Meredith, Did you figure out how to set that in the wall this is what I did.
Thanks!! I'm pretty sure I have, but we are still waiting on the stand to be completed and the tank to arrive before we open up the wall. Thanks for the pictures, I'll be sure to run them by my husband so he has more ideas as backup.
Mine doesn't sit totally flush, the drywall sits on top of the tank, I did this so I could seal off the garage from the house with a fat bead of silicon and also this way I could get my Stone under my water line and a no show with the seams and what not. Thanks For your help also!
It looks fantastic! I'm wanting mine to look like a framed picture on the wall, but I'm flexible depending on what we are capable of. I can't even explain plan A for you, but I'll take plenty of pictures when we start!
Not much is happening right now. A few snags with getting the tank ordered that is mainly attributed with my manager's memory lol. I'm paying for the tank tomorrow and picking up the stand on sunday. The tank will be here wednesday (I'll nag the heck out of him to be sure of it) We did some measuring and moving around. This is where the tank will be. We are planning to paint after we get the 75 out of the living room and can get all the walls.
That's gonna be cool!
Yay-aaa! lol It feels like it's taking FOREVER to get anything done on this, but I just have to keep telling myself that things are getting done.
I like it with just the blue tape. Just draw some fish in there
Love the idea! Might be hard to get the fish food to stick to the wall though. Wouldn't want the drawings to starve.
Yall are funny! Can you imagine black worms stuck to the wall?! Gross!
We have a stand!!! To give you an idea on size, that chair there is not a tiny office chair. The stand is 40 inches tall and 6 feet long. The tank has been paid for and should ACTUALLY come in on Wednesday! I'm trying to work a deal with our service manager to have them deliver it to my house. We will just have to see what happens with that.
It won't be long before I have to start a new thread! Oh my goodness, it's getting REAL!
Can't wait to see it.
Man U can't just keep a tank
Nope! I just gotta keep getting bigger! Though, I've been threatened that I better keep this one for at least two years before I think about doing anything else. lol We'll just have to see about that too.
I move on Friday.
The original plan was to upgrade to my 180 during the move but things have changed got a more expensive house and we have to be out and in within a day so I'm setting up my 90 and then in a month or two going for a 210 gallon aqueon in wall (two walls) and can't wait wish u the best of luck
O and I have a question for u
Boy!! Good luck with your moves! What's the question?
It's about the move and moving a cleaner shrimp that just molted that is in my display tank that is about 28 days fallow(I kept adding frags from the original follow period) into the qt tank that is now disease free. Should I keep the cleaner shrimp in the display or would it be alright to put it in the qt tank now without copper till December 15th
I would be nervous to put the cleaner shrimp into a QT that had copper in it. Are you saying that you have corals in that same QT right now? If so, and they are doing fine, then I'd be tempted to say it's fine. Just keep running carbon in there.
Ok my display tank has been fallow with the cleaner shrimp for 21 days. My qt tank has been clean of copper for about a month and a half. Since I have no patience I bought some corals and put some live rock in my display extending the fallow period on the display tank that my cleaner shrimp is in. I'm asking do you think if during the move if I put the cleaner shrimp from my display tank into my qt tank with the fish that there would be a problem or should I just keep him in the display tank?
I just realized this isn't actually your build thread! You are probably a bit late on a build thread since.. oh, I don't know... you are already building it????
