75 Gallon Build

I've posted a few questions about doing a predator tank and through all my reading on this forum and following all the build threads, I've decided to go Reef instead. The build threads also inspired me to post a few pics of the progress, since I can tell you guys love pictures.

This is the tank when I bought it. Took a while to find a spot for a 4 foot tank.


The stand after sanding and staining.


Here's the tank after about 6 weeks of cycling.


My Octopus BH-300F should be here on Friday so I'll post some pics of that installation. I should be getting lights toward the end of the week also. I went against the advice of many people on this forum and opted not to get the Nova Extreme Pro for price reasons. I've heard great things from my LFS about the AquaticLife T5 lights so I ordered the Dual Lamp T5-HO's (AquaticLife LLC | Live It Today! Premium Marine Aquarium Products).

Thanks again for all the help. This is by far the best forum I've found while researching this new money pit of a hobby!
