So here's my first aquarium. I wanted to start a long time ago but got too involved in my other type of hobby related to saltwater and that's surfing. Now that I have my own house I finally got into it. I bought the tank and stand used from CL for $300 and the guy I bought it from was nice enough to deliver it for me! I bought some stuff used and a good amount of stuff new. Here's a list of what I have. 100 gallon truvu RR 60 x 18 x 24 1 piece oak stand that used to be oak color but stained it dark to match furniture. What a PITA to move. Next time going with a 2 piece. BRS RO/DI (2) 65 gallon drums (thank Mark!) Eheim 1260 Euroreef ES5-2 Custom 40 gallon sump/fuge from Krittertanks 4 x 48" T5 IC w/660 ballast from a user on RC (2) modded K4's with SureFlow 1600 props 60 lbs dead rock from BRS, 30 lbs LR from Aquatic Central 100 lbs of dry sand from Aquatic Central, 30 lbs of LS from local reefer Mag24 pump with 50ft of 1"flexpvc to pump water from garage to tank upstairs bunch of other stuff I'm sure I missed. It's good to have this thing up and running. Less trips to HD, Lowes, and OSH. More time to spend with my son and also get back into surfing. Oh yea, this tank took up my 1 car garage so now my wife is happy she can park the car back in the garage.
