Emeritus Revenio v.5.0.150INT
Mancave Addition


Hello R2R,

I'm not new to the hobby, started around 2012, but reluctantly I had to pull away from it for personal reasons. This will be my "Emeritus Revenio" build thread. Things always have a way of working themselves out, sometimes however they favor you and sometimes they don’t. I feel I’ve been blessed in this life to have a great partner and it's in no small part because of her that I'm LEAPING down the rabbit hole again! That said, she has greenlit this new journey that I’m about to share with everyone here. The location where the "the goodies" below are sitting is actually where the tank will be located.

Let the demolition begin! I have to rip out the floor, level the concrete, and build it up for tile work :eek:.

I deeply enjoy aqua-scaping, I don’t know, maybe it’s the brutality of a chisel and a hammer breaking the rock apart and then being able to create something, I feel, is more natural looking and not just a stacked pile of boulders.

The only thing left is a small island in the center but that’s easy enough.

Constructive critiques are always welcome!

Sometimes it’s all about the little things...
Testing the UV, the build quality on this thing is exceptional!

Went with this particular UV light for a couple different reasons, 1: the built-in countdown timer for lamp replacement and 2: it uses an amalgam UV bulb as opposed to standard non-amalgam for (supposedly) longer life span and higher output.
