    Tank had been in storage for a few years and resurfaced after some remodel work. Was sitting there nice and dry as decoration until someone meddled in its affairs!

    Hey, you're much farther than I am with my Elos. I'm pretty convinced you'll beat me, haha.

    By the way, is that a brand new Elos?

    Yes. It is quite an awesome shirt. Best Valentine's Day gift ever! That's how I knew she was a keeper! (yeah, yeah, I knew well before that!)

    Thanks good sir. Ended up being the perfect amount plus 50lbs of marco rocks. All said, I hear tons of whining about algae blooms, etc. so I'm a little concerned considering I've never truly cycled a tank. I power washed all of the rock several times so hopefully that helps a little bit. Might go fish only for a while...Like someone I know!

    Hah! Wasn't yours a turnkey system!? Define 'beat'. I also don't have 3,000 gallons of water in my place like some people... :D

    Technically, the tank is not 'brand new' but it could definitely pass as such...Everything is immaculate. Little rust on the hinge screws but I replaced those.

    Not sure if I'm going to use the Elos skimmer or not. Not a fan of them at all but they seem to work and they fit/make the sump work perfectly. Which skimmer do you have?

    New tanks = New toys...
    One or both will be joining two AI Sols.

    I have the SRO XP2000 with a cracked collection cup. It cracked during transport. I still need to get the replacement cup. :(

    Repairable? Unless you can get a replacement cup cheap - Acrylic cement is pretty strong!

    Yeah, it's repairable... it's just too unsightly to me, haha.

    Turn the crack to the back. Then all you have to do is forget about it! :D

    It's in the sump lol..Who cares! I'd bet you can repair it well enough to be presentable...Unless the collection cup completely exploded...?

    I felt like a little kid at Christmas when I turned the lights on.

    Pic is AI only, no Kessil. I have pictures of AI only and Kessil only but none with both..Weird!

    Tank could get by with 2 AI. From what I've seen, it'd probably need 3 Kessils.
