Looks like a great start! :)

 

How come you're running your skimmer during your cycle?

I'm dosing ammonia so I didn't think it would be an issue and I wanted to break it in before the tank gets new tenants.

The IM stand is not very good in my opinion. I just bought a generic from my local fish store. I made my own adapter for the EXT Rail system. I basically bought and couple pieces of wood, glued them together until the EXT Rail cleared the lip on my stand, sprayed painted and screwed to the stand, then screwed the EXT Rail system to the adapter. I've attached some pictures of the adapter and the inside of the stand. If you have any questions let me know.
