Finally!!! Tank is up and running

After many years of planning and collecting equipment I have been able to fill my tank, sump, and refugium. Here are some pics of the whole operation.

The actual tank is 180 gallons at 24"x24"x72". The total estimated system is around 220 gallons subtracting for sand, pump, and skimmer displacement. Initially I am looking at 160lbs of live rock to go with my 120lbs of base rock. As far as fish currently I am looking at a yellow tang to start with after about 2-3 months after the rock goes in. From there I am going to be looking into several anemones for my mothers enjoyment. Other than that it is pretty open to suggestions.

That's a long time to stare at a bunch of rock
