When you get some algae on that background it will look awesome.

That's what I'm hoping for Hakan. The hood has 2 security lights in it made by Lights of America. They are FluoreX 6500k electronic ballast mercury vapors that give the equivalent light of 500 watts each but only use 65 watts of power each. They are slightly in the blue range with a CRI of 84.

I hope it's enough to get some algae going. I'll be doing a fishless cycle while putting together my fish list and hope to have nice beds of algae growing before I add them to the tank. redfish

You've got the wrong idea Derek. We try to buy in bulk whenever we can to save a few dollars. A case of beer will last me 3-4 weeks. My bar fly days are long over and I much prefer being sober. It would have to be a real special occasion to push the line.

I've been waiting a long time to get that shot. It's been filled for a few hours now and no leaks. Well that's not quite true. I had to reverse the gasket on one of the bulkheads that had a slight leak. After that everything outside the tank has remained dry. I'll give it a week then empty it and put the background in.

HAHA! a new TFG!

I remember that pic.

I could have but they're rather expensive here in Vegas. bounce

The view wasn't that bad. I could clearly see my 14 year old and his friend taking photos. The tank was pretty cold because I got in right after I had it almost filled up. My body was protesting.

It's been 4 days and still no leaks or wet spots. My confidence is at 99.9% that it will hold water for years to come. Today I start buttoning up some of the loose ends and hopefully by Wednesday I'll drain the tank and get the background in.

My part time work has picked up quite a bit and my Handyman business has also gotten more calls. Hopefully I can get back to it soon but right now cash generation is my top priority.
