Unfortuanately, I did not do a great job of documenting the whole process and today I put part 2 of "The Package" from Tampa Bay Saltwater into my tank and thought that I should share what I built largely on the knowledge I gained from this great community. - You can follow that thread here: http://www.reefcentral.com/forums/sh....php?t=2590097

So today, I'll share some pics of the tank as it stands right now, but will be going back and sharing as much of the parts of the build that I do have photos of. I think I did a couple of things along the way that are pretty cool that hopefully others can get some use out of!

So, here are some pictures of the tank and all of the great color and creatures that Richard from TBS hooked me up with.

Without sounding like a commercial, I can't imagine starting a tank without the rock from TBS. I literally had a two day cycle with the rock and the tank is covered in life from corner to corner.

Looks good. Do you know how many pounds of live sand you put into your tank?

I did. Super simple and couldn't be happier. Worth every penny. Both parts came with tons of extras and I had zero cycle time for the tank.
