I'm sorry about the stand; we have rain too, the whole weekend! LOL I'll keep my fingers crossed that you can get the stand sooner than Thursday, but if not, Thursday will be here before you know it!

The stand for the 40b was custom made by the guy I bought the setup from. It was brand new, he just never got around to setting it up. I paid $80 for both the tank and stand.
The 60g rimless stand that I am waiting on was custom made by amazing aquariums in daytona beach. He usually does monster setups, very niche shop, lol, but he supposedly made an awesome one for me, I still havent seen it. I know its supposed to be 36 inches tall which is a whole foot taller than the deep blue stand that came with the 60g. I might add the deep blue stand started to fall apart after about a year, not a very good stand in my opinion, looks nice but not durable. :-(

Does Florida have some nice sw/reef shops? Would it be worth a trip to check them out?

I really like them both! The Hawk is very cute, and the Coris has such beautiful coloring!

Thanks guys, I just added them and they are doing fine so far. No one is bothering them that I can see.

jjh302: There are some decent shops, the better ones are in orlando though. Where are you located?

I'm on the ocean in Delaware. Southwest Airlines is offering 99 dollar round trip to Orlando from Baltimore. (Which is only like a tad over an hour drive for me.).
