    So after alot of thought going backwards and forwards I have decided to shutdown my 250 gallon to upgrade to a 450 gallon total volume system.

    Preperation is on the way getting the new venue ready to host my 1400 x 1400 x 700 CUBE with a seperate room for the whole filtration system.

    Here are two bare pics to show where we currently are and hopefulle by the end of the week I'll post a couple more.

    Watch this space....

    That's a monster sized cube, looking forward to watching the progress. How many sides of the tank will be viewable?

    Update for today and the progress thus far. Hopefully on Monday we will see the deck finished. Then the granite top can get measured and cut.

    Getting very excited now as it seems like all is falling into place.
