...and i want to blame bert but he just helps me do it right... Very Happy

So I am getting my 4th tank this week (not including QT tanks Wink ). I have a 16, 46 bow and 56 corner bow. The new tank is a 75. They are all sumpless bc i dont have the desire to mess with plumbing and leaks at this point. Maybe someday. I scored 150 lbs of rock and a PFO dual 250 ballast and 2 PFO pendants this weekend off a guy in eugene and I picked up all the other random stuff I need today... just waiting on the tank now which hopefully will arrive tomorrow. I cant wait to get started working on it.

I am going to have a lot of questions on what to do with this tank. The rock I got is decent sized but not many big foundation pieces. So I need to figure out the best way to put the rock in (stack it against the back? Attach them together?), how to cure everything properly, what a good main powerhead would be, etc.

Anyway just wanted to share. I'll post pics and stuff as I get it going. Maybe I'll do a build thread... hmm...

a tile bit is what i use as i like bigger diameters to work with i believe you can use a masonry bit to go through most of your rock if you want to go that way.

just time to prepare and visualize.besides etting the rock together will take a little longer than you think as you will have to speculate on the best ways to drill and combine the rock and i dought a speedy result will turn out good.
