fish day was a bust. didn't see anything that really stood out except a decent yellow-belly regal tang..... but considering we have 3 tangs already that was a no. also because we have a coral banded shrimp, we cant get other shrimp...(wth) so now we have to decide if we want to just keep the coral banded or move him and get other shrimp. leaning towards moving the coral banded into the refugium until we get a nano tank started. because we want to add 2-3 cleaner shrimp into the tank. decisions decisions. oh not to mention next weekend is prob going to be a weekend full of tank work.... ill need to make a few trips to HD and get the necessary wood to build my freestanding canopies (one small one for each fixture) also I came up with a what I feel is a exceptionally well-thought out canopy design that will hide the power cables. heck I may start building the canopies this weekend....who knows. going to hit up another lfs and see if we come home with anything.

heres a pic to show the hinges, however they are being swapped out mainly because they dont allow the frames to sit flush against the wall brace.


third pic is with one screwed to the wall brace.


I need to stop at the hardware store tomorrow night and pick up new hinges, then i have to drill a hole in the back board of each frame to run the cables through. attempting to a completely 100% wireless look to the tank. so that way when im sitting on my couch across the room, there wont be any wires visible.
tomorrow is going to be a huge day! once i get home im going to put another coat of poly stain on the pieces, also im hoping that i can order my controller and led panels tomorrow while im at work. ive already designated next weekend as a strictly "fish tank update" weekend! oh and i may order another wp40...not sure.
