    So here she is. The new addition and start of MTS. This is the tank as I received it. Not the best shot. Was taken by my buddy. And I didnt bother to take one before I began. But I rinsed it with the garden hose and got near everything rinsed out. Now letting it soak over night to soften the remaining build I p hopefully before I scrub it. Will post pics of the after

    Tank is scubbed down inside. Didnt do outside yet. Now full of water leak testing to see where the leak is coming from.

    Found out where its leaking. Cut out old silicone inside of tank. Was scraping the residue when the razor broke and got my finger. Now gotta wait to finish for a day or 2

    Hope you're okay. Using razors are pretty dangerous

    Sorry about your finger!

    The best part about this tank will be the time you are putting into it. It may take you months to get everything just right (lights, choice of substrate, filter, stock, etc.), but it will be extremely rewarding when everything is as it should be! Gratz!

    Yes. All the time and patience with the planning will be worth it!
