Well I guess its time I start a build thread to keep track of the 120's progression.:) I'll keep it short and let the pics do the talking.;)

First I'll start with a pic of the sumpless 55 gal that most of my critters started in.

Then starts the building of the stand,plumbing ,and filling of the tank.

The tank is looking great! I found it finally (I think), but I will not give it away.
thanks!! Not sure why i don't get notifications for this thread...:confused::confused:that little maxima is 3 inches...really gives a good perspective on the other clams size!
