Just a update video of my polystyrene and cement background under construction !!! As you can see i have done all the cementing just a few more touch up when the tank is empty ect !!! Hopefully should have everything complete at the start of the new year ??? !!!! I have put a lot of hour's and hard work into getting this project to this stage !!! maybe 90+ hours now ??? maybe more lol
I have just taken my time with it as i have never done one before and i want to do it properly and not mess it up or have it fall apart or something not working properly !!! But Im coming to an end with this project now !!! only a matter of a couple of month before i can set up and have fish again !! Well hopefully !!! just depends how long the leeching process is going to take ????
Also a lot of work has gone into my background thread !!! on http://www.ikeepfish.com/ some of you may have found the link to this video off there in the first place !!! If not check the forum out it's a great place to learn and chat chill out ect !!! fantastic community !! thank's for reading hope you enjoy the video !!! I am leeching the background out atm and the ph reading i am getting are around 8.8 !!!! But when i tested the other day it had gone down to 8.6 !!!!! I want to get the ph down to around 7.5 before i even think about putting fish in there !!!! I will probably get some water softening salt in a few weeks it if the ph isn't really dropping !!!! As this is supposed to speed up the process !!!!!
Their will probably 5 background video's on this project in total !!!! That will be done as i progress to further stages of the project !!!! :)
Hope all have found this interesting and helpful if you are planning on trying one of these backgrounds yourself good luck and Feel free to ask me any questions if you have any as i will reply to them as best as i can ;)
