A few months back my wife decided we should get a salt water tank. We *almost* bought one, but decided to try out a freshwater tank first. We ended up with a 75 gallon cichlid tank that we love, but I found myself constantly looking at salt water tanks. Came across a Facebook marketplace tank and we decided to take the plunge. As of a few weeks ago, we are now the proud owners of a used but new (guy never finished setting it up) custom tank from Neptune’s Aquatics, complete with a custom stand. The tank is 48x22x21, so about 90 gallons, but has a pretty good footprint. We’re going to run a Reef Octopus Regal 200 skimmer, Kessil AP700 led light, jebao DCP-8000, 2 jebao OW-40’s, and an Apex controller. We finally picked up a sump today at Neptune’s Aquatics, one of their OceanFlex sumps, 48x20x20. So, it’s almost bigger than our tank, lol. The plan is to plumb it through our wall and into the garage. I have all the plumbing and am going to try and and get everything set up this weekend, barring anything crazy happening. Today I was finally able to get the tank on the stand in my house (and out of the garage), and play around wit the bulkheads. Unfortunately I hit my first issue already though, as the holes aren’t even and one is a little too close to the back wall of the stand. I’ll either have to move the tank forward a bit (not a fan of since I think it’s matched up to the edge well right now) or either sand down the stand or nut for the bulkhead. The other issue is that the stand/tank was rocking a bit front to back. It’s set on carpet, and is e,put at the moment, so I’m sure it will firm up, but I think I’m going to anchor the stand to the floor with some half inch bolts. There is a large “crawl” space under the house, so I have access underneath the tank. I’m hoping that will give the tank a little more stability, especially with our 2 little ones (soon to be 3) running around. Anyways, here’s a picture of the tank/stand as well as the new sump.
