I really liked where you were going with the tank and will try and help via hubby !!

I don't think he has been on for awhile. He has to abandon the build or else he would have posted more pics. These type of tanks are not the things that people like us keep to ourselves :lol:

Like many DIY projects money and time always is the limiting factor. He is a inspiration to those that appreciate our hobby and want to take it a step further.

Maybe instead of funneling thousands of our own dollars into our "dream" setups we should pool $2ea. into our favorite projects that are presented online?

Godd idea Huh? OK, here are the rules, I go first! :lol:

(Funny I haven't received any donations yet... Hmmm)

Not likely going to happen

Ardeus:
I try not to remember that aquarium. There's a crack somewhere under all those rocks and sand and the front glass is cracked. And I no longer live there.

So the tank on the teaser is my outdoor tank now


He has a video teaser of a series he's working on. Go over to the Aquarium Photography and Video forum for the thread and link to his video.

there was a crack in the concrete and a leak around the glass. the owner abandoned the project and moved.

disappointing, eh? was looking forward to following this build...

Hi everyone.

This was a really bad idea. I do regret it. Neither the right time, nor the right place.

The only good thing about it is that I learned to be more cautious about these things.

Meanwhile, I'm finishing a documentary series on Multies, I will start to edit the last episode next week: http://www.brotherfish.pt.to

I haven't given up on building something big. And if it ever will happen in my life, it's going to be soon.
