Sounds good! How much did the materials set you back? I think you said 300?

I think if you scroll up 3 posts above yours, you'll find your answer.

Well my new Digital Aquatics RKE is on the way. I guess with all the money I have spent so far I should really ramp up the build of my stand.

Off to Home Depot!!!

How come you went with such low Kelvin whites? i thought with saltwater you want 10000k or higher but your leds show as 3000k-5000k.

LEDs emit true spectrum so you can get away with LEDs that have lower color temps. Diodes that are white are exactly that only white.

Well I went to Home Depot today and picked up all the lumber for the stand. I also made a trip out to my storage unit to pick up some equipment. I plan to spend the day tomorrow building the stand and getting it ready for the trip up to the third floor for finishing.

I have to run out to Home Depot first thing in the morning to pick up a couple things that I forgot. I plan to take a lot of pics during the build tomorrow.

RKE was shipped today...amazing, ordered it this morning and it is already one the way here.

The 7lbs of rubble rock I ordered came in and I picked it up from the post office. I also picked up another bulkhead for the 10g that I plan to use as the refugium.

That's about all that's going on at this point. Pics coming tomorrow.
