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.

Oh you have to update pic's when you get that planted I can only imagine how beautiful that'll be *drool*

And you glued & cut all that glass to didn't you?
