    I'll be very interested in how that blowhole works for you...please be sure to let us know. I've seen them running and they looked pretty nice.

    tank

    Just picked up the Deep Blue 65 gal RR tank from Riley's Reef , My LFS

    Missing the bulk heads . they ordered me a new overflow kit. I think I will use my own bulkheads anyway, Db are kind of cheap .
    Put the tank on the stand, WOW is it high.
    Guess I will have to purchase a fish only step stool.

    On too the canopy!

    Yeah that's exactly why i built my stand only 27 inches high. It puts the tank at a perfect level. But it really screws u on equipment under the stand. Cant wait to see u get it wet!
