I mange to get the cabinet sorted. really took for ever and instructions is just as bad as ikea :lol:
first I sorted out my room and clear the floor to make way for the stand. the stand has been left down stair for a few months now but im very happy how it looks. I got the cabinet from amazon and the RRP price is going for £253.44 but I got it for £65 haha no ideal what happen that day but price was reduces for a couple of days and slowly it when back to full price. I was just lucky

Whole wall? or just fill & touch up those holes?

Good ventilation, open windows, (good quality) activated carbon in filter & they should be fine - just remember to continue this for a few days until paint has hardened (vs just dry to the touch)

Also look at various paint brands, some are much less "fumey" than others

Forgot the most important bit ...

this is going to be AWESOME :wideyed: . :wideyed: . :wideyed:
yeah the whole wall need a coat of paint im abit worried about the shrimp. my friend said to cover the tank with cling film so i might just do that and left windows open.

about the tank im hoping it will be awesome. i been planing the big tank for nearly a year now just not got time to set it up. i can only do things after work and weekends is family time. got to keep wife happy :lol:

this helps too (& a definite when painting larger areas) but I'd still add some carbon to the filter, just realize that gas exchange can be affected so you might leave CO2 off or at least reduced levels for the day
