The progress is amazing! my only suggestion is to move the live rock away from the glass side walls to make sure the glass won't scratch. Other than that it looks great!

post #11; picture #3

i dont know if i personally would be able to sleep at night if my tank was on a stand like that. you may want to fix this before moving forward. the board below the tank appears to be warped or bending under the tanks weight. just might want to consider something alittle more solid because i would hate to see you loose a tank over a faulty stand.

Thanks for the reply.

The thing u have mentioned is not board but 2 thermocol sheets and bro its not bending but it is loose (the lower one). The tank is stable on the stand.

Hey guys i have a news i am getting a length 37 x breadth 18 x hieght x 25 (old freshwater tank not in use for long time) i think this makes it 70 gallon if u multiply the total with 0.00433. My friend is ready to give me at any price i feel like to give him. It comes with a wooden stand also. Tonight i will go and see the tank and I will post the picture tomorrow.

Please reply my queries mentioned below :
I want to buy it but if only i can keep yellow tang and other tangs in it.
is it possible to keep a yellow tang in 75 gallon.
Will my whole cost increase like saltmix, lights, powerheads, protein skimmer size, sands,water.
Can i shift everything from my old tank to a new one like sand rocks etc with same water.
Will the tank take more time to mature.
Will the overall cost increase a lot.

Awating for your replies very eagerly.

But how i am going to tell it to my wife, she might kill me.lol.

In post #13 I see Tubastrea, which is a non-photosynthetic coral, meaning it does not utilize light. Are you feeding it?

You can be ok, ok being used loosely here, to keep a tank in a 70 gallon... but your tank is really short and because of this i don't think it would do well in a tank that size. I have a tang in mine but it's a 48in and i do plan on upgrading when I move out of my apt (I'm looking at either a 300g or so). There's no way he's going to be in this little thing permanently. My tank is a 55g but it's also longer then yours is. You can keep it in the tank, but short term if you want it to live its full life healthy and happy.

And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea...
