Bought tank second hand from local reefer!

Wish me luck folks. The journey begins now!

Got home today and pulled all the amassed parts and equipment out to start filling it with RODI water!

Finished plumbing sump area!

Shes getting wet!

Emergency drain is piped temporarily. Need more fittings for what I want to do.

The large canter rock and the rocks on the right are what are left of the huge 60 pound rock I started with. I kept the initial shape I was hoping for!

I also found more pukani rocks from a local reefer!

I keep messing with the sand still to get it dust free.

I used fritz turbo start on my current system but dr.tims work on my 3 prior for a much quicker cycle.

Are you adding fish for ammonia or dosing ammonia?
Are those shims or adjustable feet?
Goin old school with small ghost feeding and patience.

Those are some thick dog composite shims lol
