    Sweet!
    Sump done, tank drilled... are you planning on cycling it, or just moving things over from the old tank slowly?
    Oh, and was there anything you did different between your first try/tries and your second at drilling? Just wondering if there were any 'lessons learned' worth noting.

    Going to cycle this tank. Only things moving into it from the 26 are the livestock. All rock I am getting rid of. Do not want to chance even 1 shroom getting into this one-lol.

    As for what happened the first drilling. The drill bit jammed at the end and jerked. Causing the crack. I tried starting at 1 but the bit wouldn't spin so I turned it up to 3. But didn't turn it down once the groove was established. Thus causing the drill to stop very abruptly once I got through. No clutch action

    Rust-Oleum Pro Enamel. Poured it on and pushed it around using a sponge brush. Worked like a charm

    I see more and more people getting away from the rattle can solution and making it work better.

    Paints dried completely! Waiting on my order of Christy's Red Hot Blue Glue to arrive. All in one plumbing cement. Then Friday I'll pick up my sand & some LR for the fuge. But of course I'll water test it before anything actually goes in.
    Then I need to decide how I'm going to hang my lights.
    Sorry it's taking so long. But this is a pay check to pay check build. First comes paying the bills then tank equipment depending on whats left-lol. My Jeep repairs set me back quite a bit However the wait will definitely be worth it and the added times makes for better decisions
