    Default FiRe's 29g Biocube Build Thread!

    Since I have been working so much in the office I never get to see my tank

    so I am in tank withdrawl, and after getting bits and pieces from everyone I am starting to put it together.



    Step 1 was cleaning off all the coraline from the glass. (btw that was tons of funnnn)

    Step 2. was Rockwork. I really thought I was going to spend a month doing it but I got some AWESOME rock from Uberfrags HQ so me and Jackie Blue spent the day together and played legos with it and glued it down. In another 3 hours (I think) it should be fully cured so I can give you guys a dry sneak peak at it.

    Step 3. ????

    Step 4. Is going to be the creation of a stand for the office. So far I am Quuuuite pleased with my ideas as it was supposed to be done with the big tank but I backed off from doing it. I am def going to do them in this tank, surprise to come later.

    Step 5. Stain and pain and perform awesome stuffs.

    Step 6. Complete LED fixture built from components purchased from http://www.ReefLedLights.com


    Step 7. Brackets to mount light to stand.

    Step 8. Get Saphire skimmer running, (Picking up from Cet98, Danke!)

    Step 9. Begin cycling rock. I may actually start cycling rock in the 120g

    Step 10. Add Caribsea Special sand. Seed a handful from 120g.

    Step 11. Figure out what to put in the tank.

    Used Loctite marine epoxy to get the rocks to attach to eachother. It states on the packaging not for use in aquarium but its the third time I have used it now.

    step 5 is looking like the best step lol...but in all seriousness looks like a good start
    It takes a long long time to build a coral reef. Step by step the reefs survive on partnerships. And the most important partners are you and I.

    I told you NOT to take my picture-just for that you can move your tank yourself,. Just don't drop it because it's looking pretty sweeet with those new lights
