Monday after work 6pm

The tank cleared up nice and clean . Skimmer is going crazy. Due to all the detrius from the crushed coral that was transfered over from the 55 gallon. The stand and canopy were finally completely painted.

Looking good! 3-days is good timing, my build is taking way longer, because unfortunately I have to replace everything.
