What’s the progress on the tank now that the sump has shipped?

Tank is in progress, I spent some time yesterday and sealed concrete with concrete sealer, This stuff dries pretty quick, I did 5 coats until I don't see any pores anymore and it feels smooth, I filled clear silicone in all the openings on the floor so that water won't be able to go in if there is any spillage, specially under steel plates. This weekend I am going to put sump under the tank, and start adding rock and water to start cycling the rock.

Wow. This will be one huge build. If you need any help I’m right around the corner from you.

This makes my 30 gallon look like a grain of sand.

Long Island

I was able to finish the tile work and took advantage of long weekend, here are some of the pictures of the tile work that I have finished under the stand and around where tank is going to sit.

Ravi, I think you bumped the wrong thread or are you selling this new set-up?
