No problem. Looks like you got it all coming together! The only difference you will see VS brushing/rolling/spraying is the texture on the coat on the back of the aquarium. I've rolled one before with a soft foam roller and it was just as good as a finish as a nice spray coat almost. But it really doesn't matter unless you are picky or a neat freak like me.

I'm not so much a neat freak Lol. But I do like to do things right. I rolled the first coat yesterday and I will apply the second coat tonight. I will take some pictures when I am finished.

Looking pretty sharp. Seeing all these new tanks and painting the back of them and such really makes me wish I had the ability to get a big one going. It sure was fun.

I resealed the tank on Monday and I am planning on doing a leak test this weekend. If all goes well I will be able to start the cycling process.

Dumps in the stand, the rails that will hold the light are screwed to the stand, and my reactors are in the cabinet. The only thing with this new stand is I can't fit my Ago reservoir. The reservoir will have to sit outside the stand. The only thing left to do is a leak test.

That's how my ATO reservoir is. 5 Gallon bucket sitting next to the tank stand. Eventually I was to make a matching box (to match the stand) to put it, or maybe a larger reservoir in it to give it a cleaner look.
Here is mine now. (low quality photo)

I have a 2.5 Gallon container. It was the only size that would fit in my old stand. Now that its not going to be in the stand I could upgrade it to a 5 gallon bucket.

I had a setback today. I tried to fit the plumbing to my sock holder and I can't get it to fit. I need to make the hole bigger so the plumbing is not pulling on the sock holder. Will have to do that next weekend.
