Thumbs up psst it HERE!!!!!!!!

wow what a fun and busy day!!!!!!!!! but the 40 gallon is here... i hade to build a riser for it to make sure it was high enough for the plumbing and to accomodate it greater depth (front to back) than my previous tank... but all the sand has been stired and drained off (wow junk!!!!!!!!!) placed in the new tank..... moved all the LR back to the DT and made CRAZY amounts of water LOL.... it still abit cloudey right now but its all hooked up and tuned in to the sump.... cleaned the skimmer and already pulling some left overs out of the sand (YAYAYAYAYAAHHHHHH).. now i just need to work out a hood of some type and get my lighting in order... so the adventure starts again and now i wait and hope for a new diatom bloom.....

LOL, I think most of the fun of having fish is the newness of a fresh tank.

i will post a couple junky cell phone pix later this morning .. but the good ones are coming soon .. i now have the lights worked out and functioning so tonight i am making the supports for them to sit on the tank ... after that the good pix will be forthcoming..... i have a lead on a nice all glass cover for the tank for just under $40 so i may order it in the next week or two..... until then i think i am going to attempt to run it open ... i must admit i am worried. now that the cat has discovered the sump is not a sauna i think he may try the DT if its not covered..
