Lots of good news today, little bit of bad.

First, I picked up the stand:

And tank:

Thankfully Wednesday is my day off, so I'm going to spend part of the day cleaning the stand and tank, and buying a shim for under the front of the stand as it needs to go up 3/8ths of an inch, and some foam to go between the tank and the rail. Then I'll be able to put the tank on the stand and let the fun begin.

In addition I got some stuff in the mail today (and in the past week), and the only thing that was specifically for this tank was the heater. However I've also received my bottle of fert and 1000 gel caps, a new net, a plant trimming tool kit, and Seachem NPK, Flourish, Flourish Excel, and Prime.

The bit of bad news is my filter came and it was obviously used and had a cracked top. So it's going back and I've decided to upgrade to the Fluval 406, 2nd hand but never out of box for $130.

TPT says I'm an algae grower... I'd like to think of myself as one hell of a Cabomba farmer.
