29 gallong tank, Dwarf Lion Fish! (FOWLR, Build Thread)

Hello everyone, I am posting this in the correct area now. A few months back I had posted in the "Saltwater Reef Aquaria" section of this websites forums. I wanted to do a FOWLR tank from the start, but came to this website for advice and I posted before reading. I ended up wanting to do a reef aquarium, but as of right now I have decided that I am tried of waiting to save up three hundred more dollars for a light to support the reef. I figure I can start my tank now and get that later on down the road.

My plan was talked about for a few months, and I got the list of fish I am going to keep. I am going to keep a Six Line Wrasse, Flame Angel, Dwarf Fuzzy Lion, and a Spotted Hawkfish. In that stocking order with at least a week between. I was thinking of a Tuxedo Sea Urchin, but I don't know. I might just stick with the fish and that is it.

Here is some pictures of what I got so far. I believe I am 90% there and will be ordering the live rock in about two weeks. I am going to get one more bag of sand to get 60 pounds of live sand, and I am going for 50 pounds of uncured live rock. I am going to cure the rock while cycling. I hope to have the cycle done before or a little after Christmas (Fish for Gifts. )....

This is my build thread, and any advice would be extremely helpful!!!

A lot of wires. :-p Kind of bums me out with all the wires. I am going to get a backing, and I think that will help a little. Am I missing anything for this set up??

Hey brother! so this will be your new thread you post on? Looks great! I have the exact reef octopus, you will love it! Have you ever thought about spray painting the back of your tank? Look into it. You will have to spray it now if you decide to do so. But I am glad you have been able to start sooner than you planned!

Hey guys, I will be getting more pics up around the first of next month. My official start date will be the first as I will be getting the live rock!! Tonight I am going to go get another bag of live sand to have 60 pounds of live sand. I am thinking sense I got all that live sand, I will get about 20 pounds of live rock and 30 bounds of base rock. That way I can seed the base rock into live rock. Save some money!! :-p

Here is a question, what should I get to hall the water back from the store? I am going to get about 35 gallons of water from the store, so I don't have to mix it. I plan on just buying my water premixed, so I don't have to deal with it. I will have the salt and a mixing bucket just in case I need to do a emergency water change, but as far as water goes I just don't know if I should just get six 7 five gallon buckets or something else. Anyone have a good way of bringing that much water home? Thanks!
