    Lol on welding... I use to lay down some pretty good looking bi ln bubble gum as well! Ha!

    I wish I could have fit that SRO 9000 under the tank...
    I'm a little under sized on the protien skimmer at this point.
    Time will tell.

    Beautiful tank! Thanks for sharing! Do you have a fish list yet? Will you get fish from coral corral or somewhere else’s? We’ve been there when we visited Florida. We also like living reef in Orlando as well as WWC. But the people at coral corral are great!

    Lots of tangs! ... and some wrasses. As to a specific list, my wife does have a list as long as my 7 year olds santas list...
    As to purchasing fish and corals, yea... mainly coral corral.
    We have been planning a trip to wwc as I have been on their website.
    While there, we will have to check out living reef!
    I'm about 2 hours south of Orlando

    Best-steve

    Following along on this exciting journey. Thanks so much for sharing. Makes me feel less guilty spending the money needed to get the bells and whistles for our comparatively small 135 cube tank. My girlfriend and I share same interest in the hobby so it does make it really fun. No need to have UPS quietly knock so I can sneak the Alkatronic or 2nd Apex DOS into our condo. She is tracking the shipment on line and waiting out the door to proclaim “Yay - It’s finally HERE!”

    Can’t wait to watch the progress. $1 a visit to see your tank is a cheap ticket - how much for an unlimited pass?

    What is your plan for power outages......portable generator or a permanent installed Generac?
