Tank arrives Friday

My wait is nearly over. I just put the final coat of polyurathane on the stand. My 120Gal stand will arrive Friday. My plan is to plumb and fill it over the weekend. Then get the LR sometime next week.

Anyone have any last minute tips?

Painted mine blue. Like it a lot. Be careful with spray paint. The paint settled ALL around the room. Do it outside if possible.

If the tank is not drilled, I would get that taken care of as well.
It is also easier to mount power strips and such before it is against the wall.

I have an electrician coming this week to install a dedicated circuit for the tank. As it stands now it will be a 15A GFI protected circuit. With 4 wall outlets.

The can of Krylon Fusion Blue Spray Paint, is ready to go.
