I thoroughly enjoyed your videos, you have a great speaking voice. That stand looks really clean and square, one thing that you would've struggled with if you were working with wood.

Can't wait to see the sump.

Hey thanks for the best wishes! Iím glad your enjoying the videos.

Alright tanks gonna be here early tomorrow morning. Time to get this stand in the house. That was easy enough with a dolly and some engineering magic.







If I donít like how that ceiling fan looks Iím going to replace it with a smaller one or maybe even a nice modern chandelier.

Iím still undecided if I will build a canopy for this tank but given the amount of lights I plan to use I think a canopy would look nicer and neater.

Well its here! The full video of the delivery and lift will be uploaded tonight and a link dropped here. I'm editing it now. Everything went well! My LFS Did an AMAZING job of getting the tank off the truck and into the house! Fantastic display of professionalism and skill from fellow hobbyists!

In this episode we take a look at the Live Rock that I choose to go into my new tank. I also show how I'm cooking it and what my thoughts are on reefing today when you don't abide by the 1lb per gallon rule. Please like and subscribe! if you must leave a thumbs down please let me know how I can make the videos better and earn your thumbs up!
