That looks amazing, super jealous. Get it set-up already!!

...if I take the dishwasher out and use paper plates I can put a tank in the kitchen without losing counter space

Oh wow I was looking into those.
So I take it you got the reef version because when I looked at the clear models they didn't come with any kind of sump?

Congrats!

I'm curious how you are going to utilize the sump's various sections.

Moving right along by removing more packaging:



The glass does have a pronounced red tint. Top view of top left corner (you can see laxer logo):



And logo:



3 hours got my wife and I here, sans left panel and doors:



The quality of the stand is pretty good and the instructions are decent. The hardware set seems to be for a bigger stand model as we have a lot of hardware left.
We managed to level the stand over 3 different surfaces of different heights with minimal drama. So far, so good.

I like number 3. However, can we go absolutely crazy here for a second...and try number 3 with number 1? I feel theres a size contrast there that will make for an awesome effect.
