I think you're about 310 miles south of me.

That would be quite the commute unless I slept in one of your barns.

It would be a total bucket list things to learn how to build a tank.
for sure. we can put you up in an RV on the pond. Fun place!

I do fish frequently!
I'll bet there's some good catfish in those ponds. We had a 5 acre farm pond growing up. Whenever we go fishing table rock lake or lake of the Ozarks, We bring the good catfish back in the live well and release them into the pond. Too much fun

Saturday we didn't feel like it, so we didn't work on the panoramareef.
Sunday, September 12, 2021 - #panoramareef section2 stand finished
The day started with cutting away the excess silicone sealant from aquarium1.
The stand of section2 was bolted to the back wall, after which it was extended from 4 to 5 metres. For this, the KHD setup of the 1200L reef had to be moved and an end support had to be made.

Sunday, september 11, 2021 - moving the #butterflyreef
There was no enough space to build the #panoramareef tanksection2, so the butterflyreef needed to move.
All the electric wiring of the #DSRreef1200 was in the cabinet below, so that needed rewiring.
The tank was emptied down to 10cm, moved , refilled, replumbed and rewired to make it operational again.

Is 10mm glass strong enough for that amount of water pressure?? Looks amazing btw
No problem for this size and hight iusing braces. Thanks!

Removed the wall unit to make room for a 120x100 pallet box that will serve as a temporary storage for coral and fish from the #EZ550HYB system. This is going out and in its place comes the old 1200litre tank which I will probably set up as a primary fish tank. The idea is to use less lighting than is normally required for a reef aquarium, so keeping this tank is not a big expense. I wonder how long I will be able to keep this up...

Wednesday, 15 September 2021 #panoramareef - drilling 4 holes. Today the diamond glass drills finally arrived. I was waiting to be able to continue. First I had to make a drilling template from plywood and mount it in the right place. To allow fish to swim back and forth from section1 to section2, I made two 100mm holes to connect the aquariums. For this, I had to drill four 100mm holes in 10mm glass. It took me 2 hours because I was too careful. Once I got the hang of it, it was 10-15 minutes per hole.
After alignment, I drilled the end of section 2 flat on the table
The next step is to prepare the glass to seal section 2.

Thursday, september 23, 2021 - placing the bracing for section2/3
The job started with removing all help tools used for supporting and aligning of the glas panels.
Cutting and cleaning the bracings, placing the clamps to align the bracing and than glueing them.
That's a lot of clamps and siliconekit......

Sealing the two 100mm holes connecting section1 to section 2/3
Placed 2 extra support strips between the front/rear bracing.
Attempting to cut the four 55cm vertical bracing strips for application at the seem of section 2/3.
This failed misserably, so i called it the day.
We went out for dinner to celabrate my wife birthday with my 2 kids. My daughter came home from groningen for the occasion.

Saterday, september 25, 2021 - #panoramareef - last tasks before filling the tank
Finally i manage to cut the 55cm strips and glued them. The separationrack fits perfectly inbetween the seam.
Next was drilling two 55mm holes to place the tank connectors. These will be used as surface skimmers. I will probably be using a XS sump for this purpose
I'am not a real fan of these tank connectors, so i took extra precaution by glueing them.
The plumbing will be simpel an minimal.

Now wait a few days for the silicone to cure and do a fill test.
