Looking forward to seeing the pics.

Where'd you get the tank/stand from?

The tank and sump is second hand but the guy that had it before me really looked after the tank. Not a single scratch on the DT.

Pictures as promised. Just waiting for the stand as it is being made. Should have it Wednesday/Thursday. Will take pics once I have it. Taken Friday off so have a nice long weekend to set up and play around with scapping and set lighting.

Thank you.. I think for a smaller tank than mine one should be sufficient. I am running two Zetlight ZA1201 with a Zetlight Controller so should be plenty light to grow coral.

I couldn't wait for the weekend. Went this morning and got all the piping for the plumbing. Plumbing done, Scapping done, start fill of tank. That is one thing I wish someone would figure out, how to make R.O. DI water faster.

I think they are awesome lights. Look not the top of the range but they are doing the job. Love the automation with the controller. Do you have a controller with yours?

Good luck with your tank setup! I hope you have lots of fun!
What ideas do you have on scaping? Your 130 scape was pretty awesome.
