Sometime in August I looked at a nook in my bedroom that has been bare for over a year and said, "FISH TANK!"
I have never had a salt water tank in my life and only limited experience with a freshwater tank but I decided there was no time like the present to learn.
I sat down with a piece of paper, google and got some strong advice from a good friend and I started my designing, learning, researching and planning. Then, I was off to the glass store for my acrylic and the build of a saltwater tank and sump commenced....
Tonight, we went out and got ourselves some rock, live sand and salt water and I have myself my first custom fish tank!!
Yeah, it's a bit murky.. got to wait for the filter media to do it's job.
But I'm pretty proud of my build. In about a month I went from not even knowing what people made fish tanks out of to completely constructing my own from scratch.
I've got my happy dance going on.
