110 gallon corner tank

my plan is build one more shelf/storage unit to house mor fish items on the bottom and move the tool box to the other side of the room finish off the electrical then move on to the plumbing and then finish the skin for the stand an canopy ( will make it easer to work on with out the skin

i figure maby by january ill have saltwater in then sand then my rock then som fish if all goes well !!!!

andy was buy yesterday and dropped off the float valves (thanks again andy) those will go into the sump and topoff water container

ive still got lost to do but being x mas time and we will be going out tof town i wont have a lot of time to work on the tank and id like for my family and extended family to have a nice xmas holiday due to all things that have happened in the last few months so i wont bee that greedy!!!!! on the tank and myself ill post pics and updates as the time progresses so keep an eye out on this

thanks for all that have looked

If I told my wife that I don't think I would have the tank up and running, because she is really not that interested in it.
