Well... I hit a few snags on the way - mostly I ran out of money, but I'm back on track and after selling a bit of stuff, I got the money to finish my project.
In the last four months, I've managed to pick up *almost* everything I need...
Equipment list is as follows:
120g Marineland with single corner overflow
Custom stained stand/ split canopy combo
2 Black Python EX 120w controllable LED
4 Koralia 1400's
800w JBJ Tru-temp heater/controller combo
Octopus Extreme 200
Eheim 1262 return pump
40g breeder sump conversion w/ fuge (in process)
Purewaterclub 150g RO
w/ added dual TDS
85 lbs Base Rock (Reefcleaners.org)
120 lbs Caribsea Oolitic sand
There is more to purchase, I know, but the above is a list of what I have sitting and waiting on me to do something with it... The rest will be as I go.
I've managed to paint the back of the tank Krylon "True Blue" to hide the cords and whatnot... I'm still having an issue mounting my lights though... no word on what I might do yet.
The sump/fuge will be done next week - the glass shop was too backed up to finish cutting my glass before quitting time today and they're closed on the weekends <sigh>
That being said, I'm installing the RO
system in the morning and then to the Home Depot to pick up a few basic plumbing supplies and wood for building a not-so-fancy stand that I am going to mount the powersupplys for my lights on.
For those wondering... and ATO, controller, calcium reactor, and wavemaker are on my wish list...
My wife is tired of looking at an empty tank, so I figured I'd get some water with a couple fish in there first before I tell her I dropped another $1500 on the tank.
Pictures forthcoming as I take them.
