Hey guys! I'm new to the community and out to earn a spiffy new Build Thread Badge!! I don't have all of my supplies just yet, but most of the things I do have at my disposal (well, all of them so far) are 2nd hand. So far my supplies are as follows: An Oceanic 42 Gallon Hexagon Aquarium A Vertex Aquarastik Protein Skimmer An Eshoppes Sump - Maybe RS100?? Various plumbing & flow items Overflow Box A 950 gph return pump - TOO MUCH! Last - A Two Little Fishes Phosban reactor that I don't plan to impliment until later, if ever. I plan on buying a used light through R2R from a fellow member. This should give me everything I need, but I also plan to build my own stand. The stand will not be a hex, but it will be big enough to hold the tank and the sump! I'm super excited! Of course, I am only currently in the planning stages so all of my plans my change by the end of it. The stand I have now has some water damage, but it the tank was full when I acquired it so I believe it would hold up alright... still, better to be safe than sorry. Things I still need are as follows: Light - buying soon! Dry/Live Rock Crushed Coral A new return pump, suggestions? I feel I am on the right track. I am going to pick up some lumber this week and build the stand. I will do what I can to take pictures every step of the way to people can see what I am up to. I'll try to get some pictures of the tank and equipment that I have at my disposal as soon as I can!
