Got the 55g section of floorpan in this morning. Ita coming along fairly well. Planning on finishing up the left side tonight and possibly the first coat of stain. Going back to satin black (ugh) only because our entire livingroom furniture is satin black. Hopfully itll look decent

Well footer is all built and currently has the first coat of poly stain drying on it. Work till 5p tomorrow then throwing another coat on it and doing the main stand. Got about a basketball sized clump of caulerpa for 10 bucks. Also scored a 72g bowfront setup for free!!! (cant beat that)

I am too!! Especially now because we have a huge variety at work. Im either gonna pair mine up with a b&w ocellaris or a vivid percula.

Oh and the 72g bowfront is home. Entire setup for free. Granted some of the equipment is outsated but thats a small price to pay for a diningroom reef tank

Lol usually its me saying that. Finally for once i caught a freebie deal. I now have exactly 427g of usuable tankspace in my house... Holy crap.

Well the stand footer is done, doors have a solid coat of poly on them, and the main stand is ready for stain. I do however need a return pump. 700gph or higher. So i gotta go track one down

Stand base is sealed and finished!! Just brought it in and did a dry fit to see how the clearances worked out. All i can say is wow am i gkad i used 2x6 instead of 2x4!! Should have just enough clearance to get the cup in and out without banging around too much. Gonna move the live rock and fish over to the 72 so i can start getting the 55 chambered and ready. In terms of layout , all im gonna do is make chamber 1 big enough for the skimmer and sock box, chamber 3 will fit the return pump tightly, and chamber 2 will get the rest. Dont mind the blue hue of the pics, my case is blue and i havent cared enough to color it black. Pic one is of the top end clearance, pic 2 is of the recessed floorpan that i designed to hold just the 55g sump. Doors all have one coat of poly stain on them, gonna toss one more on the inside just to protect against salt creep. Soo excited about getting the 55 under the main tank. Due to the new base being there, the 55 wont be nearly as hard to get into

Next few days. Have to get a few pieces to finish up the system. Finally got the contents of the 55 over to the 72. Now the 55 is in its rightful place, with the skimmer inside. Everything fits and lines up perfectly except for when i try to take out the cup.. I have just enough clearance to pull it up, but not quite enough to come straight out ( get hung up on the tank. Not all is lost though because if i go down the length of the tank with the cup, i can get it out, i very well may just end up plumbing in a drain tube to the cup so i dont have to empty it constantly. Ill only need to take it out to clean it
