Thanks. I think it will turn out pretty nice. I really wanted a 75 gallon but I just didn't have enough room for one.

I went a little crazy this morning and bought a bunch of stuff for the build...

Went ahead and ordered a RO/DI system. I didn't have one sitting around, and BRS buys theirs from my company. Figured I would support them...

Also ordered the 40 lbs of Pukani rock. Hopefully it's enough...we'll see!

Then....I went crazy!

I ordered a Tunze 3155 ATO system, an Eheim 3000 pump (this Danner is pretty loud), a Cobalt heater, some Fiji Pink sand, and.....an Apex Controller with Temp and PH probe!

I'm pretty excited! Should start getting some of the stuff this Saturday and the rest early next week!

Looks great so far. I also have a 40 breeder and ordered pukani rock from brs. I ordered 60#s and it was way too much. I bet 40#s will be hard to fit into your rank. Mine also came in really big pieces that I had to break up. Good luck!!

Been busy tonight getting the Apex setup. It's pretty sweet! Took awhile to get going but I think I have it down. I bought a wireless bridge so I didn't have to run Ethernet all the way downstairs.

I also got my sand in the mail, as well as a refractometer, and a pour and dip container for acclimating. I've wanted one for a long time for my freshwater tank and decided to use my amazon points to get it.

RO/DI and Pukani rock should be arriving tomorrow. It's supposed to snow 4-6" tomorrow so I hope they make it!

Thanks. I always like to follow build threads on tank near my tanks size to see how arrangement is. 40 Gallons can fill up quick with a reef tank!
