Getting my 90 gallon started!

Finally getting my 90 gallon going! I had a custom stand built that is 36Ē tall. I love not having to bend over to look into it. The downside is I have to use a step stool for everything.
Iíve spent countless hours trying to arrange the rock. I tried 2 islands, walls, curves, I think Iím where I want to be! Iím realizing Iím a ďwallĒ person. I did bring out some lower rocks for some dimension.
New gaskets are arriving tomorrow for the bulkheads and hopefully water will be in it soon!
The pictures donít really do it justice. Let me know what you think!Click image for larger version

Guess not everyone calls everyone man anymore man. Just make sure you rinse the sand out before adding it in. It'll cut down on your dust storm.

Sand and water in!!
I HATE THE SUMP!!! It is too noisy. Itís older, a Berliner wd 125. The way the water flows over it makes so much splashing. I have it running to circulate the tank, but not the way itís meant to be.
My bad for not seeing how the sump ran when I bought the tank, but I felt like I was getting a good deal on the whole package.
So now Iím thinking of getting a different sump, maybe with a refugium, I like that idea.
Any suggestions? Are the diy kits any good? I donít want to spend a fortune!
Sumps are new and scary to me....I unplugged my tank about 10 times making sure it wouldnít overflow!

Just get yourself an old tank or any water grade plastic container. That's all a sump is. It doesn't have to have all the bells and whistles. It's just a body of water for you to put equipment into.
