Ok my 4 and a half sheets of half inch acrylic are in....finally. I ordered scratched sheets to save money nod they look good each has some scratches but all are shallow and will buff out fine saved about a third of the cost on the sheets. Making another 500 8x4x2 one sheet each for the top and bottom. One sheet ripped in half long for the sides another half for the ends and scrap pieces for the overflows. Will try to document as I go. I will start when the temp is below 100.. :S

I can't be the only person on this site that WOULD LOVE to see a video of all your tanks, ponds, and setups. Hook us up Tom so we all can dream and have hope. B)

Yeah, you need to document this, T.

THOSE WHO REFUSE KNOWLEDGE ARE DOOMED TO FAIL.

WATER CHANGES ARE THE LIFEBLOOD OF THIS HOBBY. IF YOU DON'T BELIEVE SO OR SIMPLY DON'T FEEL LIKE DOING THEM, RE-HOME YOUR FISH, SELL YOUR AQUARIUM & FIND ANOTHER HOBBY, AS YOU WILL FAIL UTTERLY, COMPLETELY, & MISERABLY.
