Hey everyone,

I got a used tank from my LFS (they were remodeling) and picked up a 120 gal for about $500, it included a used heater, sump, and fluval 406 canister filter, though I have to get lights and Protein Skimmer for it and am kind of on the fence about running the canister filter (though I run it on my fresh water tank and love it). Currently thinking of doing a Softy and LPS tank with shrimp, sand shifting goby and everything else is up for debate

Have to do some cleaning and then figure out plumbing though I will keep posting.

Yea my first step is try to clean it as good as I can, still gonna get a ton of ammonia regardless when I go to fill it. It came with a 2 stage sump though I am thinking about going a little bigger and probably running a fuge in it
