Ive had my tank for around 4 months now and want to share some of my progress with my tank within that time frame. Ive bought on sold on this site so some of you know me but hopefully a few more with my build. So feel free to ask questions and make this build post fun =)))

This was after my tank was first filled


After messing with the rock work a little later.


Kept stacking this pic was after like two months of having my tank running.

So now to filtration I had the tank drilled after hearing horror stories of the siphon type overflow boxes. I built my own little 10 gall sump/ refug and it turned out great for the first one I built.

After I got it first put together.

Nice. I like how you have your sump set up. I am doing a 10 gal. sump too and it can be kind of crammed so I like to see how other people are doing it.

Also, I don't know if I missed it, but how many gallons is your display?
