180 Gallon Start Up

Ok so me and my dad have had our 90 gallon salt water tank for about a year now and we finally decided to get something bigger. We bought the tank from a lady for just 24 dollars. All we had to do is pick it up, clean it, and reseal it. We built a stand for it I was actually surprised on how good it turned out. We have had a few set backs though. The balance for our light stopped working and we lost the nuts for the over flow pumps. We working on getting new ones now. But I will keep updating on the tanks status and posting pictures.

A good tank size is a custom 180 gallon that is 96x24x18. I have to build it myself tho because I could only afford the acrylic pieces which were 400. Luckily my friend builds tanks so he said he could do it for me.
