    Here are some pics from a few minutes ago. I had to get some posted while it's still a garage. All the ugly shelves are coming down, lol. ;)

    Here's the 90 gallon we just picked up. We'll eventually combine all our SW tanks into this one.

    And here is the french door that is going in the new wall.

    Construction starts around 8 AM tomorrow! I'll be posting plenty of updates... I'm so excited! ;D

    No, we'll be using a Python from the utility sink, at least for now. There is also going to be a place run off the utility sink to hook up an RO/DI unit. I am unemployed so I will have plenty of time to look after all our animals, plenty of time for water changes. Hopefully our business will grow quickly and become a full time job. I'm really hopeful and ready for the challenge. :)

    That garage looks vaguely familiar, but I've never seen it empty;)

    I'm so glad your dream is finally coming true for both of you:;hug2
