Rachelle's 180 gal build

The first 50 gallons of water and 100 lbs of rock in the tank. Hopefully get the rest in tonight and aquascape done and sand in tomorrow. All of the rock has been curing in totes for a few weeks or is coming from my existing 75 gallon.

Standard 72x24x24.

Aquascaped today with 150 lbs of rock. I have more to add later but it's currently in the 75 gallon. Also added 180 lbs of sand. Unfortunately it's now to cloudy to take any pictures. Will add them soon along with water parameters.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

We are up to 130 lbs of rock and what I hope is a decent start of an aquascape. It's still a little cloudy but looking better.

Just out of curiosity, what kind of filter system are you planning on using? If its a sump, how big?

Very nice tank, love the aquascaping so far
