Thats an awesome tank! It almost looks like my frog tank (except there is no mini rainforest or red eyed tree frogs inside :P )

I wish I had shops like that where I live.

Congrats Carey!! I am really excited about this build. The tank and stand look great. So many things you can do with it.

Looks like a really nice tank and sounds like a great stocking idea. It should look impressive! I've always wanted a cube tank, and probably will down the road for a specific setup.
Anyway, have fun with it, and good luck!

Just found out today that a good friend of mine picked up the eshopps skimmer for me, so that task is now complete. ALSO just checked on my led's and they are set to be delivered today!! And my BRS order came today too, so I have the phosban screens to use for biopellets on this setup.

Now to just get off my duff and go to lowes and get the paint and plumbing stuff. LOL

I'm still not sure what i'm gonna do with respect to the rock. I want the structure to be tall in the tank since its so deep, just not sure if the rock I intend to use will work for that. I was looking at Tonga branch rock but didn't get any this order. I did get some epoxy so I can attach some rocks to each other.

off to play with my new biopellet reactor on the 125g! Finally got one!

Got my plumbing parts and paint last night. Got the back painted, went with 2 coats and it looks ok so i think thats done. lol Was easier with spraypaint than by hand, don't believe I haven't used it before, so much easier. lol

I picked up ball valves for both input and return and a bunch of pvc parts. Also got a check valve too. Now I just have to get everything to fit underneath, theres not much room between the bottom of the tank and the sump. LOL Might also need another bulkhead, I was going to go with hose but now I think I want to try pvc with unions. Soooo back to the lfs this week I guess. lol

Ok, so I am gearing up to do some major work tonight! LOL I need to tear down the 20g rimless so I can move the biocube over into it's spot so I can fit the 60g! This means moving the fish that are going into the 60g to a 10g I am setting up right now in the kitchen and also moving the lawnmower blenny into the 125g and the engineer goby is going to the 90g tank! So confusing LOL

I figure it will be a week or two tops before I have the 60g up and fish ready so the 10g will be like a little vacation home for them I hope. I will move most of the live rock out of the 20g and put that in the 10g. So I will have 2 clown gobys, a neon goby and a barnacle blenny in the 10g. Shouldnt be too stressful on them. Bet catching these little buggers is gonna be tough though.

Anyway, thats the plan for tonight. I will update what I finish if anything. hehe....I'm really really wanting to get it all done so we will see....
