Very nice! Can't wait to see more pics. Have you started thinking about what you are going to stock it with?

In my 75, I have:

Yellow Tang
royal gramma
percula clown
2 Yellow Tail damsels
yellow watchman w/ pistol shrimp

I really want a nice tang - powder brown, sohol, sailfin etc. The sailfin is the same family as the YT so I am not sure how that will go. I want a nice wrasse too. I do have a flame angel in my frag system that will be added too.

I have not added fish in a long time so I am just looking now.

Any suggestions?

Two fish I would like to keep if I had a bigger tank are a pair/group of Pyramid Butterflies- http://www.liveaquaria.com/product/p...catid=1853&N=0 -and an Achilles tang. I came across www.justrarefish.com they have some interesting options.

Another update:

I bought some more plumbing supplies I bought stuff to run dual dursos in the overflows. I also bought another 100 gal stock tank, 180 lbs of sand and some new Red Sea Reef Pro salt.

I got the doors for the stand yesterday so I cut the holes in the stand and put the first coat of stain on the doors. I need to get this done so I can get the tank in place so carpet can be laid around it.

I have been looking at some fish but as it stands, my yellow tang will be an issue with any new tangs. I might have to leave my yellow tang in the temp system so I can add a smaller tang or 2 before him. Its only gets more complicated ...

I am slowly getting there ...

I drilled out the bulkhead in the stock tank from 1.25" to 2". I got the doors on the stand the the tank is in place. I installed the fans in the canopy and added some locking hinges for the canopy lid.

Now, I just need to plumb the stock tank, drill the holes in the sump for the 1.5" drains from the tank. I also need to cut the hole in the wall for the 1.5 return feed. I am planning on modifying the teeth of the overflow too.

Plenty to do tomorrow

Here are the pics of the completed canopy and stand.

fish ideas:
i have a solar wrasse. i think they are also called tri color fairy wrasse. reef safe, colorful and swims at all levels.

fox face lo. cool fish. more unique looking and fish tend not to fight with them

good luck
