First of all, let me say what a great site this has become and what a great group of people this has been, the discussions and advice given have been priceless. My journey started about a year ago when my wife told me I needed a hobby, I told her I would like to have a saltwater aquarium again, I had one about fifteen years ago....my how things have changed! First was planning on where to put my 55 gallon stand that I was planning on, then on which wall to mount the 75 gallon in. I settled on a four foot section in our basement that is totally wasted space to put my 90 gallon in. I then went to my first GIRS meeting and after talking with some people there, mwood specifically, I decided on a 120 gallon, the biggest that I can practically fit into the space. 55 gallons to 120 in five days................that's what it's all about The is the "fish room" with the sink and counter. , I got up the nerve to cut out the drywall and frame the tank in, here is what it looks like from the front. For me, the creativeness of building this and solving all of the problems that come up is truly enjoyable. The first problem was how to level the stand on an unlevel cement floor. After much thought, here are the "legs" that I put under my stand, there are eight of them with the front of the stand fastened the studs in the wall. The legs seemed to work quite well, although I havn't water tested it yet. Here are a few other pictures of the back of the tank and the sump area. I'm thinking of using two of these totes to make my sump, they only deflect 1/4 inch overnight when filled with water. It's either that or making one out of a 40 gallon breeder, I havn't decided yet. Just another little thing I need to break to my wife. I swear that after telling her what I'm buying for the tank, it might have been better for my health to keep smoking............. My son liked the idea of a saltwater tank so much, he got one of his own, a 55 gallon FOWLR set up in his bedroom, outdone by a sixth grader. I'll have water in it soon..............I think I've told myself that before. My next purchase is probably going to be a compact III from Air water and ice. Any thoughts are always appreciated and again, thanks to all who share their advice here.
