    I really like the dimension on this tank. How did you end up repairing the tank? The rock work from Jesster is amazing.

    I took off the inside silicon and reseal it. Then i remove the old glue that fix the crack on the top conner and re-glued it. I planned to install starphire glass Euro brace but end it do acrylic Euro brace. I mess up a little bit when install Euro brace but able to fix it. I will have an up close picture when the tank inside the house. Tank had been water test for few weeks.

    Hey Johnny, price is very reasonable. Jesster is super nice person too work with. In my case, he can turn around quick and able to drop off. Very happy with the rock scape.

    Have some free time today, make the canopy and the adjustable Radion light rail. This ligh rail will allow me easily adjust the light from left to right and spin the light around if have too. Im still thinking on how to make the rail to adjust low and high. Any idea are welcome.
