Before I post pictures I want to thank you all for your posts and discussions. It has taken me over a year to get everything situated and decide what to get equipment wise. I haven't talked much and I'm sure I will be here shortly. Thanks again, now to the pictures. :beer:

Thanks, yes I'm planning on doing a reef and a few fish also. the temperature has been running 79-80.7 which is kind of bugging me and that's with no lights yet. I'm going to try a fan over the back corner and watch over the weekend.
