    Well it is true, I broke down my 120 gallon aquarium and sold all of my aquarium equipment and supplies except for a few essential items in hope to one day enter the hobby again after what I wanted to be a long hiatus. However lurking on the aquarium boards just left me teetering on the edge of wanting to return. And since I'm starting this thread you obviously what decision I have made. I want to build my dream aquarium. One that was thoughtfully planned out by integrating some of the best ideas in the hobby all into one massive plethora of aquatic goodness. But the best part about this build is that I plan to manufacture the majority of the aquarium and the necessary equipment personally. This will indeed be a lengthy project but definitely one that is worth effort that will be placed into it. So I hope everyone enjoys tagging along and as always questions, comments and constructive criticism is always welcome.

    Reply ZachB.

    ZachB, definitely the right word. All I ask is that everyone be patient as there are some new skills I will be learning in order to get everything up and running such as working with Acrylic.

    You said "integrating some of the best ideas in the hobby all into one massive plethora of aquatic goodness." What are some of those ideas? Refugium? Piped canister filter with overflow? (Those are two that I've thought of, but haven't been bold enough to try.)

    Saw39, to be honest there are so many ideas in my head that I have to sit down and go through them all. But don't worry... I will start spilling the beans soon enough.

    Skis, of course I ask for your patience. I wouldn't have it any other way. Good to have you tagging along.

    Didn't you just finish up selling your tank about 2 weeks ago?
    Are you kicking yourself for selling all that awesome stuff?
