A Forum Prowler exposed :)

Hello all.
I've been prowling around these forums for some time now, and figured it was high time I signed up.

I have owned an Oceanic 125g Reef Ready tank for about 6 years now, and haven't set it up yet, (got a really good deal on it since the molding was scratched; bought it, took it home and covered it) and I have finally gained the courage/knowledge to get this tank together.

I feel I have (the knowledge) now, after following these forums and others, reading books, visiting local pet shops and making friends there, to get this started!

Hopefully at some point I will have as much valuable information/ real life experience to share with others as I have found here from all you.

I'm in the beggining stages of building another stand for this tank. I had built one (Hastily) before I moved here to Florida 5 years ago, but did not consider many things, like sump size, plumbing, filter/skimmer height and so on and have come to the conclusion that I was foolish with my interior dimensions.

Stand build up starts next week! Stand dimensions are a hair larger being that the framing on the tank brings it outside dimensions to 72.5" x 18.5"
I'll be building it using 2x4's, Finshed plywood and then coving the assembly with a Glossy Black Laminate Formica.

/fingersCrossed...here i go
