 Looks  like  a  great  start.
 I'm  just  wondering  about  the  sand  bed  though,  it  looks  to  be  too  shallow  to  be  a  DSB  and  too  deep  to  be  otherwise.

 Get  a  RO  unit.  Using  corporation  water  is  not  going  to  help  in  the  long  run.  Phosphates  will  be  high  and  fighting  algae  break  out  is  not  going  to  help  either.  
 
 The  more  the  number  of  power  heads  u  add,  the  power  you  are  increasing  the  temp.  Keep  a  check  on  it.  
 
 Just  add  one  wavemaker  and  see  the  flow.  Add  another  only  if  required.

 HI  to  add..
 Checkd  the  water  a  few  minutes  ago
 
 SG:  1.023
 Ph  :8.4
 Ammonia  :  0ppm
 Nitrite:  0ppm
 Nitrate  :  10ppm   Sad  
 
 Well  my  first  fish  (one  from  my  last  tank  )  Oscellous  clown  would  go  in  tomorrow.
 In  the  hospital  tank  too,  the  nitrate  levels  were  about  10ppm  until  frequent  WC  changed  it  to  zero..
 Hope  he  would  do  well..
 
 wish  me  luck

 Since  your  going  for  a  FOWLR,  you  don't  have  to  worry  about  nitrates  until  they  get  over  30-50ppt..

 It's  going  to  be  a  great  FOWLR.  I  like  the  open  look  and  its  also  good  for  the  flow.  Its  going  to  look  great  once  you  start  stocking  the  tank.

 HI  
 Friday  night  I  dropped  (not  exactly)  -the  oscellous  clown..  It  nose-dived  into  the  rocks  to  remain  secluded  for  the  rest  of  the  night.
 
 Saturday  morning,  the  tomato  clown  goes  in....  evening  the  two  clowns  are  seen  together  in  a  corner  of  the  tank...  late  evening..  both  of  them  exploring  the  new  set-up..
 
 Parameters  still  the  same..  no  bio  load  actually..
 Tomorrow  the  Koran  angel  moves  in  ...

 Hi  sameer
 
 Used  15MM  glass  for  the  base.
 12mm  for  the  sides.
 
 Braces  on  sides,  bottom  and  top  as  well
 Make  it  as  strong  as  possible.
 
 The  stand  is  an  iron  angle  stanf  of  1.5"  well  welded  with  six  feet  to  support.
 Please  ensure  that  the  bottom  support  bars  are  of  same  thickness  nad  is  suported  at  the  ground  level  itself.
 
 The  plywood  work  is  done  around  the  stand  and  boy,  it  sure  can  handle  double  the  weight  it  handles  currently.
 
 If  youa  re  planning  a  discuss  tank,  you  can  reduce  the  depth  thgough...
