    Well. brought in new tank and placed on stand. put in overflow and return. With bulkheads from Bulk Reef to replace the cheap ones from Deep blue that are prone to leaking. Painted back of tank.

    Taking a drive north about a hour to pic up some rock and sand, and whatever else I need at Treasure Coast Corals.
    Can not wait for Saturday.

    Just noticed this thread... Sweet build, very slick and organized stand and sump. You must be my neighbor, lol, Riley's Reef on Center street. Where is Treasure Coast Corals? Do they have a storefront?
