    Default Spartan 90 gallon build

    I started this 90 gallon after my 30 started to leak and I got rid of it. With help from a couple of friends around the area I was able to acquire everything for this tank very cheap as everything was used. The tank stand was partially painted black so I painted it the rest of the way with a couple more coats. I really like the way it turned out. I would like to upgrade as it matures, but that is a little way down the road. I am still not satisfied with my rock work, but since I have very little corals yet I can move it around without disturbing anything. I am not looking to get any corals really until I upgrade the used PC lights that I am currently using. Here are a few photos of the beginning and what it looks like now.

    Here is some of the equipment:

    Thank you sir! It has been a long time coming. My 30 started leaking last year and I got the 90 gallon used in January. It sat around for about 4 months while I was collecting everything. As soon as I had water in it, my wife said "Here we go again. Now your never going to want to do anything but play with that tank!" LOL! Absolutely correct, my dear!

    Great looking set up.

    Shoot me a PM when you're ready to add more coral. I'd happily hook up a fellow Lansing area reefer with some frags.
