Ok, you asked for some pics of the tank I used to have. Will copy and paste some pics over. Again, if the Mods allow, I would much rather paste the link if you want to read the text and look at the other pics

And one from the corner of the Tv Room:





Unfortunately the existing tank is in front of the new tank and it is not easy to take a full frontal, unless I stand on a chair, pressing the cellphone to the ceiling:

Broken Sump:



Good friends like Hugo from Class Glass fixing the sump while I was in a meeting:



And the sump full again - thank you for the salt Herkie:

And the hardest part of all: The battle with the glass. It took us 04 hours today as we tried to fit it just to get to another obstacle (Some places the fibreglass was too thick) and I had to sand some areas on the fibreglass:



<table id="ncode_imageresizer_warning_6" class="ncode_imageresizer_warning" width="450"><tbody><tr><td class="td1" width="20">

I knew it was gonna be heavy, but never thought this heavy:



And the glass fitted, silicone done. Now it's only for the frame tomorrow morning:

So the old tank has moved out and at last, I can have a "Full Frontal". Setup a couple of minutes ago:





And one with the Painting that was done for the opening on top. Unfortunately the lady that did the Painting, forgot the actual size of the opening and now I have to cut it smaller. Not really want to cause it(the painting) looks nice as is, as it blends in with all the coloured walls in the living area"




I connected the 03 sets of "Moonlights" the other night. Unfortunately I broke one, so only 02 sets working now:

So I decided to close my eyes and built a surge device.

The Bucket and the Fittings:

</td><td class="td2">Click this bar to view the small image.</td></tr></tbody></table>






Inside and Outside to show the pipe depth:

<table id="ncode_imageresizer_warning_2" class="ncode_imageresizer_warning" width="600"><tbody><tr><td class="td1" width="20">
</td><td class="td2">Click this bar to view the small image.</td></tr></tbody></table>




And Wholla, it works:
