    New tank

    Just picked this up today. 20 gallon nuvo hydra26 with director. Got 20lbs of rock sitting in my current tanks sump that I will use for this tank. Going to do bare bottom frag tank. Going to try and get this set up this weekend to get the cycle going.

    Let the cycle begin.
    Quick question the tank is level both ways but the stand rocks a bit if pushing/pulling on it any tricks to safeguard tipping?

    Do you have a pic of the inside of the stand? May need some side supports.

    I added some racks today. The rocking issue is resolved also. I used a TV anti-tip cable from the stand to the wall... No more rocking.
