Finished painting the interior of the stand with white semi gloss enamel. The bottom 4" on the sides and bottom was painted with white Flex Seal.

Now being back from Gatlinburg Tn for 5 days, I can get back on my build.

Completed testing my 31 gal water sump for a week for leaks. Now I can empty it and start adding my dividers.

Trim completed. Trim on the front is attached with double sided tape so it can be removed, like when I install my sump.

Right now it is level.

Next, need to dry fit my plumbing.

Also start working on my aquascape. I can't decide on doing mounds or pedestals.

Completed my saltwater mixing container completed. Waiting for pump to come today. Then I can start mixing my saltwater, then move the 125 tank into dining/living room.

Starting to tear down my temporary 40 gal tall tank to move it so I can bring in the 125 T gal tank.

Got the 40 T gal tank moved and the 125 T gal tank moved to its location.
This week I'll be putting it together and start mixing my saltwater.

Got the sump in, plumbing done and cabinet put together. Next wipe out the tank then start putting my rocks and sand.
I'll start mixing saltwater tomorrow.

Water in tank, starting cycling. Shouldn't take to long. Used Caribsea arag-alive sand and add 9 gallons of Nature's Ocean Nutri-seawater. Ordered some Florida keys sand to mix in with sand and Florida mud to put into sump. Adding this to get bacteria into the tank. Will also will order some seeded live rock.
