that was fast,looks fantastic,i really like the rocks you have,especially
the one in the middle that looks like it's ceroded(sp) away leaving a hole.

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.

yes i am !!!!! i have a few potential stocking lists to go over.... but i also got a line on a bunch of fish free if they can get them to me .. its not my original plan but they are compatible and they are pretty.. so i will see what happens over the next few days... if i dont get the free ones i found a breeder kinda close i may get a really good deal from .. i just need to iron out the details at this point.... i jumped the cycle as i have doen in a number of other tanks and also took a about 1/2 my substrate from another tank we shut down so i should be good to go at this point ...... i so excited!!!!!!!!!!!

You should be excited, I would be too! So, are you going to share the potential stocking lists or are you keeping it on the down low/ hush hush?? Share!!
