New 75 Gallon Under Construction
I recently bought a setup from a friend. he had an unfortunate accident with his 75 gallon reef tank and lost the whole works (tank, refugium, and another small tank). Among some of the equipment I bought from him are the tank, stand, canopy and a sump. Understandably he couldn't emotionally completely clean the tank so as part of the deal I had to do it. so here are some pictures of my 3 hour night of cleaning.
about 20 min. of hosing out
all cleaned and dried
all taped and ready for paint
this took A LOT of coats of paint
I like it already
sitting in the garage waiting for the rest of my stuff
I have stuff on order that should be here in the next few days ill keep it updated as to what i get.
Awesome. Gonna have to follow this thread. Thanks for sharing. Can't wait for the next update. Any thoughts on what you want to keep?
YAY! I was wondering when I was going to hear about this tank again! What are the projections for getting it up and running??! :) Looks awesome!

So Santa's Elves had a few late Christmas deliveries for me today!
Hydor 300 Watt In-Line Heater and Filter Media
Loc-Line Parts for Water return
And my Malaysian Driftwood :-)
I'm hoping tomorrow my electrician friend will be able to come and add a GFI outlet and check all the wiring for me . we will also modify the canopy to host my AquaticLife T5HOs and the stand to support my pvc and wiring. I'm trying to figure out if anyone makes a setup like the Digital Aquatics Reef Keeper for Freshwater, any ideas out there?
Thanks for your input
What a mean thing to do! Show a box with some nummy bits of driftwood peeking out, and making us wait for the rest, lol! You'll have to let me know how you like the inline heater once all is up and running :) Can't wait to see MORE!!!
Sorry it's been so long since my last post, I Have been busy. i still have some stuff on order from Marine Depot but mostly everything is ready to set up. I ordered more Bio-Balls, a check valve for the return pump, and an Eheim Jager heater for the sump (this will act as a backup). I also need to get my substrait, I will be using Miracle Grow Organic Choice, then cap it with Seachem Flourite Red, then cap that with Seachem Black Onyx Sand. So here we go! Here are the pictures you all wanted
