Looks great, I still am waiting to get mine in the house, but did see that I am missing the manifold kit. How was the leveling of the tank?
My floor is very un level! So it took us a bit to level it. You will need a wrench and will need to tilt the cabinet so make sure you have a few guys. But I love the leveling feet!

Tank is finally in the basement. I had 3 movers come today to move it and I had to help because the 4 one did not show up. This tank is Heavy, but the guys knew what they were doing and we were able to muscle it and the stand around. I am missing the manifold, but Waterbox is shipping it out to me, but I have completed the plumbing. Now I have to get the doors attached and get all my equipment up on the tank.

I just placed my order. Can we change the control box from right side of the stand to the left?

So just a quick update, life is making this build slow, but slow is good in this hobby. I have been working on the control box and have made some progress. The big thing is the TANK IS GETTING WET. I have started to fill it up and should have it filled and the cycle started by Wednesday. 20210517_171933.jpg 20210517_171929.jpg

Hello all, I have started the cycle on the tank using Dr. Tim's fish less cycle. Today is day 2 and I have.

Ammonia <0.15
Nitrite 0.1
Nitrate 25
PH 8.0
I have to add Ammonia tomorrow per the instructions. I hope the cycle will be complete next Saturday and I will introduce my first fish once complete.
