Disney's Tank Journal - 75G
 
So here we go! woot! finally here. I've finally started to put this together. We finally bought a place, and have finished opening the last box just yesterday. Doesn't feel like home yet, but working on that one :lol: Here is what we set up, tho the plumbing is not quite finished, someone from the forums has graciously(bless his heart and soul, dog and neighbor) for helping us out.

Here is the info about the tank. Will keep posting some photos of the tank as it develops and grows.

Hey thank you! it's been a long time waiting and have worked hard to get to this point. Let's just hope I can keep going and doing the right thing with the tank :-?

thats easy, temperarorily attach the ro to the bathroom thats beside the tank and send the filtered water to the tank via hose, then add salt and mix!

Hey Disney... If you click the Search button you can search for any of your posts or your threads, they are all listed in chronological order... I think.
I don't have a salt water tank, too scary,(death is too expensive and heartbreaking for me there) but am anxiously awaiting your next post of pics and following this thread!!
Good luck with the new tank set up!
