How is it going with the tank room doors? Did you put weather stripping around them?

Bax- Thanks.

ssbreef- You and me both. I will be happy when all the reactors and lights are going. Fininshed will be probally when I am ready for a new house. HAHAHAH. Then it it will be time for a nice size something like you were talking about for you next build.

J - Welcome. This weekend I was planning on doing some trim work. I havent hooked up the AC vent in the room yet but next time I am in the attic it is on my list. On the french doors they are just going to be trimed out and thats it. There will be a little gap at the bottom of the door. The room is not completly sealded from the rest of the house. I do have a ceiling fan to put in the middle of the office. I returned my exhaust fan for above the tank. It was a little too small. Down the line I will gte a bigger one for it. This summer when all the lights are on and its summer time I will most likely need it to help with the heat.

I already had a little mini cycle a couple weeks back but my nitrates are good as of a week or so ago. My calcium and ph were ok. I really ned to do some new test and few others. All I have in thank is some fish so nothing is depleting anything as of yet. I am going to be connecting my 75 fuge it has been filled witha couple maxi jets and 40lbs live sand mixed with 300lbs play sand. I have a angel and a trigger in there from my old FO tank. I hope it doesnt make to much of a big affect all my fish are fat and happy.

Hopefully when I get my lights up I can get some coarline growth on my rocks. I have some live mixed in with some dead. For flow all I have is my dart on an OM4 with a couple Koraline 4 pumps so far.

I will get some updates this weekend with some pics.

O.K. Eric. I see a problem here.

Between the sport bike, monster truck, and your fish tank, you will never be able to get your kids to leave the house.

Congrats on your boy. Cute little guy!

Ryan.

frag swaps are great. Just be damn sure to have a QT set up with skimming, light and proper water parameters. Get your inbound system together for inspection, dipping, and QT. You have to be very careful about red bugs and AEFW when getting frags at a swap.
