    Jayjigga's Dream Tank - 120G (4x2x2) - Slowest build ever...

    So I guess I could have started this build 9 months ago when I had the tank and stand put in the corner of my living room, but then I would have to deal with 9 months of you wonderful people asking for updates and not being able to give you chit...

    So fast forward to March 2014, I finally got the back plumbed:



    Spun it around...heavy as hell, and filled with sand:



    Started the fill...this will be a while:



    6 hours later...progress!!



    So that's where we're at so far. The plan is going to be a mixed reef, but mostly sticks. The 30B that doesn't exist will be the znp tank

    Thanks for tuning in!

    Jay

    Man, big tanks are a bear to set up. What are the plans for stocking? And is that setup for a closed loop (the bulkheads towards the bottom)?

    It's a closed loop ready tank, but I'm unable ATM to run it that way, so just going the standard route.

    Stocking is somewhat a secret, but I'm tossing the idea of a trio of clowns. Does that ever work out? Also, keeping my Desjardini, cleaner, maybe the pylei, maybe the tomini, and probably my mega melanarus.
