Kio 4.0 (the repair)

So, if you keep up with my other thread, you know I bought a new reef ready 180g. Well, while moving it my buddy dropped it. I got an idea to put another piece of glass over the cracked bottom. (Thank you Gregcoyote). But here are the pictures... Crack is in bottom left away from the overflows.

Doing water test now, everything seems to be ok. On Wednesday I'll be ordering some rock from reefcleaners and Thursday the pump and plumbing will be done. Plan on seeding the tank with rock from the reef tank. I'll disperse the reef rock when it comes in. Plan on the puffer, Koran, Pakistan, and the two true clowns to go in for now. Other additions will be raccoon, snowflake eel, tusk, and dwarf lion. Anyone see any issues with that list? Or suggestions?

That's looking awesome Kio. Glad it's coming together for you. Btw, how's it going with getting out of the deployment?

I like this tank too! Do you have them in the same room? If you did, it would be like you were in the ocean.
