Ok update time

Decided i wanted to paint the stand black, just finished that lol, Now just waiting for it to dry so that the stand/tank can be placed in the new spot (which is all ready and waiting). The new tanks that will be going underneath will hopefully be finalized this week also

On a roll now lol

*In regards to its new spot - I've decided to move it due to the weight that will be on the floor along the wall it was sitting. There is another large tank beside it there and their combined weight would be close to 1 ton, makes me nervous on floor boards. So to give me piece of mind, it is moving to another part of the house.

Started adding a bit of decor, wont be very much. Will be adding some plants to this at some stage. Added about 30-40 endlers and about 10 cherry shrimp (yep these will become food for the final inhabitants

The new tanks underneath


I priced a new canister for this today, pricey, but more than able to do the job. Just gotta save up the pennies to buy it lol

Its not paint, its cement oxides (you put it into the render mix itself, you can also use it to 'paint' highlights)
