Sarah's 150gl build

So I originally wanted to buy a brand-new 150 gallon tank (6' long). Today I was in the LFS And the low and behold they had a 150 gallon wide For sale, that included a sump, All the plumbing, and a skimmer! What do you guys think? I paid $800 for everything!!











There's all kinda of odds & end stuff like a mag12, some heaters, and a bunch of other stuff!!

Sounds like a good price to me if it came with all the extra stuff. Makes setup a million times easier.

This a great deal considering I just bought a few months back a 75 gallon overflow with the stand for 750 not including sump or plumbing or skimmer

Oh I'm glad now!! Now I have to find someone who has a precision marine bullet 2 skimmer to understand this thing lol! With no manual it's kinda hard to understand it.

Got the wood stained today! Next weekend we will put the frame together. The pics are the back sides you won't see, the other sides look better, less knots and discoloration.
