    Default Chuck's 75g Peninsula

    Well work has begun on the latest project. The 75g peninsula style tank will be the display piece in my living room. I'm currently working on the stand that I am building and a canopy will be added. Her's a couple progress pics of it where it will most likely be set up. Ignore the mess, the loveseat will be going where my current tank is and I haven't finished cleaning up after moving.

    It looks like you are off to a good start. I am looking forward to what you come up with, I like the peninsula style tank.
    The cats are still hanging together.

    Yeah they are. Unfortunately I had to get rid of one of the rescues because she was peeing on stuff.

    Didn't get much done this weekend on the build. I did get the back painted black and also painted the overflow black because I thought the gray would look weird with a black background. I also siliconed the overflow into place. Its starting to look good.

    Spent the day transferring over the old tank into the new. Went pretty smooth.
