Almost had a 125 set up, but a deal came up on a 240 so sold the 125 and waiting for the 240 to get emptied. It is a 6' by 2' x 30" so I may need to buy a snorkel.

Started on dressing up and painting the stand/canopy. Added some trim and started painting the outside black. Entire front panel is removable which is super nice.

Still working on figuring out a sump to use since the one I got in the package deal is too small

Mixing station finally up and running mixing salt as I post. Tested filling from RO/DI to salt container, from salt to salt (mixing), salt out the hose for use in the QT tanks, and salt to the other side of the room to the main sump. RO/DI can go to the RO/DI tank, to the QTs for top off and to the 35 gallon top off for the main.
