    I polyethylene sealed mine all over the inside. I also added the liner they use to put in showers also. Saved me from alot of floods in the wood and on the floor.

    That's a good idea with the shower thing to prevent floods I will have to look into that.

    So I got one more hole drilled.This is taking for ever as drilling one hole kills the battery in the drill...its also quite monotonous lol. I think I've details decided to go bare bottom in the tank too so ill have to make a home for my pistol and goby. Maybe stick a 20 long under the tank and stick some soft corals in it or something.

    Well I think I'm going to go with having both Cl returns like two thirds back. So I'll drill those two tomorrow and the stand will be coming to conclusion soon too. Just gotta start getting plumbing together and start getting setup for the new carpet. I hope I get the stuff for my Leds soon...

    As much as I'd like to I don't think I'd risk breaking the tank lol. I'll save the drinks for after working on the tank. Amazingly the smaller holes go much faster so its not as bad.
