What mixture did you use for the concrete? I have not yet started my build and keep flip flopping on what I plan to do.

I just used Quikrete, I had a bag laying around and just thought that I would put it to good use.

Thanks so much!!
Allot of blood, sweat, well no tears but quite a few bruises lol
As we were moving the tank into the house it slipped from my end and I kind of caught it again as it hit the top of my thigh. Needless to say, I now am the proud owner of a nice swelled purple bruise about 5 inches long and 2 1/2 inches wide on my right thigh and a three inch long one on the left. Ah the pain we endure on the great aquarium adventure.
