New build 58 gallon

Starting a new build, been in the works for the past month or so. Should be picking up the stand from getting stained and sealed either tomorrow or Thursday. Tank is 58 gallons, 3 ft x 18" x 20" high. Had it built with an overflow pre-drilled ready to go. Also decided to go up a size in glass, went with 1/2" just to make sure. Also picked up the plumbing for the Durso and return. Plan to do mostly corals, and a few community fish. Ordered a new Tao Led, should be here in the next week. Hope to start the cycle around the 4th, may have to wait depending on budget for sand, rock, and water.

After having everything sitting in the garage for 2 weeks, the stand finally can through and sealed up. I am very happy with it. I did a test fit and decided to paint the back black. I am seriously considering buying the matching canopy for it. Gonna add sand rock and water tomorrow and start the cycle, on to the pics...

Ok well photobucket keeps crashing so pics will have to be later, sorry peeps.

ID:	186619 Tank with some rock, and sand while filling it up. Back came out great, I'm stoked. It's the first tank I have that is against a wall, but painting was easier than I thought it would be. Tank is filled now and shrimp is in. Now to wait...

*sorry for the glare, only pic I snapped today.
