Tank room, I mean living room

Recommended Posts

I am installing a new tank in our living room. I needed to remodel it before I pick up the new tank from Jeremy. I could not find my shop lights. Oh yeah not a problem, 2 x 400w MH who needs a shop light anyways. The tank is going where the plumbing is sticking up through the floor.  Take care, Mike

Thanks Pete's that stain is called worn navy. It was a leap of faith, I like how it turned out. I planned to paint it if the stain didn't work. Take care

This is a 75 gallon I have in the basement I tied it into my system. My new 240 is still sitting in the back of my pickup. I'll have enough guys over this weekend to get it in the house.

This is my sump. It is a 100 gallon Rubbermaid farm tub. I can use it if I have a major catastrophic failure in my display tank

I got the tank up and running. So far all is good, no floods. What do you all think?

Looks sharp man!  Do you have a pic with the surrounding lights on to show off the tank and canopy color better?

I have a question. I tested with fresh RO water for a week. The system is running perfectly. I added the salt Last night. All of my rock was dry. How long do I have to wait to introduce live rock? Things have changed since I did this before. What is the best way live rock or pods from algae barn? Let me know your thoughts. Thanks
