After starting a 5g planted aquarium last month at work I got excited to start up a larger one at home. A donor 55gallon tank from a friend got the process going.
I'll utilize this thread to keep track of my setup and ask lots of questions as I try and learn enough to keep everything alive and growing.

Stand in progress:

Goal is to have the first water test fill this weekend. Still need to make cutouts in the back of the stand to run filter hoses and accessories.
