Edmonton : Thanks for feeling along with me. What made me really mad is that this contractor is referral by the Chicago Council of carpentry. I would think that a reputable council like this would use good contractor and union. Turn out that this contractor does not even have a permanent residency!!
It is as good as me going down the street and randomly hire someone!! I blamed myself for trusting the Chicago council of carpentry and never double check. We file a complaint in BBB against the council and the contractors. Obviously, I don't see any way in recovering my losses
I am glad that everything is behind me, now I can't wait to get this bad boy up and running with water
My wife is nagging me to put fishes in NOW.
swissfish: Run 220V electrical?? Are you saying down convert it back to 110V after that. I heard this waste electricity because of the efficiency loss in the transformer.
nodoubt471: I like the starboard setup as well. My existing tank running sandbed is a hassle to maintain (just my opinion) and does not look as clean as starboard. I am using the black starboard. Have not decided my livestock yet. Most likely going with SPS
. Will also move my existing livestock in my 46g tank to this setup as well.
Rocket: Starboard is the marine board that they use in boats. Something like cutting board. I will be using it for my "sandbed". So instead of sandbed, it will just be 2 slate of starboards join together on my tank bottom. The nice thing about marine board is that it is UV
resistant, so will not turn yellow over time. But anyway, it will eventually covered with Corraline.
