We should finish by 1:15 because of another booking at 1:30 but I am sure we will all be stoked to see reef systems!

I want to come to this so bad. I am bummed I have to work. I am gonna see what I can do to make it though.

 

 

We hope to meet you too! The reefers (lol) in the Eugene area are a hoot!

 

 

 

ALSO; we have made the decision to NOT drill my new Corner tank. Being that it is a different shape and not your standard rectangle it makes me more nervous to drill it, as I don't have a "backup tank" just in case.

 

SO; what we were thinking of doing is, buying acrylic sheets and having a demonstration on how to build an acrylic sump... how does that sound?

I was thinking of using everyone's expertise together lol

 

We will need: Acrylic, cement or acrylic bonding glue, rags and alcohol to clean and prep, a large handfull of bread ties ( to stage the pieces away from each other) , silicone and 1" squares from thin acrylic material to stage the baffles ( see Nnewhouse's thread on RC "how to build a sump in 2 hours" ) a drill and hole saw if it is to be drilled.

Why would we need silicone?

 

I have weldon, syringe applicator, acetone, drill, table saw, angle squares (i can mess these up though need them for my glass tank build) and lots of clamps.

 

I also have acrylic already cut for a small frag tank I was planning to make someday.

I'll be there!!

 

John what time do you get off? Maybe you could make it up for the tank tour?

 

I don't get off until 4 which would put me up there at about 5:30. Still working on a way to make it though. Don't count me out as of yet :)
