pictures from a few weeks ago. Setting up my tank.

First pic is preparing it to bring in the house.
Second pic is in the house with 550 lbs of base rock.
I have more pics as I progressed that I will post if anyone is interested. Hope to post some soon with fish etc.

acrylic is 1 inch thick. Tank was much heavier than I thought.
