Dang, that took some time. It would be worth it to have a 35gal garbage can with a circulation pump and heater with some salt water already mixed on hand.

It took me all day to full my 135 with a 35 gallon trash can. It's worth it to have on hand when you wanna do large water changes, let me tell you. Also I was looking at your pics... Is that a wet dry sump?
