    Starting to fill the Tank up, it this point could not contain myself anymore, I was so excited.

    But man o man was the water still dirty of cleaning the sand 50 times.

    Sunday Morning, after very little sleep. :whistling:

    I acclimated all the Fish, and corals, siphoned the remaining water from the Boyu to the new tank, and put the light on for the first time. :eek: (What beauty)

    Now it was time for a wrap around cupboard, DIY style :lol:

    Wife @PurpleTang did all the painting, and I did all the cutting measuring and fitting.

    Well on sunday morning when I were there you could see Ozzie were working hard to get this setup clean. When I took it out of the house on my upgrade I didn't clean it. On friday me and @the fish were cleaning the dsb for more than a hour couldn't believe how much crap were in the dsb.....


    Well done the tank is looking good
