So just got off a call with Waterbox and the Reef LX is now paid for and I am now just waiting on the shipping date. But before that comes here is some of what I have been doing.

I have not completed, but I am putting up a vinyl wallpaper that I ordered from Amazon. The reason I am not done is I ordered 7 rolls and 2 of the rolls matched up perfectly and the other 5 did not, so I sent them back and ordered 7 new rolls. When they come in I hope to finish this work. I will start to post my equipment list soon

I also bought the same tank! I'll do a build thread later as well, and I'm planning on a youtube channel for the build! Mine should ship out sometime next week as well. Will be fun to compare our tanks!

I plan on doing a mixed reef. Did you already get your shipping notification? I can't wait to get mine.
I didn't get a notification yet. I paid on Tuesday for the entire tanks remaining balance. They said they will be getting in the tanks this week and then will call and set up a delivery day. They won't just ship them out without contacting you first to make sure the day works and someone is home. I'm guessing mine will be here next week or early the following week. Time to tear apart my current tank and throw stuff in the frag tank to get ready!

Will totally post lots! I want to get the tank up this weekend if possible and film the entire process. I'll be starting a youtube channel to log the progress and capture it!

Now that the tank is here, I will start the build process, next is finding someone to move this bad boy into my basement. Once that is done I will start my aquascape and cycle.
