    I really appreciate that! It's a little hard to see but those armor of gods you sent me are really taking off. They've grown like crazy. I don't know how they haven't spread to the rock yet. There's like 25+ on that little frag still lol.

    Got the tank moved to the new apartment finally. Only took me about 1947294 hours but that's okay. Nothing has died yet (knock on wood). The fish and coral are happy in the trash can for now so that's where they will stay because I am too tired to mess with that stuff any more lol.

    On another note, I got my custom tank ordered so it should be done in a week. They claim it takes a month for the silicone to dry before you put water in it even though I've read and everyone says 48 hours......but it's no big deal. I'm in no rush to get water in it just yet. Still gotta build the stand and figure out how I want to mount the lights over the tank.

    Got everything back up and running. Going to buy some 2x4's tomorrow and make something to hold the lights over the tank temporarily.

    It's nice! Slowly getting things to the way I like them but it will all come together eventually.

    Went and picked up the new tank today from glass cages and let me say I'm impressed. Seems like a sturdy tank for the price and the seams are super clean. Going to try and get the stand built some this weekend and the back and bottom of the tank painted. Hopefully I can get it filled up with water in a couple weeks.

    Finally got around to painting the back of the glass. Wasn't able to paint the bottom glass though. Hopefully I'll have time this week to do it.

    Finally got around to making the stand. Still have to add side pieces, trim, plywood on top and possibly bottom, and stain.

    Looking good. Don't feel bad, my current build took a year to finish back in 14-15.

    Haha I was kind of procrastinating on building the stand for awhile because I didn't think it was going to come out right. I had to force myself to buy the materials and do it yesterday and today lol.

    I hear you. My first stand I built was in the early nineties and was a little nerve racking. Since then three stands and a couple canopies, each time got better and better. Just got to go for it!
