Kept it. It's the 30" though so I have a feeling I made need to get the 24".
Won't know for sure until the tank and stand arrive.
Luckily a local club member has a 24" he's getting ready to replace so I can pick that up from him if I end up needing it.

UPDATE 3-31-16

I seem to have a thing for laser cut logos.
My GHL Doser 2 arrived!
I will be running Triton on this tank so this will be used to dose the Triton Elements.

You have the skill of being able to pretty much take a picture of anything and making it an interesting photo to look at.

I bet you could even make a close up of egg crate look amazing! Haha kudos

Funny you should ask because I just found out yesterday that it will be.... VERY SOON!
That's for the tank.
The sump hasn't even been designed yet. But should get built in April. By our local craftsman, Building An Obsession.

The pics in post #10 are pretty much it. Just a bunch of colorful adirondack chairs, dining table, matching blue umbrella, dog pen (good for when the kids are out of control ), my grill, and some pots with dead plants.
I'll post if we do something new but we first need to focus on the front yard.

So we'll be doing this together!!! Good start so far. I finished my lights today. The stand is next. I'll be putting my thread up soon. If you wanna cheat, the tank and sump are in the tank thread in the lounge. Remember the tanks we were talking about??? None of them ended up being "the one."

CONSTRUCTION IS COMPLETE!

If you go back to the very beginning of this thread I showed some pics of the house before we moved in. And now here you can see the changes!
A whole new office space was created with some new partial walls, dining room moved to the bay window area, and kitchen cabinet extended with new pantry and built-in microwave.
The original microwave over the stove will eventually be replaced with a vent hood that actually does it's job as a vent.










And again, here is where the tank will sit...

So we have the same couches and color but I have the chaise on both sides for a U. Based on that alone, we're best friends.

Ha! Room Store FTW.
Not what I would have chosen for this house (they moved with us) but I don't mind seeing them take a beating on a daily basis from the kids and dogs.

I dunno. I got it off a groupon like 5 years ago. It's not an aeron or anything fancy like that, but i don't see any name on it.

It will be a while before we get to that. We just got hit with a $5k repair bill to bypass the one cast iron pipe that is still left under the foundation which decided to start leaking.
