Alright here we go again

I found this 90 gallon corner online and it was perfect for an unused corner in our house

the tank is acrylic so I now the struggles there with scratching it so I'll just have to be extra careful with that.

this tank needs a lot of elbow grease and TLC but the bones are good

the background is some kind of styrofoam and I plan on taking it out.

it is plumbed in the back corner but im not
Sure what I'm going to do with it.

it came with a fluval FX5 canister which I plan on using to start it and upgrading later.

I have a small 5 gallon I'm going to put underneath start it up as well and tie them together.

let me know if you have any suggestions.

a lot of work ahead of me

Got all the sand out tonight and took out the styrofoam back.
I think I want to glue rock to the back of it.
But the biggest question is this overflow.

I'm not sure if I just cap off the drilled holes and bring the tubing over the back or if I should put an overflow in. I know the right answer is overflow but I'm not sure if I want to get that crazy.

let me know if you have overflow suggestions

cleaned the tank up today!

looks pretty good. Has a few scratches just need to figure out how to fix those.

also there is some acrylic stuff that clears up the acrylic so I need to look into that.

stand and canopy are all painted.

hoping to move the tank in.

next is figuring out how I want to plumb the tank.
