Yes I am!
My family has had him for years and he is to large for any of my 4 tanks lol! I was going to sell him but I would much rather see him in this, maybe you have a coral for trade? I am going to breakdown my moms tank next weekend and will need to relocate him. PM me your number and I'll send you the photo that I have of him.

I’m About 98% done with the outside cosmetics of the tank. For the top rim I decided to use trex planks. They’re water proof and can be removed easily if I ever have to change out a vortech (the wires for the vortechs run under the trex). Plus they add a good color which will all tie in with the color of the couch (still searching for the couch). I still need to tile the tops of the corners but that’ll happen next week. The skimmer on the left is just being stored there. Tried to get her up and running this week but she had a few leaks.
Oh and that American flag blanket is just there to block out the sun that sneaks through the blinds. I’m 36 days in to my cycle. Technically the cycle has finished but I’m going a bit longer just to be safe. Hopefully I’ll be adding a few fish (6 or so tangs and a school of chromis) early next month.

Going to keep the Plastic lid on or is that temporary?

Temporary. I’ll find something that looks better in the future. For now it helps with heat and water loss. And since I have nothing going on it the tank I don’t mind it being there
Cool, just wondering. Wasn’t sure the best way to approach a cover for something like that, or if you even try.
