 Been  quite  long  i  have  been  updated....  Busy  busy  busy  
 
 Lots  of  changes  gave  been  dont  and  this  place  from  open  to  sky  a  great  fish  room  ....  
 
 Here  is  the  pictorial  update  Smile  
 
 Shutters  were  laid  
 
 
 
 Sump  came  inn  
 
 
 
 
 My  old  marine  tank  ....  
   
 
 my  second  4  footer  tank  got  here....  
 It  was  previously  a  very  low  tech  planted  tank  with  anubias  and  blue  angels  
 I  am  pretty  sure  i  ll  continue  with  anubias,  cardinals  and  WC  scalares  
 
 
 It  was  a  very  tough  time  asking  the  fabricator  of  what  i  wanted....  
 Still  this  is  not  that  i  asked  for  but  near  to  what  i  demanded
   
 
 Stand  set  on  monster  
 
 
 The  stand  pipe  is  hollow  and  has  a  cut  soo  all  the  wires  ll  go  inside  through  the  pipe  to  main  cabinet  and  to  the  controller  
 Light  used  on  this  2  tanks  are  kessils  and  if  more  require  ll  use  cree  DIY  
 
 
 
 the  cabinet  size  is  big  than  the  tank  soo  the  tank  was  looking  odd  from  the  entrance.  original  plan  was  to  keep  the  marine  tank  first  as  it  was  the  size  of  the  cabinet  ....  but  changed  the  plan  
 
 now  sold  the  tank  and  asked  the  lfs  to  make  a  new  tank  
 
 soo  the  space  is  empty  
 
 new  tank  will  be  first  48X27X12  is  the  size  
 
 kessils  are  on  the  stand  fired  up  and  checked  
 
 
 
 and  here  is  the  sad  part  need  to  cut  2  of  the  kessils  blue  to  pass  through  the  pipe  did  loads  of  try  to  pass  it  but  all  efforts  wasted...  
 
 
 
 more  tanks  in  making  
 48X27X24  (first  tank)  
 2X2X2  my  storage  tank  
 27X27X15  planning  for  shell  dwellers  tank  
 27X27X12  my  low  height  buce  tank  
 and  18X15X15  hospital  tank  
 
 finally  started  with  plumbing  ......  
 hopefully  it  ll  be  done  today  and  will  fill  up  the  water  for  leak  check  
 
   
 
 the  plumbing  done  for  the  outlet  but  removed  it  totally  today  as  the  plumbing  was  taking  extra  place  and  was  surfing  and  finaly  got  the  hold  of  union  joints....  
 
 
 chiller  at  its  place
 
 
 more  to  follow  soon  ....
 
 Need  a  suggestion  should  i  use  a  UPVC  plumbing  for  the  chiller  ??  Or  should  i  use  the  soft  garden  pipe  ??  
 
 Experts  jump  inn  and  comment  
 
 This  is  the  evolution   of  my  fishy  place  Smile

 I  think  Ashish  is  asking  about  the  paneling  that  had  been  done  on  the  door  of  the  stand.  It  looks  very  nice..
 
 Keep  going..  Would  love  to  see  the  entire  setup  running...
