Chris's 180 build!!

I was thinking of getting back in the hobby after I lost everything to a natural disaster! I figured "go big or go home" so I searched Craigslist and found a 180 gallon reef ready tank package. And I've always wanted to do a big build journal. So I'm gunna take a shot at it wish me luck!

I'd go black. I think it would make the colors pop a little more. I'm following I am also in the process of getting a 180.

You would think. I have a background that's dark blue and black, IMO the blue background makes my fish pop more.
