I am so happy you found another tank, let me know if you need anything.

Nice -- Really like the stand height. Its nice to look at your tank without having to stoop over every time. I have mine on a 1 ft high podium/stand and it makes viewing easier. GLWBuild.

Sweet tank! I love your equipment list. My last tank was a 4x3 footprint, but even then i had one heck of a struggle to reach the back corners. What do you plan on doing for a canopy(or lack of)? If you plan a canopy, I would suggest making it accessible from 3 sides, so you won't get wet shoulders reaching for the back corners.

Subscribed and patiently waiting for updated pics.

Thanks SIReefer! I like the height as well. Now I'll need to get a stool to get in there, LOL.

Thanks Turbo! I'm not sure what I want to do for a canopy at this point, but I would imagine using something light weight to sit over the top edges.

I need to let the branches soaked for a while before I do anything else. Giving you back your thunder for another month, LOL.

More pics... Tonga Branch rock I received today. It's 75 lbs and there are a total of 8 big pieces. It's sitting on cardboard until I get the starboard in place. Going to soak it and clean it for about a month in a tub. I may get another 50 lbs. I'll supplement it with some live base rock to have it sit higher. Enjoy.

Macropora,

Lucky you-with that group or rock you have there, it will sure make for a interesting reef.

I ordered another 50 lbs of Tonga Branch Rock. The first batch of rock is already sitting in a bucket with new saltwater and powerhead to clean it up.
