I think I will be using epoxy to get a good structure, I do have almost 24 inches of depth. If anyone is interested here are the rocks I am moving over, full of purple coralline for the most part and pretty porous.
Nice pieces of rock, can't wait for the build!

Thanks for looking! I know it's just rock, but I'm getting very excited as the build is almost ready to start to put together. Thats gonna be fun, assembling it all, I love this stuff!

I also considered since I'm gonna use mostly established rock I won't have a cycle to wait for either. Double bonus!

I know I've gone on about the back glass before, but should I paint it? I'm on the fence with it.. The whole left corner is the overflow and its black so the glass bare might stand out as far as dirt and algae. Also would like to keep the light in the tank as I'm not sure how the spread will be with the lights after they are hung. I dont want a wash out of light going out the back.

No cycle to wait for=

In my opinion, I think it would look really nice painted or with a black background.

I was at my LFS picking up a fish so I figured I'd take a shot of my new tank and stand.

Thats not even the good tanks. lol he has a 180 in his office that is awesome. and I think a 240 in back that is full of 20yr old corals. None of that stuff is for sale of course, these guys just have their personal tanks in the shop.

The 28th is the magic payday! So it's a little over 2 weeks. I may be going to a reef club equipment swap meet and might bring the 75g and halides I have for sale. If that sells then the tank comes home asap. LOL

Nope. Fishy is kinda fishy in my opinion. I would never buy a fish there. Always dead ones in the tank.

The LFS is called amazsing aquariums and he is in daytona beach. I got my controller from him and most of my early test kits and stuff. Absolutely awesome shop, you can go in and talk fish and corals for hours with them and ask any question you can think of. This is the store that got hit with copper a few weeks ago. Not sure if I posted it here but someone is going around florida putting copper into coral tanks. Just for the hell of it.
