Looks awesome. I can't wait to get my 280 going.

It's funny how these tanks don't look very big in pictures. But then I see one in person and I can't believe how big they are.

I hear ya...pictures can be decieving. 280 will be a nice tank. I had a 90 gallon and then a 125 before this aquarium and have found that maintainence and maintaining parameters actually gets easier the bigger you go....everything just gets a little bigger...
