It's looking really nice. Can't wait to see the finished product, as I'm sure you can't either.

It's sooo annoying, I would be half way through my cycle by now! But at least I have had the time to set it all up how I want it without rushing to get it up and running.

I have finally purchased a brand new 55g that is not tempered! I pick it up Tuesday and will get it drilled ASAP. The build is back!

I have ordered all of the lighting to fit in the canopy. I am using LED flood lights that I have tested for a few months on some coral frags.

I am going to have two 20w 12000k lights with a 10w 12000k in the middle. I have also got two 10w blue lights that I'm putting between. I may also get a strip or two blue LEDs for moonlights.

The two red 10w floodlights should arrive any day now, I'll be using these on the ATS.

I have another thread with more detail on these LED floodlights should you want to know more.

Can't tell from the pics but the ats needs to be roughed up for more surface area and less algae loss, just in case as I said not clear from the pics

Yea the screen is roughed up a bit, my phone camera struggled with the bright red lights so it's not really visible.

Is this rough enough? All I could find to do it was a wood saw that I dragged across it in random directions, I stopped when I thought I might go through the screen!
