Just an update. I brought the tank home yesterday and it looks fantastic. Also, I was able to get 115 lbs of base rock which was live reef rock which was allowed to dry out when the previous owner got temporarily out of the hobby. He is much more limited on space now and will be doing a smaller tank so most of the rocks he had will be too large for his next setup. I was happy to help him get rid of them.
I am working on getting the glass clean now (don't worry, no windex) and will be placing the rocks afterwards. I'll post a picture when I get a chance.
