I’ve been planning to redo aquascape but first I’m going to test how it will turn out on the 60 cube.
Been doing some sketching today, here is what I’m thinking of making

Thanks for taking the time to share it with us, I get just as excited watching others have fun with reefing as well.

Dmitri,

I assume that you've considered the container will hold 8,333 pounds (3,788 kilo's) of water, in addition to the container's weight?

He’ll be fine, assuming his garage is on grade. Typical home concrete slab has around a 3000 psi rating. That tank will distribute the weight just fine.

So little bit of progress here. I did glue both sides to 90 elbow pvc, however it did not go as planned. The angle and work space was so tight, being 2” schedule 80 it was hard to push the pipes in all the way. I think it went in about .25” before it was not moving any more. I hope it won’t leak. I will be testing it once it’s all fully connected.

worst case scenario would be, I’d have to cut both out and then put them together with Union.

fingers crossed...

1000 gallons barrel been filling up slowly for 3 days about 600 so far in it.
I will connect dc12000 to it for mixing salt. Hope it’s not gonna be too weak to mix it.

Other than that, not much progress. I haven’t started building new aquascape yet, but already have everything needed.

Two days ago I took covid shot (moderna vaccine) that think knocked me out...
Been out of commission for two days with headache and my arm was hurting too. Today day three, feeling much better. Back to work...
