And the BG is IN!!! Finally...what do you guys think?

Image

Bought this pond foam at home depot to fill in those hard to get areas I couldn't reach with the silicone gun. As well as any big gaps I had behind the overflow pieces of the BG from all the carving I had to do to get it to fit. Its just like the window stuff but meant for ponds, once cured you can trim and cut it and is fish safe.

Now just need to do a little touching up with dry lock in a few areas and on all the siliconed seams.

Its a good start...got a lot of stuff growing out as well. Finally put a new faucet in the sink, so water changes are a lot easier, when they need to be done. Got a permanent hose hook up and now hot and cold water, so I just drain and fill with the hose. I don't even use baking soda or epsom salt anymore really, just prime. The fish have acclimated to my tap water from the drip system. Still haven't put any doors on the bottom of the stand yet, been lazy, just enjoying it and buying new fish.
