That's like origami but with plastic. Excellent detailing!

I'm finally back working on the tank again and it looks like Photo Bucket has decided to break all my images. So here's a link to the actual Photo Bucket album with all the images posted thought-out this thread: http://s1055.photobucket.com/user/Ha...Tank%20Journal

Also in case Google ever decides to mess things up, here's a link to some of the images that are hosted on Google Photos: https://goo.gl/photos/JD6FFTR8btgsSPmV7

Thanks,
Harry

Links work here Yes, photobucket is creating a lot of pain. What stage is the project at now?

I ran the various wires behind the tank and into the stand finally. Had to create this triple extension cord setup since none of the pump cords were long enough:



Here's it mounted in the stand:





Here's a quick shot of the wire setup:





I'm currently working on the light mount and wiring and once that is done the tank finally moves into place permanently and the focus shifts to the fish room.

Thanks,
Harry

Nice neat wire work there, eh Delapool? Good job Harry. Mine looks like an electrical nightmare but was recently discussing wire organization with Delapool

That is coming up on my list of things to do very soon.

Lol - that looks great work and so organised (unlike the cords behind mine which have bred faster than mollies over time).

Finally finished the electrical in the fish room. Here's the GFCI box that distributes electricity to the rest of the fish room. It's amazing how cramped it can be and still be to code:



And here's the rest of the switches, outlets, and communication ports:



All done:



Also did some work on the lights mount over the tank. Got a pair of Gieseman brackets cheap on eBay. Only problem was that there were no studs were I needed them so I took some of the white oak flooring I used for other stuff before, cut it to size, stained it, urethaned it, and attached the brackets to it. Here's the whole thing getting attached to the wall behind the tank and also with one of the lights mounted temporarily:





Also started putting up the controls for the lights on the side of the stand:





Thank for following,
Harry

We may not even have water by the time this tank is ready for fish

Looks like you are Plugging along (pun intended) and keeping things very neat and sharp in the build.

Continuing to be a very nice job you are doing on the fish room. Congrats on figuring a good solution to the lighting bracket and should not be finding half of it laying in the tank one day.

Nah, I'm just kidding. I only wish I had taken more time with some of my setups. Once it's filled it becomes 9000 times harder to make changes.

I had some time to organize all of the cables in the stand and finish wiring everything up in the living room:





Also connected the unions using a liberal amount of lubricant for the o-rings:



So the tank is finally pushed back into place:



Now all the attention turns to the fish room.

Thanks,
Harry

I'm currently posting updates about this tank build on a few forums but I've decided to consolidate. Partly because I'm slowly fixing all of the broken Photobucket images and it's a lot of extra work to fix them in multiple locations. So going forwards if you'd like to continue tagging along please follow this thread on Planted Tank:

http://www.plantedtank.net/forums/sh...d.php?t=826569

Thanks,
Harry
