So cool! BTW, don't know if you know this, but when topping off evaporated water, you'll want to add fresh water, no salt mixed in, b/c when the water evaporates the salt is left behind. Def. want to see some pics!

It looks pretty plain and empty right now with no rock in it. Soon as the base rock gets here and i get it aquascaped i will snap pictures so i can document the tank and rock growth.

Thanks for the tip about evap, that i did not know, i stopped by a lfs yesterday and got 10 gallons of salt water so that i had some on hand until i get a RO/DI unit for the house. i will swing by this week and get a bucket of rodi water to keep on hand for top offs.

I need to start looking into a light timer system. Unfortunately between work and school i am out of the house about 16 hours a day. I need to read up on length of time for blue/white and led lights. I was not planning on having a running tank this fast lol.
