Another newbie here

The glue is drying on my sump's bubble trap, my overflow box is hanging from the tank, and my other equipment is in transit.

In other words, my house is a mess and I can't wait to get started.

I've been keeping myself busy with research and virtual shopping for things, including the actual purchases mentioned above.

My problem is that by the time everything is ready, it will be so close to my 1-week vacation in Feb that I will not be able to set up until I return (I don't want to leave the tank in someone else's hands mid-cycle).

That will mean that I will have everything ready to go, but the tank will have to just sit there, empty for 2-3 weeks until I depart.

Today I'm going to start to build a couple of PVC spports for my rock work. I'll post photos if it looks half-way decent.

Eventually, I'll have pics posted here:

ciao.
