Just started to follow. Gotta say the rock work on your current tank look awesome.

Thanks Calvi. Have to see how my old rock will fit into the new system.

Hanging light fixture coming ng together. Learned how to edge band in the process. Time to stain the outside and paint the inside.

Would you spray the inside white for more reflection?

Looking great. Always loved the 187 dim. Can’t wait to see this thing get wet!

More progress. Making the doors later. This thing is heavy AF. Luckily had 6 friends come over and help. Plumbing coming next.

Let the plumbing begin. Going to try and make this look super clean. Well that's the idea at least.

Also added some wire duct to get some decent cable management.

Been trying to post some photos so here we go. The transition sucked and I'm glad it's over. I still need to make doors for the stand and fine tune the wiring to hide it a bit better but over all coming together.

Transfers suck but that ended up great! Great fish list. I think you could get away with another tang no problem

Yeah transfer was def no fun hope I never have to do that again. Trying to figure which tang I should get. Maybe a small Naso? Trying to stay peaceful with my stock list.
