well, on sat. me, my friend, my dad, and my dads friend set teh tank on the stand. the previous saturday, i had to beef the stand up some, because there was nothing there
. but anyways, got it on the sand, then the big task of cleaning the sand
. that took like 2 or so hours, we used trashcans and a hose outside. it worked ok. took the sand in, dumped it in, smoothed it out. then threw in a huge 5g bucket of salt(huge salt cloud in the house for a few minutes) then it was time to fill it. it was really cloudy for the first day, but once it settled, ist really clear now. and sat. night me and my dad ordered 144 lbs of liverock from www.liveaquaria.com we got 30 lbs of lalo, 24 lbs of tonga branch, and 90 lbs of large show fiji(10-24"). that all costed a bit, but will be shipped out today and be here on thursday. i also have 120 lbs of baserock coming any time soon. so this tank is gonna be full. for fish, im planning on a decent sized violitan lion, yellowheaded morray eel, porcupine puffer, clown trigger, and some tangs.

equipment- ive got an eheim 2260 canister, seaclone 150 skimmer, rio 1700 pump

pics
the eheim was so big, that i couldnt fit it in the stand, so i had to do a little surgery to the stand View attachment 44853

the tank is actually clear in this pic, but because im in a dark room with a tank spewing out 240w of light, it makes it look cloudy View attachment 44854

and on top, ive got 3 48" double strip lights that i got from lowes for $7.25 ea View attachment 44855
