Default Woohoo! Tanks In!

Tank arrived yesterday. It's empty but it's in. The fun starts next weekend when we start plumbing.

Thanks Jason. Neither can I.

I have noticed one major problem with my plan. I wasn't prepared for how wide the euro brace would be and the impact it would have on trimming. The combination of the height and the euro brace are going to make this tank difficult to scape and trim. It doesn't help that I'm only 5"2 either.

On the other hand, maybe this is a good thing. I'll be less likely to get in there and demolish the aquascape like I did to the 55 this weekend.

That's the plan. If you look to the left of the sink there is a dedicated cold water faucet for the tank. We are going to put a timer on it and have it add approximately 5 gallons twice a day depending on the evaporation rate. Excess water will overflow into a drain under the sink.
