Okay...so the tank is nothing fancy...but I've been having a blast putting it all together...btw...it's in the basement, so ignore the cupboards that need refinishing...

This is the tank as I got it...all salt-creepy...

Plain old painted pine stand...was also very dirty...

...and here it is as of Thursday...up and running for a week...today I added the sponge from the tropical tank to the right-hand filter...

The water is 64 C...so I think it might be taking longer to get cycling...I also added a bucket of 'dirty' water from when I vacuumed the 10g holding tank...and some food...I tested the water today...got some ammonia...
