    Great looking tank, can't wait to see it stocked. Just a little input on your overflow filter system. It looks to me like a Tru-Vu Aquasystem or something very similar. They and my LFS have filter media pre-made and available. just sayin'. They might have some other info for you too, who knows?
    100 gallon planted S.A. tank, Discus, Angels, Corys, Rummys and BNP.
    50g Super-community tank: Cardinals, Black Skirt Tetras, Diamond Tetras, Clown Loaches, BNP.
    29g Breeding Angel pair.

    No you DIDN'T. Hah. Awesome. (in regards to Brhino's catalog there at the end of p 12)

    BTW every time I hear IKEA I think of the song by Jonathan Coulton:

    I think it may be a very old tru-vu, or whatever the predecessor was. At this point I'm pretty happy with the DIY system I've got rigged up. Hopefully it works like I expect.

    http://i31.photobucket.com/albums/c3...ike82/ikea.jpg
    1. A pitcher and drinking glass set painted with a sun/moon design. My wife picked this up in Mexico on our honeymoon.
    2. A random collection of "natural" stuff of mine: a large geode I got in Alaska when my family vacationed there when I was in high school, a replica wolverine skull my wife got me, and a bottle of "pure glacier water" that I filled with actual runoff from a glacier in Alaska (It's very gray and silty). Also on this shelf but too small to see is a gold nugget I panned for in alaska... that's about the size of a pin head. Not a big pin head.
    3. An abacus my dad got me from China, and an R2-D2 mug. No, I don't know why they're together.
    4. Some minerals my wife has collected.
    5. Two beer steins. Not sure where these came from.
    6. Sports stuff! A football celebrating Michigan's 2007 Big Ten championship (and later National Championship), a Michigan Rubix Cube that I have solved one side of, a hockey puck celebrating the Red Wings' 2008 Stanley Cup, and a few other such things.
    7. Jars of marbles. Mostly empty because the marbles are in the goldfish tank now, but there's still some up there.
    8. An engagement picture of my wife and I, some candles, and a kitty cat piggy bank.
    9. More marbles
    10. Picture of my daughter, plus some toys she's allowed to play with sometimes but not all the time because they're annoying, such as an Elmo that sings happy birthday, and a plush Frankenstein Monster that sings the "Monster Mash" and my wife claims is always staring at her, which is why it's facing the back corner.
    11. My coin collection, plus some coasters. The coasters are up there to prevent my daughter from destroying them.
    12. A wedding picture of my wife and I
    13. A decorative glass goldfish and an egg that I think might also be a music box.
    14. A crystal sculpture of two horses I got my wife while we were dating, plus some things that need to be kept out of toddler reach unless supervised: markers, wii remotes, netflix DVDs.
    15. Two more horse related sculptures. My wife likes horses.
    16. Picture my wife and I at her prom, plus "Bride" and "Groom" baseball caps. Wait... those should be with the wedding picture, why are they with the prom picture?
    17. Picture of my wife
    18. Vase of plastic plants, turtle sculpture, dragon sculpture
    19. Stone chess set I got in Mexico, plus random things that I don't know why they're up there, including the tripod for a Nerf N-Strike Vulcan machine gun.
    20. Some of my wife's books, nonfiction.
    21. Some of my wife's books, fiction.
    22. Some of my wife's Texas-related stuff (she's from there). Texas license plate from an old car, high school yearbook, etc.
    23. Some more of my wife's books, fiction.
    24. Some of my books. Stuff about airplanes, Star Trek, Watchmen graphic novel, Lord of the Rings.
    25. Some of my Warhammer 40,000 Ultramarine figures. I haven't actually been able to play Warhammer since college... none of my current local friends play.
    26. My collection of Matryoshka (aka russian nesting) dolls.
    27. My wife's Dungeons and Dragons stuff: the reference books, a dragon sculpture, some figures, and an assortment of different-sided dice.
    28. Darth Vader. It's actually what's called a "photomosaic"... the image is composed of hundreds of tiny pictures in a grid, and each tiny picture is a frame from the original Star Wars trilogy.
    29. a rain stick. Not sure were it came from, or even why it's stashed next to the fish tank... but it is.
    30. The TV. Moderate sized and covered in toddler handprints.
    31. The cable box. Used to have it on a shelf above but I think it was overheating in the confined space.
    32. A Playstation 2. We have several video game systems but not the latest ones. The PS2 mostly functions as our DVD player.
    33. Nintendo Wii, plus a selector box for the various systems
    34. An X-Box (not 360). Got this for free from my cousin who won it in a raffle but already had one.
    35. Closed cabinet, filled to the brim with my daughter's books. Rarely stays closed for some reason.
    36. Closed drawer, contains DVDs, video games, controllers, etc.
    37. Closed cabinet, filled with my daughter's toys. Also rarely stays closed.

    you forgot the thing to the left of the number 35 thats white and has 4 legs and what appears to be steps, i cant for the life of me figure out what that is

    I ordered the substrate today, it's scheduled for delivery Friday... I did not expect it so fast! I also picked up a couple odds and ends I needed: an acrylic sheet to make a cover for the holes at the top of the tank, and a spare 10g tank just to help keep things alive while I'm doing the big switcheroo.

    This means the list of things I need to do before I'm ready to set the tank up are now as follows:
    1. Finish cycling the tank
    2. Get slate, do stuff with it

    Pretty short list! Obviously the tank will finish cycling whenever its ready (still in the "sky high nitrites" stage), so that just leaves the slate. Guess it's time to call up the rock shoppe. "Hey, this record setting blizzard we're experiencing doesn't affect your ability to sell me merchandise that is stored outside, does it?"

    You might be able to find a slate flooring tile at Home deport, or a store like that ?
    If you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.

    I know that my LFS sells slate, they charge and arm and a leg for it but it is available there all the time.

    The tank is looking great I can't wait to see it once you have it stocked!

    I don't want a nice clean tile, I want something a bit more natural looking. They usually call it "flagstone". Home Depot / Lowes will carry that kind of stuff, but only seasonally, when they're selling other outdoor type stuff.

    Indeed, my LFS has a big bin of rocks that would work, but they charge $2.00 per pound. I'm expecting to pay less than $0.50 per pound, and I think I want 50-100 pounds, so I need to avoid overpriced stuff.

    I don't know if you live in a big city or by one but you should call different home depot cause if your looking for what I think it is (like a garden stebing stone slate they have glued to a sheet of chicken wire) they still have it at my hd so maybe call around and you'll get lucky
