    The tank is finally wet. Aquascaped it while it was dry and I think it looks pretty good. I left a lot of exposed sand bed and have minimal rock in contact with the sand (have about 3/4 inch of reef floor special grade). I am guessing I will have it completely full tonight or first thing tomorrow.

    I kept the aquascape very simple keeping in mind what I want to keep. I figure a few weeks to cycle and then the first fish can go in.

    I have to open the Genie in the Bottle later (denitrator) and I am doing that on the deck. It is like a 5000 year old bottled fart when you open one that has not been running in a while

    I will get some in a while. I have 40 gallons of water in the tank so far. Once it is running I will shoot some.

    This is what I got so far guys. Once the lights are up it should be nice. I am putting the back ground on when I find a good black one.

    the clowns form the saw are in the corner.

    thanks for the encouragement guys. Thinking some Helfreichis in here Purple tangs will be available again here in the near future too. I guess the embargo ended. Might try to find a real small one and some interesting anthias.

    Where did you get the mounts for your lights? I'm working on a rimless 120 myself and am looking for something similar. Nice build though. I'm interested to see how this turns out in the long run.
