Its been a couple weeks since the new tank went up and everything seems to be doing well so I took a few pics with my cell phone.

I didnt do anything spectacular to warrent an "official build thread" :lol2:

I built the standing using the using the stand calculator and painted it black.

80 lbs. of special grade sand.

Transferred all of my rocks and inhabitants from my existing 55 so there wasnt any cycle, I had a small diatom outbreak that lasted about a week, but other than that everything went smoothly, no loss of life.

Here is a crappy picture but I just wanted to show where the tank sits.

Thanks! The clowns were without a nem for about 6 months, they are very hard on them so I added a larger one this time hoping this one will last. It only took them about 2 days to make it their new home.

Thanks, and Im not sure about the rocks. Im digging the openess of it so far. If anything I thought about getting 1 or 2 very large pieces for another tower on the right side of the tank.
