Horay homeowners insurance!
Couldn't have said it better myself!

I'm not stressed over it, just frustrated that it is taking so long to get things up and running. This second tank is much nicer than the original and I know it will work out in the long run. I know saltwater is all about patience...

Have you considered getting some help from your LFS? $75-$95 per hour for 2-5 hours might be worth it.

Help with what? First tank cracked due to someone else not knowing what they were doing. This newer tank had a leak that I sealed, just gotta wait for that sealant to dry. It's all under control, just taking a lot longer than originally planned. I'd have fish in already if it were not for that crack.

waiting for sealant to fully cure is the worst! if someone could invent quick-curing sealant theyd be a billionaire

Can't wait to see this beast up and running huma...would love to have a 200+ gal tank but waiting to move to a bigger place and even got the go ahead from the wife for it too....want to do a reef but probably will do a fowler predator tank instead...reef tank will be crazy expensive for me at that size unless I used my bio cube to start a bunch of frags and swap them over...plus predator and coral coexistence limits me on fish types

Agreed.

I've got rock in and plan to start aquascaping and possibly add sand tonight. I figure I will have everything ready and just add the rest of the water and fire the sump/ fuge up on Wednesday.

I dosed with ammonia this morning and will see how that reads when I get home . I am hoping to still have a lot of BB survivors, but want to see...

Naw...even with all the headaches, I still have to do it myself. I got most of the sand in tonight... will put the rest in tomorrow. Started some aquascaping, but I am not liking some of it, so I'm hoping to finish that up tomorrow as well.

I keep changing my mind on Angels...I plan to do two Large...it's between a Queen, Annularis, Magnificent and/or Scribbled. The second and third can't go together.
