So after crying for 3 days my husband found me a replacement tank .
It looks rough I know... but a good vinegar wash and elbow grease will fix that right up.
It was water tested for 3 days so far so good! Its and Oceanic 210 gal tank 7x2x2 with starfire glass. It has some scratches more than I would like but at this point I'd rather have a tank with a few scratches over not having a tank at all... A friend mentioned there was something I could use to polish the superficial ones out I might explore that thought a little more. I'm a bit anal and just one scratch will drive me to drink
The wall in the fish room was painted
Two coats... hmm the color is not this dark in person Note to self buy a good camera soon... The yellow walls will be gone by hopefully this weekend. What color will they be?? haha haven't figured that out yet!
Finally the sump has been dropped into the stand.
It took 5 strong men to get it in there! I was too busy biting my nails and praying to the fish tank gods nothing went wrong to take pics... but just imagine a bunch of guys hee-hawing...
I decided to line the bottom of the stand with shower pan liner in case of any spills (fellow reefers idea)... If I mess up the floors I'm a dead woman!
I plan on using the 3 holes in the tank as drains and bring my returns up the back of the tank.
Now to brain storm on some plumbing ideas...
