sam the pima's house is being remodeled.

it is going from 5000 to 10000 gallons. approx 26 x 13x 6


1) remove plex1 from 2400
2) save SS angle
30 remove unwanted block walls from 2400

more to follow

plexi removal....not easy, i made many custom cutting chisels and drove them thru the silicone sealant....all from the top ... longer and longer until all the seal was cut

plexi removed with forklift for polishing before reuse

SS removed for recycle... 4x4x 1/2

note the rebar detail inside the old block wall :headbang2

All righty! Will do!!! What do you feed a fish this large? Whole trout, whole filets, what? Would LOVE a video of him eating.
