I hung the doors very carefully with two people and shims.
Here's the sump inside the stand.

Finished putting water and sand in. Next I have to do the plumbing. I have about 30 more pounds of live rock that will go on the right side of the tank. That will make a total of 75 lbs of live rock. I think I'm going to go with a 4x80 ati t5ho on this tank instead of the leds I originally intended to use. Anyone with experience with these fixtures feel free to give your opinion. Here's the tank as of now.

The worst thing is every time I buy something for the fish tank I buy my wife something of equal price. So when it was all said and done I was out 300 bucks.

No lights are last on my list. I still don't have a return pump.

Herbie plumbing complied with


Now I just need the pump. It's either going to be a magdrive 9.5 or quiet one 4000. I'm open to suggestions.
