*** TANK CHANGE *** 1/24/22

Super excited to start my first Reef Tank and Build Thread.
I clicked the "buy now" button yesterday 1/19/22 on a brand new Fusion Pro 2 | 50 AIO Lagoon Aquarium w∕ APS Stand - Black from Innovative Marine! I joined this forum yesterday as well and have already received some good feedback and articles to research after posting to the "Hello" welcome page. As I look to begin my Saltwater Adventure it was suggested to me that I should start a "Build Thread" so that is exactly what I'm doing. I'm both excited and nervous about this adventure and welcome ANY and ALL advice as I begin to travel down this path.

Here is where I am as of today 1/24/22 ... I contacted Innovative Marine and upgraded to the NUVO SR Pro 2 | 60 AIO Aquarium before the original tank shipped. I have much to learn, more to purchase and hopefully friends to make along the way. I do not have a delivery date yet however below is what comes with the AIO Aquarium I purchased.

I’m SOOOOO excited about this tank and can‘t wait for it to arrive. Plus, I believe the size is perfect for my living room … I didn’t want something too overwhelming— with that said … everyone tells me down the road I will want bigger (I guess everyone does) lol.

I’m researching Neptune systems controller along with plenty of additional options and am considering going ALL IN with Apex, Trident, Sky lighting, DoS and Auto-top-off …. Am I crazy !!??

Great tank just got mine up and running as well. I put mine on casters so I could get to the back easier.

Stand built !!!! Very nice stand … instructions were a little difficult to follow but easy enough to figure out.
