    Replacement tank is here. Much cleaner than the previous one.

    Who’s free tomorrow to bring the tank inside? May be around 12pm?

    That looks fantastic. Did you get the tank in? I was playing softball in SoCal.

    Wow... just realized how crappy the photos came out after being posted. They look much better on my phone.

    29 gallon Oceanic biocube. I've had it just before I ordered the tank... about 5 months or so.

    The turn around on the tank was super quick; what’s taking so long with the stand?

    I think the wood is being imported.

    Actually I think he is planning to truck things up here at once.

    Feels more like he is still growing the trees the wood is being cut from.

    Lots has happened since my last update.

    I finally finished the shed and got things situated. I also received an awesome delivery in late March from Neptune Aquatics.

    And most importantly the stand arrived and oh.. a new tank too. As the last tank did not have a couple holes missing from the top of the tank.

    At any rate, had some help from Robert to help me level the stand and install the tank.

    Now this was done April 2nd. Unfortunately nothing has been done since due to my surgery and won’t be able to do anything for another 4-6 weeks due to lifting and bending restrictions.

    That setup looks great. Can't wait until you're in better shape to get it up and running.

    Did some plumbing work today... hooked up two cor20’s in the sump. Haven’t glued things up yet, but wanted to make sure I have the distance set up coredtly. I didn’t want the cor20 exactly side by side to prevent potential siphoning or gargling effect. It shouldn’t happen, but I have seen it.

    Anyway, found this flexible spa pvc at Home Depot and guess what it works great. It can be hot glued as well.

    Next up is the plumbing for the synergy ghost overflow and the remaining return plumbing.
