    Shipwreck's System

    So I am sitting at work trying to avoid it (and doing that well :b16 and started thinking that here I am a moderator and keep telling people to post pics and I haven't. I guess it is time to step up.

    My latest system has been a slow progression due to lack of time, money and heat but I am slowly getting it looking better.

    I have 2 main display tanks, the main a 5' 120g and the other a 40g (flat front, hex back that I built). The tanks are in seperate rooms but both connect to a common sump system in the basement.

    I will start with posting pics of the 120 after I finished all of the wood working around it and then will have to take pictures of the rest later. Also the coraline is also all gone off the glass now, I finally got a magnet & scraper.

    The door handles were from a clearence bin at the Home Hardware. The woodwork took me a solid week of Christmas vacation to do.

    Look great, you've done a nice job, just to be sure, it's look like pine, be sure to give the same amount of varnish on both side to prevent warping.
