    Major **** up happened, lol. Needed to get the top board done again. Just moved the tank over and noticed it was 1/2" too short aaaahhhhhhhhhh

    Well, the new one is drying now, so the goal is to have the tank in position TODAY on the first day of 2018 !!!
    Picture coming soon this evening.

    Voila........ tank is set.
    Mission accomplished for today :)

    Next is to start filling the Beast and get the Filtersumps mounted on a pedestal type of base.
    I will use a combo of sumps, actually a 40 Breeder and a sock holder section.

    Yes, fresh from the factory with their latest sealing due to the failures in the past.

    They changed their sealing? Does it have starphire glass? I'm wanting to upgrade to the 300dd is why I'm curious.

    Apparently they did! I hope this takes care of the issue.
    Don't want to have another issue like this.

    I love the depth of this tank and the beauty was all my equipment from the previous 210 I could easily use!
