Thanks a bunch. My wife is the mastermind behind the tank finish. We were looking for a red barn look. So it was mostly chalk paint and sealers and wax stuff I don’t understand.

fish list is kinda up in the air. large angels and tangs. Several dwarf angels as well.

Yes those lights will be turned way down. Just waiting on the tank to arrive. I’ll throw in a couple of floor jacks underneath in the crawl space.
