    I was thinking this morning while I was out running, when I get back home I have so much to bl00dy do - I never get finished because this type of job requires you to finish everything at once, you can't really do it bit by bit.


    I have had my cabinet sitting in my spare room for over a month now. Have had all my toys lying around and when I get back I have to do:

    1. Re do all the wiring - trunking, false flooring in the cabinet, computer fans for it, put the perspects door on.

    2. Setup all the profilux stuff, got two 6x plugbars sitting there playing catch the dust. Setup the measurement cell for the probes - still don't do anything with the values or the probes.... Setup x2, 4x doser pumps, vortech controller

    3. Finish the auto water change system (dependant on 2).

    4. Fit the profilux flow sensors....

    5. Fit and install the monster multi reactor (Calcium, carbon, Phos) - this is going to be a pain.

    6. Fit the new vortechs - eish the fish are not going to know whats going on

    7. Put in the new LR thats waiting for me.

    All this made me think.... is it just me or does this hobby just take up SO MUCH BL00DY TIME

    The money is one thing and easy managed but the time!!!!! I know rewards etc etc etc - but it munches a fair share of time or is it just me?
