Awesome!!! That whole thing must have been super frustrating. All I can think is thank goodness it was a smaller tank and it was a slow drip!! Mine are all fine but I like have nightmares of it happening to my 55

I think that's the Frappacino talking.
Looks good. And "coasters" are a nice touch. Fingers crossed that it stays water tight.
What were planning on putting in this tank?

Looks nice!

I've got to ask - there were posts about an original slate bottom. Is that slate as the rock or meaning something else?

The older metaframes had slate bottoms as in the rock.

Thanks! Sounds nice.

My goodness, I know slate is flat but that seems tricky to get the glass and slate to line up for glueing? Wondering if that caused any issues.
