diabeetus Posted September 6, 2013 Share Posted September 6, 2013 Hello! What is going down, fellow home dogs? It's been a while since I have been active in this amazing community; I couldn't stay away forever! This has been a long time coming. I was just waiting to move into a house before I decided to go any bigger than my nano. Well?? I recently moved into a house in NW Austin. I'm lovin it, my girlfriend loves it, my dogs..not sure of the word for it, but feeling is much more intense than love.. you know dogs.. Anyway.. I recently bought a drilled 40g breeder on craigslist. this is one of my favorite sized tanks. nice and deep. not too tall. lots of floor space (to my liking). Since the tank was drilled, I needed a sump, RIGHT?! yes! Got one. nbd. I mayd dis.. It's a basic design, but it proves worthy. That there is a mag 7 as my return. I might have to tone it down a little, but I would rather have have too much than too little in this case. Next was the stand. I love me some buildin'! I have only just finished building the skeleton. next comes the skin. Isn't that how it works? Now this is going to be somewhat of an economically friendly build since I'm a broke diabetic college student with terrible insurance. ARE WE CLEAR?! Now that we have that cleared up, here are some more plans for the tank Lagoon Themed macros (maybe some sea grass) softies and LPS 30lbs Marco Dry Rock I know this will limit my stock list a little, but one thing I do want is either a mantis (miss my old friend) or a leaf fish/angler My stock list has not been made just yet (well it has.. about 3 years ago when I first had a dedicated lagoon tank that never ended up happening..) so hang tight, yo. For lighting I purchased 2 fixtures from fishneedit. they are having a 50% off summer clearance right now. 4x39w + 2x39w fixtures. should be in next week. Here is the tank and sump on the newly built stand skeleton WARNING this is what happens when you drive with no A/C Thanks for looking! Stay tuned!
