Hey everyone. After lots of research, questions and lurking in this site, I have taken the plunge and ordered my tank and equipment. Not the best writer but will post pics and updates as I go. Hope you all enjoy! If you see me doing something wrong(which I'm sure you will) please, let me know. Lol

Alright everybody, after having to let tank sit in middle of living room for a week until I had time, I finally took the weekend to start building. Was much easier than directions looked!

Thanks to anybody that took the time to stop by and share our adventure with us! I'd have never felt comfortable taking on something like this is it was not for the comfort of knowing you guys are here!!!
