Exclamation Update on 55!

So, I built me a stand.

Pictures Below

I built it today. it took me about 3 hours to make the design drive to the store bring it back and build it.

Go to these links to see it

(Dont mind the rusty air duct. i had a tank infront of it that splashed water on it and it got all rusted :[ )

And here is the tank with some Fish baby food at the bottom so i can start getting the tank cycled faster.

I had a old filter i bought a while ago on it. Its only on there to circulate the water and Has live rock at the top of it.
I Am going to build myself a Wet/dry filter Later this week. If any one knows any good guides that would help alot considering ive never done it before :P

Also i have a Small light on it to Help speed it along. Once again this is just aquarium supplies i had lying around.

I need to purchase a Glass top for the Aquarium and a 4 foot light


I am considering sand substrate any Pro's and con's yall can just shout at me?

Im glad i found this forum, with people who share the same hobby.

i bought one of those bonsi trees when i was in Florida :)
i don't seem to be able to get it to stay all fixed together :(
your tank looks great.

when you set up a new tank,hide an extra
sponge or two behind some decor,that way you have
something seeded for you next filter.
