Couple of quick updates:

I may be going with a different tank. The LFS I'm going to work for offered me a 50g Corner (reef ready) setup. I haven't decided yet. Just a possibility that was tossed out to me today. Or I could go with a 60g cube. UGH I love and hate this at the same time.

Soldering iron I have not worth a crap and is going back to the store. Time to visit Harbor Freight and pick up a new one.

Right now the tank is still empty but the water where I will be working is a wonderful 78.

I don't think I will go back to the 72 that would be the max I could do in my apartment and I'm not sure I want that footprint. I'm really liking the idea of going with a cube style tank, see how that works out for a reef. I'm not sure yet what I will be doing.

I plan on making that decision next week when I start work at the LFS, this weekend I have my son with me and then Sunday afternoon I'm off to NYC for a couple days.

I think a 60-gallon cube would be sweet.
Which LEDs do you have?

I like the 60g cube, but it is not reef ready and if I go that size tank I want a fuge and sump under it for sure.

I have Cree XR-E (107 lumen) Royal blue and Q5 Cool White. 10 of each. If I go larger I will probably supplement with a few T5s. The addition of this job and tons of stuff at my disposal makes things a little more complicated but in the end much better.

get one of those cubes that overflows outside the tank (like the one we saw holding clams at that place in Herndon we went to once or twice)

Forget the "about time" posts, I'm just stoked that I have another thread to read as it updates, especially considering it is one of yours! Good luck man!
