update, finally got my new aquarium. i transferred everything successfully and installed most everything to get the nano running. I ordered a dosing pump from china for less than 1/2 the price of the triple dosing pumps you see selling here online or from a lfs and i'll tell you this dosing pump is worth it's weight in gold! I will review it alittle later since i'm updating the aquarium build. I'm still trying to get used toAI's LED's on the tank. They don't look too powerful but from the little experience i've had since 4 weeks ago they are powerful! I initally cooked some ric's and acans running the LED's at 20%. At first i thought i did something wrong and replaced the acans and those got cooked also! Then i realized that all the water parameters are good as i had another acan sitting at the extreeme end of the tank and those did just fine. conclusion, the LED's are powerful! Needless to say, there is going to be a learning curve with the AI's as I'm coming from MH to LED's without prior experience so I must move slowly otherwise i'll kill/spend myself out of the hobby!
Enough talking! here's some pics of my new and improved aquarium!

and under the stand. The dosing pump is not completely installed as yet and my ato reservoir is still the juice container (but that will change as i've designed the shelf to fit the new container when i finally get it).
