Kenn's 75g Build
« on: July 21, 2013, 14:59:54 »
I'm Back !!!

After a long time, they have opened my cage door and let me into my playground (garage). I've spent the last few days building the frame for my 75g and today I am going to drill the tank. My first time drilling glass  :o so this should be fun  :not:

I just wanted to say thanks to all of you that have kept in touch while I was out of the game. It's been tough, but things are looking up.

I am looking forward to being back in the discussions here at Ohio Reef.

I've noticed "dead" areas in the past next to overflow boxes close to the corner... Thats why I posed my question. Maybe if I placed it 6" or so from the corner? it's a very small dimension box I got from Glassholes.

In the center, you'll get 2 dead areas if you do a full height box.   You don't have to do an overflow box.   Look at Lazy's build.

Well.. as you can see from the time stamp of the last post "Life happens" took a toll on the 75g build :(

But, this year has been physically better for me. As a result, things got pulled out of storage and supplies as well as equipment were restocked and updated.

This is the trial fit just to see if the location will work before we commit with a filled tank.It sure is helpful to have 2 teenage sons around to help with the setup :)

I will be putting a skin on the stand this week. I have been creating an aquascape for it over the past few months. Ran out of dry rock rubble so I have to order that this weekend so I can complete that little part of the project.

I've been keeping a 20g Long up and running to keep my sanity :) It's been doing so fantastic that I hesitate to mention it for fear of jinxing the whole thing. If you have seen any of the pictures I have been posting, all of the frags/Coral were grown out in the 20g. Anyway, after the 75g cycles, the contents of the 20g will make the long journey (14 feet) to its new home.
