Just wanted to share our new tank with all of you. Here we go!!

Picked up our new tank at OCD. They matched the best price i could find on the internet. Great bunch to work with and we support our local shops anytime we can..


Its a big heavy crate OCDs neighbors had a fork lift to help load it on our trailer.



OCDs employee always has a smile on her face.

Drive home was with out incident, now to open this beast and get it in the house.





The wife in the background supervising the work. 



The wife and her new skimmer..



Time to put the cabinet together. Glade it was a nice day outside, needs lots of room..



Now to get the stand and tank inside. Tank weight over 350 pounds so I enlisted 3 Marines and a neighbor..



Level this bad boy up.



Insert sump



This is where we stopped. I am hoping for a fresh water test this week end 12-17-17



We will be using all dry rock and some from our 90 Gallon tank that we will be tearing down.
We have about 300 pounds of this I hope to make something special with it. Some of the cleanest rock I have seen. From Marine Depot.





 More to come. Thank you for looking !!

Well Day 4 with salt water in it. Here is the pluming, return pump, lighting, ect. 

I went with the M1 for return. I am a hard pipe guy don't like any flex tubing but with only one hand right now, well I did flex for the return Confused I will do the UV the same for now, but will put that on when I start putting fish in it. I will hard pipe it all when I get the use of my hand back.

Lighting I have 4 AI Hydra Twentysix HD on the tank. They are on set to where they will be permanently. I will move them around here in a few days and hide cords ect. I just might put a fifth one on it not sure yet. Any thoughts?

Sump set up.Back section is Skimmer and reactors,Tons of room. Front section will be a refuge. It is smaller then I would like so I bought a light to help that out. We will see if it works out.. Any thoughts? Yes there reservoir has to go!! Great idea but takes up to much room.

We are using Red Sea to kick this tank off. In 14 days it tells me we will be adding our first fish. We will see.. So fa our parameters are right in line to what they say they should be. Any thoughts?
