    Well other than Fish, I am a Master Class Falconer and love to traveling as well. I am able to combine traveling with my falconry as we have a lot of Field Meets in many states throughout the season.

  3. My 90 Gallon Build

    Thank you I like it much better than its original Oak coloring... but I have never re-finished anything before so I was a little worried about how it would turn out... But I appreciate that comment a lot... And trust me I will be posting as many updates as I can... :-)
  4. My 90 Gallon Build

    The longest one is the Main Drain... the shorter one I am using as a redundant in case of the main failing... I have added shut offs to everything, both in and out line so I can control it all 100%... I would like to have had all the Cepex Ball Valve Unions but they are expensive and I only added the odd ball one last min... But I guess one benefit I know which one is which at a quick glance and if I have to have some one maintain while on a Vacation I can explain it fast... Although as simple as it is Right and Left would work too HHAHAHA

    This is how the Miracle Mud will look in the sump... I filled my 38 gallon sump up with Salt water to empty up my bottles to get more salt water for when set it up on Saturday.... I was not able to this past Saturday like I was planning... I ordered some Algae from Algae Barn before I knew I wasn't able to set it up but I have here in the sump with an old twin tube light strip... Fingers crossed this will be running this coming Saturday!!!! Thank God!!! :-)

    20 Lbs of Miracle Mud didn't fit inside my 2 containers... OOPS... haha but no worries I have added a smaller container as it really doesn't matter one way or another...

    The plumbing for the BACK of the tank is painted and done... Its NOT the greatest paint job but its behind the tank so it wont matter... I will NEVER use Flex Seal spray paint again... I painted that blue pipe while it was cemented in and couldn't change it... But I hated the Flex Seal and stopped using it... So I sanded all the PVC to get all the printing off and now its completely white and looks nice so far...

    I went to Ryan's house last night to work on the Canopy. It has to be cut and holes drilled for ventilation. I have the ATI T5 ballast It has to have a slit in the side of my canopy in order for the hot air to exit on the left side.... And 3 Holes or a large rectangle to be cut in the top for the air to enter the ballast... He was able to get the slit cut into it and some router work to make it look nice an fancy so it will appear that it was made like that... I will get the slit stained with the same espresso stain that I used for the rest of it.... I don't actually need the canopy sitting on top to get my tank filled up I do have a 48" single tube florescent fixture I can set on top till I get this all set up...

    I originally wanted BRS colored PVC blue with the Schedule 80 Grey fittings. But that was going to cost me a TON of $$$ So I went to Menards and got the white Schedule 40 PVC and will be painting it with Flex Seal Spray Paint... I am not happy with the Flex Seal spray paint... It comes out in Globs almost like silly string... I had to shake off the excess on this 90 deg angle... I have the 2 PVC Pipes in to keep paint out of the inside so I can cement it together... I do actually like the dried finished results but it is VERY HARD to work with... I took the return PVC outside the other night and sprayed it but I was not able to shake off the excess like I did with this smaller piece... so there will be runs and drips that I will have to cut off or just leave as is... The return that is on the back of my tank will ALL be Black to blend in with the painted apart of the tank to not be as noticeable... Anything that is viewable from the stand, the PVC Pipe will all be Flex Seal Blue and all the connectors will be painted Flex Seal Black... I got the Black at Menards but was not able to find Blue so that was ordered on Ebay and praying it will be here tomorrow so I can get this project FINISHED!!!! This will be my last thing to get done... once the plumbing is cemented I will be able to put WATER IN MY TANK Next Saturday January 20th 2018!!!! IF I had to choose again on the spray paint I think I would have not used the Flex Seal and chose Krylon Spray Paint... I have seen a lot of people use it on YouTube and possibly would have been much easier to work with... But If you all choose Flex Seal I would Test Spray it on something so you can get the idea how thick it comes out so you don't get a thick globby surprise...
