Wow, that's all I can say. It's going to really look spectacular after it's had a couple years to grow in.
I've been pretty good about keeping a water volumn count everytime we've added equipment. Granted it will still always only be a tentative number, but I'm dosing using 550US GAL as our water voumn for now. You're right, its a challenge to dose correctly, lots of testing and tweaking. Its getting there, but its really tedious. It will pay off though!
It's a big system and with that much water, it must be quite challenging to dose correctly and adequately even with a low bio-load. The stand looks nice.
Looking good. It's impressive now, will really look awesome with livestock.
I really like the upright plastic cabinets that Lowes sells. I don't have a fish room, but the one in my shop is holding up well. I used a partical board one to hide my sump and store all my equipment for a couple years, but the mositure took it's tole on that.
Congratulations on getting the beast running at last.
Yes, I'm seeing water in your tank at last!!! How's that odd glass box working out in the back left?
Shelves & clear plastic bins are both good, and a spot to have handy towels is important to catch those drips.
Wow! Ten gallons of water a day?! My ro container only holds 7 gallons! That would make me crazy doing that manually every day! But it must be paying off because it looks nice!
Awesome. Can't wait to see it with livestock, going to spectacular.
I like it Very Much
Kilz makes a primer they recommend using on bare wood to seal it before the final color coat.
Thanks for trying to fix it!
I love looking at Kickstarter for ideas, it really gets the creativity flowing. You should try it! I have a project I'm working on that I think I might like to try crowdsourcing with.
Well, I tried to fix the embedding code, but it only looks right in the editor. Once saved, it didn't work. That's a squirrelly site to grab code from, unfortunately. Getting just the video URL address and putting it in the Video brackets didn't work.
Nifty idea, and look at how much was pledged vs what they wanted up front. I need to get something on that site, it seems.
Wow......very cool. They need to mount the camera on that Sea Turtle and let him do the mapping! A 100 years or more of mapping!
Cool! Now I don't have to travel or get a dive rating, I can just sit home on my computer.
Seriously though, very cool.
Thanks for finding this, it's pretty amazing!
It embedded fine. You just can't tell with Preview-mode. Paste in the Long URL of the video in the Video Clip icon's window, and when you submit, it shows up correctly & viewable.

If you can't get Coralvue to send it north of the border try http://premiumaquatics.com/store/merchant.mvc they have a wide range of pumps and that is how I replaced my pump about a week ago.
It was just plywood, a length that was left over from an older project actually. The wood just kept sucking the paint in over and over. You'd put your coats on, it'd look great, it'd dry, and then you'd start to see some of the crazy absorption. Some wood got 5 coats, some got 6 over about two weeks. I've never previously used Kilz on wood, just on drywall, so I'm really not sure if this is normal or not, but it does kind of fall in line with what I saw when I re-finished my kitchen this summer.
I'll get in touch with Coralvue and maybe they can point me to someone who can ship north of the border. Thanks!
