It's my first day on CanReef!! Hey all!!
I have been around the reefing/saltwater hobby for the past 12 years, living at home my father rans his reef tanks up to this day, I helped him run it, learning as I go to start my own, he acually set up a quarantine aquarium in my bedroom, well now I live on my own and have had my own very successful setup for about a year and a half. It was thrown together in the matter of a couple weeks, very little planning! It's a 56 gallon column aquarium drilled with an custom overflow, Vertex Illumina 12" LED fixture, blah blah. Haha. http://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r183/Trevorgoettler/DA4BA9E9-AF88-4502-ADDD-17DFCEC29648.png (http://s144.photobucket.com/user/Trevorgoettler/media/DA4BA9E9-AF88-4502-ADDD-17DFCEC29648.png.html)
And about 8 months ago I started the planning on my new setup, a new custom made Rimless 90 gallon, with an external over flow, it measures 36x24x24. I went with an ADA style stand for this tank. There is a good 3 months on planning and building just in the stand! And an empty wallet, lol. Well here is the tank when I first brought it home,
