well get closer yet to setting up the 180 !!

Now all I have to do is get the tank on the stand. I painted the stand (was black) to white and relized the 55 as a sump wouldn't work, just no room to workin on it at all way to tall.Ended up using a 44 gallon rubbermaid tote thing instead it fits and was $10 so hey.

Got my mag 24 here the other day (http://www.aquatictech.com/pumps.html cheapest I could find on the net) and all I can think about is getting it plumbed and water in it.To bad none of my big friends are home

Got 6 bags of oldcastle for $20 lovin that find right up the street (thanks chris)

Got 1 workhorse 7 ($35) for atinics on the way and will be ordering my 3x250 ($99 a piece )icecap's this week.I still need to build the canopy though , saving that for when I get hte tank going anyway

Got a turbofloater t1000 coming sometime near wed. from AA seller.

I wish I could do it now ya know, I could then take out the rock from my 55 (120+ lbs) minus the coral stuff and get the tank on cycle. I plan on moving my gobies and dotti backs over , maybe adding a blonde Naso and some clowns to start.I like the maroon with yellow stripes pretty well.Oh well enough for now I'll be posting pics when I get it in the stand anyway

Looking good!!

PVC glue dries almost instantly, I usually wait 5 minutes or so just to make sure though.

ya I am already aware since I make my ro/di in 5 gallon buckets just filling the thing is gonna be a chore I might have to hoook somehting up for that.

Well the leak test is going like *** at this point.I had one bulk head dripping reseated it and it stopped then when I fired up hte pump one the left return pipe is leaking where it seats into hte bulk head.I am tring to goop enough on it to stop it (just a really really slow leak),because I know the only way to fix it right is to redo it adn I dont have another bulk head I'd have to order one and wait

Does anyone have any tricks?

Tons of teflon tape on threaded parts and when you think everything is as tight as it can get try three more times
