Looks nice, got a 45.2 the other day, same deal all the panels are damaged. Were all your screws a grip length too short and made of chinesium? Also did you replace the overflow seals and gaskets? I'm now worried that all the stock hardware is crap grade and I really dont want those to leak.

The plumbing seems ok...Better than my red sea to be honest. Screws were better quality than ikea lol. No issues with the hardware overall

Tank is full and apexEL is hooked up. What a pain it was to setup as a second apex. 

Also more goodies. The brand new maxspect gyre 350 arrived.

Nothing good happens fast in this hobby. This is also a second tank so it helps that I don’t have to rush. I can do things right this time

Started the cycle this morning. Two blocks of marine pure media that have been cycling for 3 months, a table spoon of ammonia and a bottle full of biospira. Ordered two more bottles of biospira. I dose ammonia daily for three days and the ammonia level the next day is usually zero.

Those Marine Pure blocks really work well for nitrates.  I only have one in my 130 gallon system and I actually have to dose nitrates or else my sps turn pale.

I'm really enjoying this build.  Those Orphek's are awesome and I'm excited to see what they do!

My three day cycle is done. Ammonia went from over 2 to 0 and my nitrate from 0 to 100 lol.
