    Main system is complete and plumbed. I filled it up with water over the weekend and letting it run for a few day to test for leaks. So far I had one leak where I over tighten a bulk head and cracked the plastic. Easy fix though. Beside that everything else is dry.

    Plan is to drain the system this week and start filling up with water, sand and rock. While it is all cycling I will be working on the electric next.

    Started to fill up with RODI water over the weekend. I have had the water running since Friday night, this is going to take forever and hopefully I can intercept the water bill before my wife see it!!

    I also started working on the aqua scape for the display. Here is the look I like so far for the main rock structure. It he PVC pipe supporting the ledges will not b in the final design. Just using them for supports till I find what I like and can pin it all together.


    What do you think. Any changes?

    If it were me I might use the rocks you have on to add the sports to get more space under the structure and then get some smaller pieces to continue vertical. Those shelf rock are going to be great when you place coral so I would try not to cover too much of it with the top rocks.

    Looks great Brad. Are you going for a minimalist aquascape in the main tank?

    We'll I am finally up and running. Tank is cycled, and fish are in. Still need to do a few items such as finish setting up the apex, get the reactors up, adding the other two MH lights, programming everything, get the water station up and running, finishing the stand and the cooling fans but at least now I have a tank. Ending up loosing 3 fish - 2 fire fish gobies and 1 anthias. Most of my coral look pretty bad and lost a good bit of them. Too many to list that are no longer with me, but ready to restock.

    Here are some picture.
