I felt the same way. And it's the same price!

Yay! Receiver my new hinges today for the stand. I ordered stainless steel ones because the ones that were on there already were rusted out. It's officially ready!

I have the vinegar soaked paper towels sitting on overflow in hopes to get the nasty stuff off!

Lights and protein skimmer have shipped and are on the way!

As soon as the bulk buy starts I'll have the RODI and the Refractometer. Along with epoxy and silicone.

Oh and I ordered my brute and lid from Walmart. The lid is there waiting on the brute.


EDIT
I'm also thinking of skipping the rock and getting my power heads and return pump? What do you think? The guy won't go below $2 a pound and it's just gonna sit here till I can get the power heads and return pump. Reef rocks will be cheaper than him..

Sounds like everything is going good! Order the sand now so it may ship today then you'll get it sooner around the time you get your rocks and lights.

I wish I could! That will probably be my first paycheck deduction after bills next Friday.

Read my edit about my rock and tell me what you think if you don't mind!

I know how you can get both the powerheads and rock for under $200. Order 100lbs from reefrocks.net and search 1300gph wavemaker on Ebay. You can get 2 for $25 and they work great. Quality is awesome too. I've got 2 on my FOWLR and had 2 on my 25g and I couldn't complain since they were silent. I'm so sure you'll love them that of you don't like them after you use it, I'll buy it off of you since I need more flow anyway.
