Daniels 55g to 125g Build

Ok.. So i've started the whole moving process and what not.

Its been a crazy week and this is what i have so far.
The old tank. (2x2x2)


This is the new tank i got. (4x2x2)


Closer picture of the weir.




This is all the plumbing i brought today.



Sand, Brought 2nd hand. About 200kg. (Alot i know)"000" marble mixed with crushed coral.



Ended up sifting it for the fine "000" marble. (Well payed my sisters to do it, I did abit.. Lol)

Will be using this for the DT, And the crushed coral mixed with the 000 in the sump.

The weir plumbed.


I'll update you as i go along, Now to buy more LR, Equitment, Then should be right to fill it up and start cycling.
