Yup, I am sure just the right tank will show up before you know it. Good Luck.

Thanks Bschowa. I am working a deal right now where I put together a group buy on some LEDs. I will be getting 3 electronic dimmable LED fixtures for about $200 each. They are no name fixtures but several members of the local club have used them and are very pleased with them.

Well, tonight after work I got the sump built. Picture below because I know you won't believe me otherwise. Not sure how I managed it but one of the baffles is a bit off. I don't think the fish will mind too much so that is the way it will stay.

Also got a very nice PM tonight. Several months ago a local club member bought a used acrylic tank that leaked. He started a thread looking for ideas on how to fix it. I told him to bring it by and we would see what we could do. Most of the seam was gone and we got it all sealed but one small area. He ended up selling it. Well, tonight he sent me a PM saying he was breaking down his bow front and heard I was looking for Live Rock. He said that since I helped him, he would give the 50-60 lbs he has and he will store it and keep it alive until I am ready for it. Along with what I have in my 45. I should be just about there as far as rock goes.

Just shows to go ya, what goes around comes around.

Good news. The group buy I put together for LEDs only needs two more and we will get them for $235 per unit instead of $250. Now is the time if you want to go LED. Can't wait to see them over my new 125.
