well its my old 125 that i attempted to reseal and it failed again, so while having a dicussion with a friend, the idea of a frag tank came up but one of the downsides to using it as a frag tank was the height of the tank. thats when my friend shared the following genius idea. mask off an appropriate line on the tank (at whatever height i want). ill remove the silicone seals down to the cut line, then proceed to use his diamond-tipped blade on his dremel to cut the tank. i think that im either going to cut both bulkheads out and seal them or do a custom acrylic drain setup, idk about that aspect yet. its really an idea that i should of come up with a LONG time ago. i have spare powerheads, and i can easily buy a mag drive pump to get flow. im getting ready to leave work now so onc e i get home and cleaned up, im going to attempt to draw up some sort of setup designs. would really like to do a motorize rail lighting setup but idk. well anyways im off to start a new thread!!

Well that is very interesting. I like it. What are you going to put over the new lip to cover the sharp edges?

update: the 125 seems to be responding well to the switch to weekly water changes. going to do a full test tonight of all the params and see where we are at. struck a deal with the misses that since im willing to not spend insane money on Radions or Ai Hydras, ill get the Taos and in return i can get the apex controller in january!! the mandarin has taken to pellets (finally) so heres to hoping. the purple tang has officially developed a pot belly (to match the Lt. tangs) and the royal gramma seems to be as grumpy as ever. the only thing im not understanding is the Niger trigger is still being extremely shy and hiding. hes eating and its been prob 2-3 weeks since the initial onset of symptoms, however hes got a belly and is still chasing and eating food....who knows. hopefully i can get a photo shoot in tonight when i get home from work
