached. Will start putting sand in today and get the water fall to work. Tank should be fully set up next week other then stock. So far all I have going into the tank is one golden killie and MAYBE a blue crayfish. Any stocking ideas are welcome
