    Since it seems that everyone knows this tank and the unbelievable pictures that Chris has taken of it over the years I need ideas for the name of my build thread as I document it's new life.

    Tank was delivered yesterday, arrived in perfect shape and is in its final resting place.

    20190706_160454.jpg

    Things on the short list to do:

    1) Hang the Lights. Need to hang them from brackets on the wall as my ceiling has an electric heat mesh in it.
    2) Drill a hole in the floor. Plan to have 2 DOS units in the basement. 1 for AWC and 1 for 2 part dosing. Will be using 2 55gal Brute trashcans, 1 for RO/DI and 1 for Saltwater. Waste will go straight down the drain.
    3) Move RO/DI unit from under kitchen sink to the basement. Will also be adding a 3rd DI canister.
    4) Build storage unit for right side of cabinet to house all the Apex gear including a shelf for the Trident.

    And most importantly....... make the decision to go barebottom or not. I was dead set on barebottom but I keep going back and forth. This will be the 3rd tank I've setup with the intention of going barebottom but I still haven't done it. After seeing the beautiful pictures of this tank in it's former form I'm leaning towards a nice 1-2" sand bed once again. Decisions Decisions.......
