Hello All!

I am currently in the middle of a tank build here. I have never owned or operated a fish tank before... So with the best of luck and maybe if some people follow this thread with me they can help with the setup! Im always open to answers.

At this point i have all the water i need to fill my tank. Its RO water only (no DI unit on it yet) My Water PPM is at approx 5 PPM Dissolved Solids.

I have the return pump plumbed in quiet one 5000. Should give me a fair amount of flow it splits at the head into dual returns into the tank. (all plumbing was done by my LFS in Red Deer) Thanks for that!!

And As of right now, I have the Geissman Infinity Dual 250 Watt Halide Ordered as well thru the LFS in Red Deer. Ill post lots of pictures of the light when it shows up, as i am quite excited to see this!!! ( I havent seen one in use on anyones tanks yet)

Anyways!! Ill get all my pics up soon, and i look forward to the people at can reef to help with my build!!!

Alright, a few more shots of everything. There is the orginal cabinet colour. We stained it much darker. I have included some pictures of most of the equipment i have purchased for the tank. All of this was purchased from my LFS aside from the controller jr, and the glass cleaner. Got them 2 from a friend of a friend. Im very excited about the moonlight. Im trying to figure out something on a small electric motor to be able to run the moonlights on a slider. To pull them out from the wall, under the Light, after it has turned off. I figure there is an easy way to operate this thru the Controller.

The next photos will be of the tank in its final resting place. The electrical end of this is going to be where the many experienced hobbies can feel very free to throw in there 2 cents on safety!
