Alright lads so it is time to start a new blog for the new tank
It is a 7x2x2 white Clearseal tank have to say i delighted with it as i cant believe the size off it

So tonight we got the tank into the house was not light at all and thanks to those who helped (Andy,Brian,and the lads from Aquarium Solutions.

This is going to take a while to set up so bare with me over the next few weeks

This is where the tank is going
Image

We got the stand in first this was the easy part :lol:

Image

This is a shot off the small tank and the big one :D
Image

When we got the tank part in was a lot off work but was great to see it in finally
Image

Added the Trunking to the tank tonight as i wanted to try get as much as i can done on it this is going to hide all the wire so will be as neat as possible
Image

Image

Then i added the light to the stand so this we light up the whole sump i also wired them in and nut in trunking to make it neat
Image

Image

Image

Image

That was it for tonight, tomorrow will setting up the the light hanging kit and rail also will be doing to the wiring control box

i didn't need the pipe work as i didn't want to use the pipe work i got with the tank all this will be replaced with new pipe works with ball values to try get the balance i can

Thanks very much lads means a lot

As i said this is going to be a long road as i am looking to take my time with it

Tonight we sorted out the pipe work and put in an order for the few bits i need so hopefully will get them Monday and get it all in asap

i made up the control box and made a few shelves
Image

Image

I also added a few controllers and the Pon Box's i don't know if i will have enough room for all them as i still have another 3 or 4 to add it to if needs be ill have to use the other side off the stand :lol:
I still have to drill the holes where the cables will go will do this over the weekend and try add the rest off the controllers
Image

I was going to put up the light hanging kit and rail tonight but i was looking at it and i will have to put in on the ceiling with dry wall fixings but the thing is the screws will not fit in the little nipples that go on the ceiling if you know what i mean so if anyone can help here would be great

And i am trying to find a way to mount the dosing pump some where neat in the sumo and also where to put the controller? again help needed

As for the dosing pump in the sump i am thinking off doing a shelve like a L shape one but would be looking to make it out off perspex's would anyone know where to get something like this or even make one that would do me?
