Here is a pic of the progress.. This thing is massive. Even with a step stool I couldn't reach the bottom. 36" tall stand and the tank is 30" tall.

Thanks. Can't wait till my ro/di unit and salt mix gets here so I can start getting water in this thing.

In other news, when I broke down my 50 gallon to move it across the room I accidentally ripped my Kenya tree in 2. I guess as it grew it aftachec itself to another rock. Over 24 hours later and it looks to be recovering nicely.

I haven't updated for a few days, got 80 pounds of dry sand from reef rocks with anoyher 100 pounds of live figi pink sand in the tank and it has been an ongoing process filling the tank with water, my rodi unit is great, measuring 8-14 tds going into the di and 0 coming out.. Tank is over half way filled with salt water.

going to pick up a few pieces of live rock from the lfs on thursday and pour a cup or two of sand from my existing tank into the new one.
