Evening Guys

Evening guys, just picked up my tank had fish many years ago so I'm starting out fresh. The girlfriend knows a fair amount and is helping with this tank. It's a 155 gallon bow front tank. Measurements are 72X24X24 and has dual overflow & dual returns. We have decided to go fresh water with a sump which I know is abnormal but it came with the sump so may as well use it. Not sure what we are going to stock in the tank yet but we are quiet away off from putting fish in the tank, so we have lots of time to decide. Looking forward to reading some of the forums posted up here with information that will help me with the tank. Have already read Eco23's guide to fish less cycling guide(awesome BTW) and cant wait to see what other helpful hints I can find on the site.

Welcome! Very nice! And honestly, large tanks should use sumps. Makes life easier.

Yeah it has been a chore getting it to this point. The guy I bought it off was running salt so it was pretty crusted up. We had one section of the sump that was full of corral. It took me and the girlfriend an entire weekend and 66 liters of vinegar to clean it out.
