    As promised, this is the beginning of my build thread for the Bulk Reef Supply $20,000 Dreamtank giveaway.
    I have watched the promo videos of the giveaway more times than I could count. I knew what equipment I would be receiving but didn’t realize how much it really was until it arrived. I have received 25 boxes from BRS this week and it’s overwhelming! I’ve always had to enjoy this hobby on a tight budget and equipment of this quality really was a “dream”.
    I don’t know yet when the tank will arrive so in the meantime I’ll be researching all the amazing build threads on R2R for ideas.
    And to think there will be $5,000 in coral coming from WWC also...
    Thanks to Bulk Reef Supply for this giveaway!!!

    My wife set out out snacks and drinks for the UPS driver. He deserved it! Amazingly not a single box had damage.

    This may sound dumb but I’ve never had something shipped this big. Did the delivery truck have a pallet jack? I’m hoping to set the tank in the garage until I can get the stand together and gather enough friends.

    Looks great!! Can't wait. I wonder too. Maybe you should start hitting the weights before your tank comes!!
