    That's very good to know I have been looking at AI lights for my build. I know they have joined forces with Ecotech Marine as well so I really think they are probably or just the same as radions possibly.. thank you for your input !

    Very little forward progress until muscle help arrives. Perhaps this weekend until I can move it in place..

    I like your scape, something different and enough place for corals, guess it will look stunning with some tabling sps...

    Good luck on the build, will follow this one!

    Oops, you are correct. Thank you, I only have 8 bags @30 pounds, so please correct to 240 pounds of the tropic eden. I apologize, as you can see now, simple math I struggle with. However, I did manage to get tank on stand today...

    It appears what I thought would be a endless room of space filled up quickly with the Tunze, and spyglass, not sure if I will be using the second one now. I also not sure why the refuge Is before skimmer section. Also in order to slide the ato tank forward for pump maintenance the tunze skimmer cup has to be removed and the spyglass. Don't think that will be a huge issue for me.

    Looks about time for water! The setup is looking good in that location.

    I found this YouTube video for alternative for filter sock hassle. This guy is in Australia and very nice and helpful. I contacted him via faceboook messenger and he made me 4 of them for 160 plus 40 shipping. So I know I could have bought a lot of socks for 200 dollars but then I wanted something different. Once I get them I will update my findings.

    Beautiful tank can't wait to see it progress forward . I am also glad to see I am not the only one using a Tunze Skimmer on their build!

    I can't wait to see how this filtersock sution works. You can buy large boxes of polyester fluff for very little money and change it out every day after your last feeding. Great idea .

    Yes, I am looking forward to see if it works, like I said I could have bought 20 Red Sea 225 for the price I paid for these however, not hearing my wife complain about making a mess cleaning filter socks in bleach or her washing machine, well I think it is money well spent. Lol
    And then there was light thanks to 3 hydra 52's

    Yes, I know, but even the sand bag recommends 4 to 6 inch bed. I am a little over 3 now, but wanted to wait to add any more of it. TX punisher, you never said where in texas you live, I am from league city.
