    Wow dude.
    The electrical is an electricians nightmare. :thumb up:
    Also busy with my build.
    Planning on fully computerising the water changes and stuff on my build and have a couple of ideas in mind but will be following your thread to see what you have come up with for some ideas.

    @josejenny

    It is easiest to upload the images via photobucket and just post the image link on the forum - we can't see any pics.


    Sean already sorted it out

    I would open up the rockwork to allow flow of water through it. Avoid leaning rocks against the glass, as this is a reciept for disaster, as well as not allowing water to flow around the rockwork.
