I really appreciate your work on that wall! Are you a framer or something by trade? If not, excellent job. If so, still a damn good job.Coastie-to-be... hopefully.

The desk job gives me plenty of "thinking" hours on how to build things with my hands. The biggest thing that helps is.... patience and be willing to try and fail but learn from mistakes.
It is just my father and I (when he stops by) working on the wall. My dad did give me the ideas how to support the floor to handle the weight. Now, he is a real country boy and makes awesome stuff from nothing... thats where I get it from. That is also why I want to surprise him with epoxy sealed beer cans in the tank since he is being paid with beer
BTW, Thank you for the compliment!

Picked up my sump last night!
It is awesome! Feels good to see something I designed completed. Can't wait to see the media running in it. I plan to take a video of this thing running once the setup is completed

The tank is usually the cheapest part of the build. All the extra stuff is what adds up.

A blue would look nice for a sump room
I would suggest a good quality kitchen and bath paint just in case you get a lot of humidity in the that roomIf you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.

It cost $60 per gallon (double the price of regular house paint) but it met all the criteria I needed. I should only need one gallon.
The blue color I had mixed... wow! I hope it looks as good when it dries! I will share pictures when I get a chance.
Now I am in debate to paint the back of the aquariums.... blue or black... gloss or no gloss?????
