    HI Guys,

    Been in the Reefing for about 2 years then moved from my old house, been 9 months without a reef tank and hated it, so it starts.....

    Got my hands on a 2700x750x750 cm reef ready tank, its placed on the perfect spot and i am currently building all the necessary equipment.

    Tanking it slow and steady.....

    Nice if you can get the trailer all the way into the house up to the place you want to place the tank.

    Take a couple more pics with tank on stand. Are you spending this weekend on the tank?
