75gal--PATIENCE-- plantman19-- DEVELOPING 56k warn

To begin i'd like to thank everyone on the forum for help now and to come. So since i've had this tank its been something like a year (hence the name patience). It was orig going to be a reef but i nixed that infavor of a cheaper and prob more fun planted tank. I got it on ebay for 150$ with the stand and tank and they were in good condition. I did a little work on the stand which you'll see below because i didn't like the color. So that about brings me to now.
List up equip-

Rena XP4
Azoo 300w Submersible
Hagen Glo 2x56watt 48''
Eheim Feeder (lazyness)
Later i'm buying a co2 system from Green Leaf Aquariums prob in Aug.
Flourite substrate
ton of little stuff on order from F&S.

i don't have much of a livestock setup so i'll be looking for suggestions or even some settup you guys would like to see. But my favorite plant would be the sword and i'm kinda partial to angelfish.

Progress pics-



When i first got it.


New stain


XP4

CURRENT- i leak tested it when i got it be i figured i'd test the filter.




Ten coats of paint later....


I'll try to update often but this is just a start and prob won't budge till after i go on vacation on th 11th.

THANKS!
