    Charles' I wonder how long it'll last this time build.

    Well, thanks to Murff, was able to work out a sweet deal to finish off a nano I've been building for the past several months. Last night I scraped out the rest of the sand from my biocube, cleaned it up all nice, painted a panel of the tank and picked a few small pieces of rock I had laying around. I have a small, HOB canister I'll be running with floss, chemipure elite, ceramic rings and purigen. Going to see if the spray bar I modified will provide enough flow for the tank before I consider using a RW-4 I have laying around. The tank is a 5 gallon eco pico, light is kessil a160 tuna blue. I plan on zoos and shrooms. Will be adding a yellow clown goby and sexy shrimp for livestock. Thought I'd get it up and running today but life... Which has a funny way of ruining plans, happens. We'll see, but here's a few pics of everything as it sits. Enjoy.

    Cool rock work. Glad to see you're almost back in the game! I've got some green hairy mushrooms and some blue speckled something or other shrooms I can donate if you're interested.

    Sweet. I've seen this before. 12 weeks until her freshwater tank gets turned into a reef.

    Paid Petco a visit today, ran into Jim, and he has brought life to my tank, one Halloween hermit, handful of Margarita snails and a pair of strawberry crabs. Thanks Jim!
