Been eagerly checking this thread every day.

when do you think you’ll get water in it?
Thanks, it been a massive project that's taken way more time and money than originally anticipated. Hopefully the end result is epic

Sorry for the delays, I've been taking my time and not rushing anything. I dont want to have any regrets later about this build.

I hope to get everything plumbed this month and finish placing equipment in fishroom in its permanent location.

I have most all equipment except for apex controller, co2 accessories, ozone accessories, heater, and lights to fill rails on left and right.

Marco rock scape needs final cement to fuse pieces permanently, then I will fill tank with sand, and aqua scape.

Its looking like late October for tank to go live.

The details are the key, I’m currently looking for a drip tray of some sort to put under sump or whole fishroom. I don’t want a bunch of old saltwater accumulation under sump and mess up my floors over time. If I have a spill I want it to be easy breezy to clean and move on.

Agree. Details everywhere. Make life easy by spending up front money that will have long run payoff.

Final build stage here

Almost ready for water, waiting on a few things to come in and hopefully should have last water leak test done this month and then ready for RODI, sand, rocks and salt.

That is the last time all that gear will look that pretty. After this a life of grime hahaha!
I was thinking to myself yesterday when I was unboxing everything that It looked so good I didn't want to use it.
