  1. Well here it is everything working fish in ,what I wanted to keep and a few new things .whats left to do is set up the doses and refinish the wood around the base of the tank. Clean up wires and general area. I love the look of an underwater jetty and the way the water moving first in a clockwise direction than reversing to counterclockwise . When feeding you can see the pattern as the floating bits are chased by hungry fish but than agin when are they not hungry. Looking for a few new things to add so I’m saving my penny’s so I can get lots of 2$ frags lol thanks for watching Charlie
  2. Ok sorry for the long delay with LAS ( lazy ass syndrome) 3 trips. Macna and hiking all over Arizona , and Grand Canyon with Rick,Lisa ,Matt and heather, and robin. working and a general dred of what I have to do !. I’ve gotten started on polishing the eching from the run away Coraline alge. A word to the wise don;t let it get this bad ! After 20 mins of sanding with 400 grit sand paper then 20 mins polishing with cerium oxide I have clear peach about the size of a small dinner plate

The only water on the floor is my splashes robin likes that!
  5. no i had the pipes on the bottom but these had to cross over each other so as to move the water around the way i wanted it to go . they are part of the alternating closed loop i set up. it switches form one side to the other as if a change it is a tidal flow charlie
