Default Finally joining the big boys!

I've got a 180 gallon coming today, made a deal with a local guy on Craigslist and I'm super excited.

I'm NOT super excited about the substrate cost - I used Flourite black sand in my 65 gallon and the calculator says 2" is 8 bags and that stuff isn't cheap! I think this time I may use some pool sand in the back (to help with the slope towards the back) and put something over top of it.

Step one though, carpenter friend is coming over to reinforce the floor with me. It's going on the second floor, across 4-5 floor joists on an outside load bearing wall. Just to be safe, we are going to beef up the floor some. Good news is it's over the garage - unfinished ceiling there so we have easy access to do it.
