    Wow. Just wow.

    That's all I can say about the stand. The tank fits PERFECT. I hate to brag, but we did a great job on it. (My friend Kyle and I) Not sure if I've introduced him on here, but he does custom cabinets on the side, and he does a damn good job at it. I built the frame, and gave him some dimensions to make the wrap.

    I drew this up on sketchup:



    I got everything set up and running. I'm waiting on the water to clear up before I post pictures!

    I'm doing this all day --->

    . . . Put a defibrillator on it and shout 'CLEAR!' - It works in the movies.

    Looking forward to the pics.
    Gas mileage isn't everything OIIIIIIIO
    Lack of planning on your part does not constitute an emergency on my part.
    Why pretend there are no stupid questions? Actually, There are many stupid questions: "Should I drink this bleach?" Is just one example.
    Having said that, Just because it's a stupid question doesn't mean that it shouldn't be asked. It's better to know.

    A warm beer is better than a cold beer. Because nothing is better than a cold beer, and a warm beer is better than nothing.

    LOL

    That would be a great way to trip every breaker in Athens.

    LOL. I wonder what The Rock would do if he had that sort of elbow skills?

    As far as the tank updates go, my friend forgot to bring my my camera back, so the video update on the stand will be delayed until I am able to get it back. It should be posted Monday or Tuesday.

    Got the saltwater mixed and in the tank. Before, I just had tap water in there with the peotein skimmer running. It never collected any foam. Now with the salt water in, it's already started foaming after only 24 hours!

    Salinity: 1.023

    Yes, skimmers really don't work in fresh water. I also tried it once just to see what would happen

    I would suggest rasing your salinity to 1.025 to 1.026 tho. It will help to keep your pH more stable and help your corals and coraline grow faster. You have to also keep in mind, the salinity of the ocean is 1.027. The closer you can keep your tank to that, the better it can be.

    I'm looking forward to seeing more pics
    If you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.

    Well, it's going to be a fish only operation until I can get better lighting or a new bulb. No telling how old my current bulb is. Could I toss a few table spoons of salt in there to raise it up some, or should I take some out, mix it in a selerate container and add it back?
