Got it together today maybe over engineered haha but its solid, glued and screwed with 5x70mm screws.

Counter sunk all holes then quick sand down, will try get all holes filled tomorro then another sand.

I am not going to attach any type of hinge just going to use 2 magnets to hold door then can remove whole door easily.

I am going to gloss inside when painted but how can i achive a smoth gloss white on outside just use normal water based gloss ? To thick to roll thats all.

And need some oppinions on some adjustable feet.

Thanks dean

Getting gloss on today, i must say mdf was much easier to work with, the ply has lines in were top layer came off and doesnt look as smooth and also mdf easier to sand.

I was hoping the gloss would make it looks smother but hopefully looks better after few coats.

2nd coat on still some imperfections but good enough still going to do 3 coats inside and out.

Nicely done :)

I’ll suggest Seachem’s Stability information page, also follow the Discussion link under Support and do a Forum Search
I’m choosing the Seachem product version in my response as there is considerable discussion available :)

Some people seem to have success with it (Seachem rep tends to recommend it only when also adding fish, as opposed attempting to use this product to cycle an aquarium absent fish) - much more so than some other branded products

I always encourage combining any product of this sort with daily water changes ;)
(and not overstocking)

Of course, I’d just buy more plants :p
