Well I didn't get quite as much done this weekend as I had planned. The tank, stand and canopy are in the house but that is as far as I've made it.

I have to drill the tank still and silicone the overflow in place. I will work on those minor tasks throughout the week.

This upcoming weekend is going to be a long one for me, I'm planning on taking next Monday and Tuesday off (12th and 13th). As I'm getting older I've decided not to work on my birthday. LOL

Anyway..oh yeah I almost forgot. I picked up a shrimp to drop in with the LR to get the bacteria blooming like mad.

Skimmer is due in on Wednesday...I think that's about it for now...

Quick update...

I'm off work for the next two weeks. Restructuring in the company so a 2 week paid vacation...yippy...It's not as great as it sounds...

Anyway with my new found time on my hands I decided to make some progress today...

Here's what I have done....





So there are the holes in the tank....and here is what else I got taken care of today





48 hour dry time and I will water test.

My skimmer should be showing up any day now. I'm going to start planning out the plumbing. I hope to have water flowing through the tank this weekend...

LOL Thanks!

I wasn't concerned about breaking this glass, now when I go to drill the little 5g that could be a bit tricky considering how thing the glass is...

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Well it's time to water test the tank. The silicone job looks pretty good if I do say so myself. I'm allowing the tank to fill to see if I have any leaks. I don't expect to have any issues but better to double check first.

Tomorrow I will be off to Home Depot to pick up some plumbing parts. I also need more wire to finish up the lights and get them connected to the newly installed drivers and controller.

I am ordering another PC8 and the MLC from Digital Aquatics tomorrow. I expect my skimmer to come in today. Hopefully I will have water in the tank and the plumbing complete tomorrow/Saturday.

I'll post some pics in a bit of what I have complete so far...

Nice. How many pods are you ordering with the MLC? I think it comes with 2 but I have no idea how much of an area they light up. Let me know if you can please, been holding off on the MLC until I could find out.

Thanks!
