This is the basic list that is on the way. I will need to get a bunch of small stuff but Jeff keeps that in stock. I will be posting pictures as the work begins next week. Thanks to everyone that has helped out on getting the list of stuff together. Beer party at my house when it is up and running, if you want to drive to Murfreesboro, NC.

Good size tank to set up too. You will have all the makings there for a nice reef.

Starting out right -

Good work, good choices, you'll love yourself for doing it right the first time around!

Fill your tank with $5 bills, pour some gas in, light it on fire.......then you'll know the real cost of reefing.

T & S

Tank and stand are here. The sump is here also. I will have it fabricated by Thursday. Skimmer, LB's, bulbs and ballast have shipped. Canopy will be here tomorrow. Koralia and Rio are here too. Working on the rest.

Having a seemingly unreachable vision. Working extremely arduous against all odds. Embracing and protecting the vision turned reality. Living the dream.
Life is not so bad after all.
