Default My Noob 55 Gallon MTS Tank

Starting my tank journal finally for my mineralized top soil 55 gallon Cichlid/angelfish/haven't decided yet tank. Yes I know you're not supposed to plant a cichlid tank or build slopes. I march to the beat of a different drummer though. So follow along on this adventure. Been a trip so far. Cracked the glass and had a mirror placed over it and resealed to help with light. Then the hunt for the perfect rock. Finally found it and I'm finally making progress. Going to plant as soon as I finish the hardscape.

As far as equipment I'm running

2 Sunsun 403b filters
200w Hydor heater
48" Current Satellite Freshwater Led+

Made my own MTS following the instructions from the link below and caped it with black blasting sand.
