    Thanks, woodworking is all about the tools and the finish. Now if I can get my coral to match their enclosure it will be a good project.


    Thanks, appreciate the compliment

    Thanks, my LFS has a pretty good selection and these were all things I wanted to add. I have 10 higher end acro frags coming on Tuesday so I’m pretty excited about that

    I don’t have a thread for this but here is my work tank, it’s a little small for the maroon but he was really tiny when he went in and everyone in the office loves feeding him so I may need to upgrade the tank as they won’t let me replace him

    It loves it, been up for about 6 months now with just a heater the stock return pump and media. I pull cheato about once every 2 weeks and add water for evaporation (just filtered water from our kitchen water dispenser) I haven’t done a water change and cleaning the front glass mainly to keep the Xenia off it (as you can see I’m failing on the one side) I don’t do anything else

    I don’t envy you on the moving of wires. One tip: do it tidy the first time when you move the wiring over with some cable management. I rushed on mine and now I have a rats nest to untangle and work around while I do cable management lol. Loving how your tank is coming out. Gorgeous job on the woodwork and display of the tablet.

    Yep making the wire mess easier to work with is my goal. I have wire channels to run everything and I’m labeling everything as well to make things easier. I got everything except the head unit for the apex moved. I saved it for lost since I want to calibrate all my probes at the same time.

    Thanks the goal was to clean up the mess of controllers sitting on the end table and I’m happy with how it came out. Here is a couple shots with everything but the apex head unit in it. I still need to do a little cord management and I’m waiting for 4 more low profile extension cords to come so I can finish the plugs from the eb8 and eb832

    Thanks, I asked the seller to surprise me and I got almost twice the value of what I paid and they are huge frags

    Thanks, It’s time to let it just sit back and mature now

    Thanks, I’m pretty excited about how it all came out

    I cleaned up some wires today

    I also replaced the power bricks and aquabus cables on my 2 DOS’s with 1 link cables (I didn’t like that the power plug could come out of the dos and you would never know it as fusion would look like it is still dosing) there is also an extension cable for my gyre)
