    Hey guys

    So for about 2 years I've been wanting to start a marine tank but never actually had the courage to start one.
    Then about 6 months ago i found this site and was blown away with some of the tanks!
    I recently joined as a member and finally took the plunge after many months of research and reading through many of the builds on this site.

    I first thought of buying second hand but finally decided against it as I didn't want my first marine tank experience going wrong with the chance of equipment not working and then not having a guarantee to fall back on. So I went to phuture lab in claremont and ordered there M90 marine tank as I wanted a cube feel but with a bit of length as well. The tank Dimensions are 900mmx600mmx450! So I've been eagerly waiting and finally have some progress to show you :thumbup:

    The cabinet is done and the glass has arrived! I must say that I've been very impressed with them, Keeping me in the loop throughout the whole process. Anyway enough of me blabbing and here are some pictures of the cabinet and glass! Wish me luck on this incredible hobby:biggrin:
