Good choice with a 75. I have a thread called new tank transfer in this section, its a 75 corner flow tank might be able to get some ideas

Picture of the electric panel

Just updating with a pic of what I'm planning to hook all electric. It'll be above the bottom of the tank level and behind the tank. It's gonna be movable to either left or right sides totally reachable (as it is in the pic)

Looks great so far. I have not yet crossed over to the salty side, but I'm sure following! That stand and canopy look amazing, that was an excellent find IMO.
Good Luck!

-Kyle

Step 10 - Circulation Pumps

Thank you Kyle. And yes, you should give the salty side a try, it's so amazing... even the building time...!

CIRCULATION - I've got 2 Hydor Koralia Evolution , they're installed and hooked to my electric panel. I've heard about wavemakers but I have no idea about it... maybe will use one in near future.

Also installed a digital termometer today, let's see how it will work.

NEXT STEP: RO/DI SYSTEM

I run a mag 9.5 on my 75 as well. I can tell you, over time they tend to get a little noisier with vibrations. I silenced mine with a quart sized freezer bag full of dry sand placed underneath, worked like a champ.

Step 11 - RO/DI system

One more step today ! Wow... running totally out of money.
Spectrapure Max Cap 5 stages filtration system 90GPD. Good reviews and reasonable price. Can't wait to start filling this tank!

Next Step - Sand

Step 12 - Sand

I've got my water filtration system yesterday and already have mounted it on my laundry wall. 5 stars for the looking and the way it works. Very easy setup.

Sand - bought Aragonite sand from Caribsea. Looks too fine for me, its like a powder...lol;

This week I will fill the tank up to test the plumbing and tank for leaking and so.

Next step - Salt, refractometer, thermometer, chemistry tests.
