I was on the phone as my BF placed those jars in the sump

And he was like “man you ordered a lot”

While I keep thinking of this photo below

I started in March with a Biocube 16 gallon AIO. I found myself already wanting a bigger tank. I was looking at a Fiji 32. I didn’t want to spend that much. Than I got on Facebook at the beginning of last week and found this tank, 70 gallon flat back hex mad out of acrylic. Priced at 400! Including a 20 gal long sump and all the fixings! I couldn’t pass it up. So now begins the journey of cleaning it, adding a internal overflow (eshopps eclipse medium), building a new stand base, and getting it all in the tank! The tank also came with the corals the guy had and a mini maxi nem. Currently all the coral is sitting in a 10 gallon tank with heat and flow. Today I plan on building the stand. And getting the tank up and running. I already installed the eshopps over flow. I still need to remove some coraline algae that’s stuck to the acrylic. Soak all power heads and get them clean! Along with the pump. I’ll have to replumb the over flow.

here are a few pics. The first one are from the guy I bought it from and then the tank at my place.

Interesting fact the top is sealed on.

Psssst everyone do whatever you do to send good mojo my way tomorrow .

I asked a friend @theoposite (who is only here for live sales) how to respond to a request for a second interview…. He cracks me up!!

So I took the more professional and appropriately appropriate response…that included my standard line of how much I love interviews (over the last 6 years I have interviewed for 2 supervisor spots, 2 shift lead spots, and 2 regular spots)
