Here are some early pics of the tank

I got the tank late Tuesday evening and that puppy was heavy!!! It is also bigger than I expected. Lee-Mar did an awesome job and it was worth the wait.

You can also see pics of the cut pad from my previous post. So, far everything is working out as expected.

This rubber matting stinks!

...literally, the rubber matting the stand builder supplied with the stand emits a strong "rubber" smell. So strong we had to open the windows downstairs.

Thanks to user "naterealbig" I was able to find the matting in the pic above and cut it to size. The matting is made by "Best-Step" and sold at Sears and commonly used for garage flooring. It's good stuff. The good...

Goin' Glass Baby!!!

I am in the process of upgrading from an acrylic tank to a Lee-Mar 167g (62x26x24) three sided eurobraced starphire tank. I am really excited about the build as it gives me the option to "start fresh" and apply what I have learned over the past year in my experiences with my current 120g setup.

Given my travel schedule my updates will be very sporadic. I usually have access to a computer when in the field so I will update this blog as the opportunity presents itself....
