So i finally got around to setting up my new tank. As some of you know i recently broke down the ADA to migrate to this setup. I purchased the tank from chris over at Pico Aquariums. Dont hesitate to buy from chris hes a great guy and does some really good work. Heres a pic that chris took that sold me on the tank.



I still havent finished setting the tank up im still leak testing and making water(which i forgot takes forever).. I should be done by sometime tomorrow.

Is that rectangular container next to the sump your ATO reservoir?

Awsome set-up, by the way--even the sump is rimless glass! :lol:

i think ur mad cuz u have a small penis. :) go pay for some nasty and then talk to me.



You can give it a shot, but rim jobs can be messy and dangerous, especially when the inner walls are that thin... really easy to bust.

Man those dimensions are so slick. I think I like your sump more than my own tank!

This thing is going to be awesome from day one. Are you just transferring everything once it's all set up?

I'm looking to buy any coral you have that you'd be willing to sell for a little more than the cost of shipping. PM me.
