I haven't posted on this forum for almost a year. Since I'm off of work till Monday, I'm just catching up and browsing. The force is calling.

Found my dream tank, http://www.reefcentral.com/forums/showthread.php?t=2592783 , but my wife would probably kill me if I disappear for a couple of days trying to pick it up. One can still dream...

I'm going to go with the Red Sea Reefer 525xl. I couldn't get it out of my head and don't want to regret getting the smaller tank. Initially when I started planning my build it was like a 50 gallon cube. Things progressed quickly from there. Its still going to be a while until I have all my gear together. I keep waiting and trying to snag things off my list when they are on sale. Someone nees to put reef octopus stuff on sale so I can snag a varios.

Yay! Congratulations. Now comes that annoying waiting-for-it-to-arrive part. Always seems like forever! The Red Sea packing crate is amazing. It's like some super-geek engineer figured out how to put all the parts in like some giant rubik's cube.

Hope everyone stays dry and safe out there. It's gonna be an ugly wet week.

Great time to double check those fail safes and battery backups on the tank as well. I'm pretty sure there's going to be a few power outages.

Well it's that time of year again when I'm using my super glue for fragging to glue up all the dry splits in my fingers.

Should finally have the tank filled today. Only had to make water after work for 5 day! Should have come up with a better plan to make 125g of ro/di. Making it on the go and dumping it in the tank 4 gallons at a time was not the best plan. Fingers crossed for no leaks!
