    Thanks Rustin14 I got them from Adam at Aquatic Environments in Davenport, these little guys are awesome. They eat like little piranha's, cant weight for their full colors to come in!!
    Thanks for the comps guys.
    Maybe I can get in on the I/C tank tour? Or may be I'll do a DIY day at MY place.[​IMG]

    Great looking set-up!  It appears that you really planned this out - impressive.

    It also appears that you might have a slight case of obsessive compulsive disorder [​IMG]
    By the way - in this pic the cords for the upper power control strip (below ballasts) are off a bit - first one needs to go in an inch or so, last one maybe a half inch - but I'm sure you've corrected that by now!!! [​IMG]

    Eric,
    Only you would notice that...lol. Even after reading your message, it took me a min to see exactly what you were talking about. I thought I was anal, but jeez, that takes it to a whole new level! :) lol!

    Ya I'm a little anal LOL [​IMG], That comes from my car audio competition days, as a teen.

    Mralanjones, the main display is a 120g 4'x2'x2', the sump is a 20g long, the live rock stock tank is 30g, and the auto top off tank is a 10g.

    Thanks for the comps..

    Looks great! Where did you get that huge reservoir tank for the RODI water and how much? I'd love something like that.......

    I agree you should be on the tank tour now. People like to see tanks that are not "mature" as well as mature tanks, and I think most people would like to see the mechanics of how you have things set up.

    Actually, I was going to ask if that was the case - the mounting looks like an amp rack.  I was installing high-end equipment back in the early days - when it was just IASCA.  Funny - most of that high-end equipment has turned into imported crap now.

    You can get those tanks at farm stores like Theisens, but they are way expensive. A 60 Gallon tank at Theisens is $100, maybe someone knows where they are priced better.

    This is the web site were I got mine from,  http://www.denhartogindustries.com/. Blanes Farm and fleet has them as well, they did not have the size and shape I needed so I just ordered one from the factory.
    I was hoping you were to be on the I/C tank tour to give people a stop between I/C and Muscatine! I know your due on that day so I'm not going to hold my breath on this tour. congrats by the way and good luck.

    I know Sprayer Specialties in Des Moines has a good price on these tanks. To B-Rad very nice and clean set-up! Any chance I can get a run down on the ATO? Not exactly sure what all I am looking at.

    Their prices don't look any better that Theisen's or Farm and Fleet.  Here's a link to their site.  Maybe they are better at their retail locations.

    I guess I am used to getting a discount through the company I worked for so maybe the prices aren't much different
