I gotta admit... I'm scared to death to breakdown the tanks! Thankfully both 150's empty. I have a heavily stocked Mixed African tank that I'm the most worried about, and countless fry and their tanks... Definitely gonna be a HUGE production

Here's some pics of the extra stuff saving the tank for last! there are snails in the sand he gave me... Dead I'm assuming lol. He said its live sand... Guess I was picturing the sand being packed in water to be live??? Idk lol... He said that when I start the tank I will have live snails popping up, is that true??? I don't even know what the majority of this stuff is haha!!!

That's really cool! I saw a sneak peak of the tank...larger than life! The sump appears to have a wet/dry filter setup. Idk how well those lights will work for corals, probably will support soft corals? I think the ZooMed Coral Sun lights are T8 bulbs not T5 (HO). Still an unbelievable bargain!

Here she is! Heaviest thing I have EVER lifted! The PVC pipe has weird white wormlike things all over it :/ unfortunately I think we loosened some of the plumbing while struggling to get it inside still all in all I think this package deal was WELL worth a hundred bucks
