Built my first electrolosis tank

I know my welding sucks so you don't need to point that detail out to me....
I will also fess up on a little mishap I had while constructing this. I'm always careful about fire when I'm welding but apprently I need to be more careful when cutting. I cut the rebar using an angle grinder and a cut-off wheel. Being in a hurry, I was holding the rebar off the floor with my boot and cutting, in a sense, sort of between my legs. Well, the shower of sparks somehow managed to ignite the leg to my jeans! I burned a nice 2" diameter hole and escaped with only some slight reddening of my calf. Extremely lucky for such a dumb move....

My only comment I can make is regarding using rebar as the electrodes. I learned from when we did the 250 gallon tank that the rebar proved to be a pain in the arse to clean. With your tank being smaller it wouldn't take too long to clean them. I plan on using flat stock when I build our next electrode cage. I also learned that the whole electrolysis process doesn't work the best in cold weather so I think you are on a good plan with waiting a week or two till the weather warms up some more.

I haven't tried this yet, but was wondering if you could run 2 pieces across the bottom to help out on line of sight. I'm sure someone with more knowledge will come along shortly.
It would definitely help especially on a smaller tank where line of sight is a factor.
