    I love looking at DIY threads, but there are so many of them. I have made an attempt to index a few of them. I got about 30 pages into this before my fingers cramped up. Please, if you know of any threads that are not included here, please add them to this thread and I will try to keep it updated.

    Nice post, and a good idea! I think someone just picked up about 250 points. ;)

    This isdefinity a good idea. It also reminds me that I should probably update my skimmer thread, lol.

    Lol, the problem is you probably posted 30 times in the time it took me to write this.

    Ha! Man I hope you're right about that. It's giving me a headache just trying to keep up;)

    Question... does the link have to be from this forum or can it be from another?

    It can be in another if it wasn't moved to this section, absolutely.

    I'm not sure about hyperlinking to another site. I have added it but will not hesitate to remove it if I get yelled at!

    This will be so helpful--once I know enough to understand what the category labels mean! I'm just starting to learn so that I can set up a tank in a year or two. It will need to be low budget, so lots of DIY. Besides, I really like the feeling of learning and applying something news, and the good Delong I get whenever I look at or tinker with it. Much more fun than buying something finished, and not really knowing how to make adjustments.

    I am not sure if forum format posts a easy to maintain an index like that. If this is a google doc or something, it will be easier to collaboratively update it. And may be then weekly/monthly we can copy over the content to a dedicated DIY index post in the forum.
    Otherwise maintaining such an index will become hard overtime

    Kudos for getting so many posts grouped,
    thank you for sharing
