This is my first semi-large tank. I currently have a 10G planted that I will use all of the plants from in addition to the plants I have bought on our S&S (thanks TexGal!). I will also be transfering the fish from my 10G to get this 50G started while I redo my 10G with MTS and PFS.
I have my Rex Griggs style reactor already inline with my CO2 inlet blocked until I get my tank filled. Just wanted to do a bit more research before hooking it up.
The driftwood is Mopani in case anyone is interested.
48 x 13 x 18 (same as 55G only 2" less tall)
Mineralized Top Soil topped with pool filter sand
2 x 24" 19W T8 factory fluorescent fixtures with 15W bulbs
1 x 48" 56W T5 Coralife Fixture with 1 28W 6700K bulb and 1 28W Colormax Full-Spectrum bulb
I may be swapping the full-spectrum bulb later per our lighting guru's advice (Hoppy)
10lb tank with regulator, needle valve, and reactor (not yet hooked up)
EI dosing with ferts from GLA (thanks Orlando!)

Sorry for the low quality camera phone pics. I will get more once it clears up. It has only been full for about 2 hours so far.
Any and all comments are welcome.
