The heaters should do the trick though you may want another as backup. I don't know much about those timers but the one I bought that is similar crapped out on me after about a month. I got individual timers for my MHs and actinics. I use digital timers 3 different ones running on my system.

I don't use UV so I can't help you out there.

Got the spare heater covered. An AGA 300w for backup, QT, LR cure, PWC etc.
Looks like the CSS will be going back and thinking about getting an Octopus NW200 or Extreme 200. Any thoughts which would be better since ther are close in cost?

Hmmm....I think I would go with the Extreme 200. I use a ASM G4X recirculating skimmer on my 120 system. Octopus makes a very good skimmer.

Ok the extreme it is. Must be better since it cost more ay

A little concerned with this stand. I really like the wide open front access but with no brace and 3/4" mat'l Im wondering if this has the strength to take all the weight. The only thing I have to go by is that the stand is build for a tank this size. Any thoughts on this?

Is it an oceanic stand? If you bought their stand then it is built to hold the weight.

The stand is made by American Oak Furniture. Its the same exact stand in the brochure by Oceanic that advertises this particular tank/stand combo at this link, item #60320
Oceanic Systems | Products | American Oak Stand

Thanks for the comments and help everyone...you dont know how much I appreciate it!!!

Got my 50lb Fiji base rock order from MarcoRocks today. Great looking stuff! The two large rocks are 12" and the box of rubble is about 1.5 gallons worth. More rubble than I wanted but coming from MA to WA I guess I should expect that from FedEx.

Thinking about getting another 50lbs of the same stuff plus 25lbs Tonga shelf rock and the rest Fiji LR from LFS for seeding.
