How do you learn how to do these builds and what is necessary at the larger scale? Is it from your experience with the huge display at the store and with other tanks in your past, or are there industry conferences to discuss with peers?
It must be a fun mix of anxiety and exciting to work on and see these builds progress. Thanks for sharing the pics!
No problem! Glad you enjoy the pics. I’ll post more as soon as these projects progress some more. At this stage, they are roughly only 50% done so still long way to go.
To answer your first question, a lot of it are based on what I’ve learned from building Neptune 2.0. A quarter of it are based on what I’ve learned from my past life as a test engineer. The rest came from a lot of research based on what the industry has adopted. And some I had to really talk to a lot of people in order to come up with answer. But that is the best part, learning new things and opening new possibilities. At the end, the biggest driven factor in these projects is that it is someone’s dream that I am helping to fulfill so that is a really humbling experience and blessed to be a part of.
That dead coral skeleton is worth its weight in gold. I had Eric pick up a whole bag of it from you a month or so ago. How many of those bags do you have left?You can sleep on it, yes. A little hard for my taste but I think the corals will like it better as their bed...
Great for your back if you sleep on it right I hear too!
It’s also great in a cup for getting mushrooms to attach, better than other types of rubble I’ve tried
