thanks angel....it consumed alot of weekends and late nights. I am just happy to get the whole thing out of my garage.

I was going to move my plants from my 55G into the 180G, but I have decided to order all new plants. Going to have quite a few different varieties in there.

i didnt make the tank.....but it was custom made for someone else. i got it off craigs, the glass is 1/2" thick and nice and clear. if i told you what i paid for it you wouldnt believe me.

i may place my plant order this weekend, i will have to see how i feel.
