    no doubt:mrgreen:...
    I think i'm going to work on the background 1st..Then concentrate on the stand..not going to rush it..With 3 kids its tough to do projects anyway.Finally finished the cedar house shutters,only took a month and half:mrgreen:. I just hope its done before #4 gets here :shock:

    Number four?? Congrats!!

    And I certainly hope the trigger in question is a Niger, otherwise we're fighting.

    Ooo, and zebra eels are cool too...


    How about I do all the thinking for this tank and you get to do the work and send me the pictures. :mrgreen::mrgreen:

    For sure, that why I put mine in the basement. If I have foundation problems down there we got big problems. This looks awsome. I put 40 breeders under mine for sumps. Wish those were bigger now not much room for evap water. The 125 maybe to big but bigger is always better, right.
