    Oh and the bulkheads are schedule 80 PVC. Yeah overkill... Either way the inside fittings I will just use a little silicone to give the fitting a seal so I can remove it for any reason if needed.

    I actually started usind another cad program for drafting. It is free and easy to use. It is called nanocad.
    Thank you for mentioning that. I've been wanting to get my hands on something like you use, and know that autocad is expensive as hell. Appreciate it! =]

    I am pretty happy with it Kevin. It uses all of the same commands as AutoCad.

    Ordered glass for the sump and overflow today. What an ordeal. I had called the local glass shop to get an estimate based on my drawings. He asks the average size of most pieces and tells me just to figure $7.50 per square foot and that would include any polishing of the edges etc.

    Today I drive to the shop to deliver the drawings so that they had all of the info. Now I calculated about 8.5 square feet at about $65. While there I explained in detail what I needed and what I was building. No problem he says... it will be a couple of days.

    I stop on the way home at the hardware store to get a few fittings I forgot. When I got home I double checked the measurements of the glass just to be sure. Alas I decide to make the overflow a half inch larger. I call the shop and give the guy the info. He says I'll call you to let you know. A few minutes go by and he calls.... the total will be $227... I said what??? I mean really? These are basic shapes. He proceeded to feed me a line is bs about being too busy and they would send this out to be fabricated. I said thanks but no thanks and would never do business there again.

    Called up another local shop and he is doing if for $90. Should have it Thursday.

    Some places really do not understand customer service. Good to hear that you found another shop.
    Do as I say. Not as I do.

    Thats awesome, are you going to paint the back? I know you said you wanted the coraline algae, but I still think a black back (or even blue) with the algae on it would look better than the clear glass.

    Then you could put the powerhead on the side that's built into the wall too

    Yes the back and left side of mine will be black. Take that rock structure and flip it 180.

    I don't think the tank in that pic is a 120 so I will upsize appropriately.
