ThatGuy's HiTech 20 Long-"Rebirth"

LATEST FTS 9/10/12:

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~~
Original post:

Got stand from Petco (Kingston stand, $109.99 on sale + tax), built it in 40 minutes. Added Aquasoil, and filled it last night. I'm going to pick up some filter floss to help get it clear. Coralife light and Aqueon filter are only temporary. Hopefully the bacteria in the Cascade 100 will help it cycle in 2-3 weeks. Starred species are ones I hope to add in the future. I'm very excited to go high tech! Also, ask me anything about the species I own.
