Ok, I decided to make a sort-of-build-thread. The tank is already 5 months old so it’s not totally from the beginning, but I will make one nevertheless. Here’s a pic, it was the best I could get.

@squiderp12 - this is a good start to a build thread! You can also describe how you got to this point, any lessons you have learned along the way, what equipment and livestock you have in your system, and (as @JFrar said) what are your plans for this system. Thanks for sharing!

Also here are some more pics - old to new.
This is March 2019. Just when the tank was set up.

I think this was also around March. Just got my first lights here. (Fluval lights I ended up replacing)
