The inspiration finally overwhelmed me so here it is, in my home, my new Oceanic Reef Ready Ultimate 120g black tank.

1/2" Starphire beveled front glass w/polished edges
Dual Mega Overflow with Oceanic overflow kits

No sump yet. Still deciding on DIY sump or buy one already made...Hmm

Funny thing, it didnt look so big in the store but got it home in a smaller room and whoa! way huge. Glad I went this size tank now.
Next week sometime will be looking at MH, sand and sumps

Thanks for the compliments everyone. Glad you like it.

Ya that front glass is crystal clear. Probably should have gotten the sides starphired too but that would up the cost considerably so I didnt...still very pleased with it though.

Got some more goodies yesterday. Think this pair of 250w heaters are enough to keep my temps right?
Splurged for this Turbo Twist UV. Will 18w be sufficient?
Also got these timers. Says they are for day-night timer or wave-maker. Do these work well?

Thanks
