Was going to post as I built but I knew due to work/life this was going to be a very slow build.
But let's begin.
Picked up a Used 225 Gallon Tank, the couple decided to go Saltwater and turned out to be a disaster, money wasn't an issue but they just didn't have the proper knowledge, and their plumbing was completely off. Ended up taking it off their hands for a really good deal.
72" Wide, 24" High, 30" Deep
1/2" Thick Glass
1st Day Moving the tank down to the basement, figured 2 strong guys could do it.
Removed the front panel and decided to take advantage of the opening and clean the tank up, easier than expected to remove the left over residue.
A few days later, replaced the front. Back in business.
Bump: Working on the stand cover (still deciding if I want a cover or not)
Hooked up all the plumbing and decided to spray paint everything blue.
Current Sump Setup (90 Gallon)
Adding more media soon, and removing the carbon after 2 weeks.
Current Light Set up. 6 x Sunblaster 54w T5HO Bulbs.
Hoping I won't have an algae issue, but I plan on doing short and carpeting plants, so I want them to reach to the bottom.
Now for the AquaScaping!
