I am excited to see how your Ultimate Sorority project goes. Would you mind linking the first thread of your vision? I want to follow along, and see how it goes. I myself am debating on what I want to do about my upcoming female sorority. Still brainstorming. lol.

Theres the link to the first thread. I think I will keep updating here as I go along. I got frustrated because I wanted to add the link to my first post (the thread starter) but I for the life of me couldn't figure out how to edit my post....it angered me slightly lol.

I'm excited to see how this progresses. Are you going with live plants? I've just gotten my sorority started, just need to add the girls! It will be so exciting to see. And I'm eager to see how yours progresses.

I plan to use fake plants in the display tank and I will have a section in the sump similar to a refugium in a salt water setup that will house java moss to remove the nitrates :)

UPDATE: So today after work I went to lowes and picked up 2 sheets of Optix acrylic ( not cheep...but not that bad at the same time). It should be more than enough to do all of the dowels in the sump. Im going to pick up another sheet towards the end to make into a hood for the sump so to minimize evaporation. I also picked up some silicone while I was there. I did my homework on silicone and got GE 100% silicone 1, which has NO anti mold chemicals in it what so ever. Its FDA approved to not harm you if ingested....which is good enough for me. I also read on a few different websites that the Aquarium safe silicone you see at pet stores is the same thing as this, just relabeled by whoever is selling it. Weather this is true or not....idk, but for 4 bucks for a big tube....I couldn't argue xD So the next thing to do is to plan exactly how im going to set up the sump and probably tomorrow cut all the pieces and put them in place. I want to know if people would rather a video of the process, or pictures? Let me know :) Ill upload pics of the sheets, and silicone in a little bit :)

What kind of a tool does it take to cut that acrylic sheeting?

(I've used the same silicone in my aquariums for years without issue.)

A standard razorblade. Something really sharp that cuts it and from there you can just break it in half. Its just like cutting and sizing drywall (if you have ever done that).
