    And the glass is installed, let it cure till Sat or Sun, then do some more sanding and 2 more coats of paint plus one more set of braces on the top. Should be able to test fill mid next week.

    Finally starting to clear up enough to take some more pics. Would help if I could actually stay out of the tank, getting a few diatoms on the sand which is to be expected, all the test corals added so far are doing well and I added the first group of fish for quarantine last Friday. So far a Sailfin tang, Dusumeri, Blue Hippo, and Scopas, Majestic angel, Bluethroat trigger, and Princess parrot. I still have an Asfur angel, Emperator angel, French angel, Powder brown tang, Sohal tang (may go into the seagrass tank), Surge Wrasse, Arceye hawk, Harlequin tusk, and pair of Clarkii clowns in the next set of quarantine fish to go in, set after that in a different qtank Banana wrasse (may go into the seagrass tank), Banana fish, and Vlaminigi tang in that setup.

    First a pic of the 350g refugium/seagrass tank, first seagrasses should arrive later this week, the 5 gallon bucket is full of sand and will have mangroves planted in it. Once I get enough rock the bucket won't be visible anymore but need to find some more first.

    Getting clear enough I can start to take some pics of the corals and fish that have been added so far though it looks like to get good photos I will have to get in and do them underwater.

    Don't forget to remove the handle from that bucket.

    Man, this is really starting to come together quickly now. That 350 went up fast! What did you do to reinforce the seams? I think you mentioned gluing in acrylic (square) rods along all the seams.

    I ended up pulling a good deal of the top off where it was the worst and regluing. I was able to inject a lot of the other places but I will keep on eye on it, good thing is even if something does go wrong its right next to the floor drain.

    Do you have any sensors or anything programmed to notify you if something like that does happen?
    If the worst case happened and it busted a seam, what would happen? How much water could potentially drain from the system?
