My 55G Setup!

Last Sunday, I went into the LFS. They were willing to sell me a 55G AGA Cornerflow with accompanying custom-made stand and canopy (absolutely gorgeous) for $500. The original price was ~$575, but they cut me a 15% discount for the package--$502.

I went with a 36" stand, because I'm tall and hate having to look down into short tanks like 55s. The canopy is about 12 or 14" tall, and both are finished in cherry.

Of course, they called multiple times and the company hasn't answered. Since it's a local guy who builds them and ships them from NC to GA, we're pretty sure he was on vacation for the week... I'm off to an auspicious start! :x


My gear list (thanks to you guys for helping me assemble it):
- Tank: 55G AGA Cornerflow
- Sump: DIY from my old 20XH
- Return Pump: either a Quiet One 1200 or an Eheim 1250
- Lights: 4x54w IceCap SLR retro kit
- Powerheads: 2xKoralia 2
- Skimmer: Euro-Reef RS80

I'll update as soon as I get more, and with pics of everything.
