Introduction of MananaP (Stephan) into the Ebiken family

Please visit him here:

for now I will be updating his blog as I have not yet figured out how to link his e-mail into that blog so that he can access it.

Renovation of Ebiken Studio part 3

I've finished the last and final support beams for the tanks to help distribute weight more evenly and have also hooked up the entire temporary light system. I'm currently starting to cement in place the PVC tubing for the air system and will be looking through the container for the other goodies to finish off this entire system.

Renovation of Ebiken Studio part 2

An update on the slow progress today:

the overall framework is finally complete, quite happy what I achieved myself in such little time.

And this is just to see how nice a 20 gallon will fit in 1 of the slots =) plenty of arm space ontop

And the amount of cuts I have left to finish the supporting center beams between each supporting structure. Glad I at least pre-drilled all the holes.

Renovation of Ebiken Studio

As many of you may have seen, this is the previous setup:

I've decided to change things up a bit by making everything more uniform looking and more functional and organized and so it begins...

This is when I have had almost all the pieces cut to build the rack:

Then... the demolition.... for something that took 4 days to build, I thought it would be really quick and easy for me to take apart little did I know was I wrong.... 

Not only did it take a long time.... but the next day I woke up to not being able to move at all and had to be hospitalized from excruciating pain due to a strained neck( stupid c3 and c4), shoulder and back... Doctors orders is not to do anymore strenuous activities for at least 6-8 months for full recovery as I've injured it over 10 times since 2008's car accident which led to a totaling of my car.... For those who know me for how stubborn I am, that just doesn't stick well with me... A few t3's the next day and a night before of my puppy missing me...

I get straight back to work (today)

at the end of the day we are left with this.... only 1 more support side to go up and then the strengthening beams (not that it needs anymore but just because its me)
