Starting a new tank 72 bow front planning a fowlr or a mixed reef still not sure Started cycle today and I have not aquascaped due to a lack of time and still not sure what I'm doing yet for the tank I'm not new to the hobby but I figure new people could learn something from the build and old timers like watching new tanks evolve. Here are some pictures and my equipment so far...*

Aqueon 50 watt heater for sump... I wanted it makes it more stable*

The pictures are water tested for leaks and sump levels*
And the fill with saltwaterautolinker.com autolinking image and addition of live sand/rock with everything hooked up except light the skimmer is just moving water not skimming or calibrated basically because I did not want to do it later... Hope u guys enjoy any questions let me know and I will post more pictures as things progress*
