I'm looking forward to seeing these in person. If anyone in my area wants to drill one for a small overflow/sump (which is a HUGE benefit to these tanks), I can drill them with my dremel diamond bit. Piece of cake, takes about 10 minutes.

Would be tremendous benefit, but not allowed for contest(1a).

Just keeping track of my stuff in this post:

-1 Current-USA 18'' T5HO Fixture (used-reef2reef.com $30) <--not the best fit but I will figure it out!
-1 Koralia 2 (used-reef2reef.com $25)
-1 Aqueon 10 Power Filter (new-Fosterandsmith.com $15)
-1 Jager 50 watt heater (new-Fosterandsmith.com $15)

So far: $85.00 total in Hardware

I already have 20lbs of live-sand and a 5# piece of live-rock from my main tank in there right now. Going to give the tank a few weeks to settle in and then going to start adding some corals and a few more smaller pieces of live-rock.


EDIT: Per a reminder via foresteronw, I have removed the Live-Rock, Water, and sand from my 10gallon tank. Water and rock went into my main tank, sand went into a 5gal bucket with a tad of water over it to keep it wet. Didn't realize you couldn't put any of this in there until March 1st. No worries, can't wait until March 1st!

AdamT, if you want to be eligble for the contest you're going to have to take the water sand and all that out of it. You can't set it up until the day the contest starts. Jeb updated the rules to make them more clear on this.

ahhh well crap. the rock was easier to get out of there and I just added the water back into my main tank (thankfully I haven't topped off in a few days on my main), as for the sand I put it in a 5 gallon bucket with a bit of water on top of it. Hopefully it stays "live" until March 1st.

Keep the sand indoors and put a powerhead in there with it near the top to keep the water stirred around. A few hermit crabs in the bucket will help ensure the bacteria stay live (provide an ammonia source for the sand).

Does not matter what kind of tank it is as long as the Volume is 10 gallons. Does not have to be a AGA tank if you have something else of something that you built feel free to use it as long as it is 10 gallons.
