I had been using my 600 gallon aquarium to grow out Shaks / Rays / Groupers for my 1800 gallon Predator Bay tank. Now that all the fish are moved over, that leaves the 600 gallon ready to be made into its own thing, a Reef Slope aquarium.

Aquarium Specs:

- 600 gallon DIY aquarium 72" x 48" x 48", tied into a 700 gallon refugium sump.
- Kessil a360we Tuna Blue lights, currently 4, may need to add more in the future.
- Waterflow: Jaebo Gyre pump (largest model) and multiple Sicce powerheads with controller.
- 4 foot tall reef rock emulating a reef slope type environment. Initial build mostly marco rock, populated with some existing liverock.
- Fish will include: large Angelfish, large Tangs, large Wrasse and other complimentary fish species.
- Corals will be made up of easy to care for soft corals that are noxious enough to not be picked at by the fish.

Here is the beginning of the tank:

I already watched this video before I saw your build thread :cool: I am looking forward to the progression on this aquarium, being such a unique aquarium I think this could really be an amazing tank in time. Good luck with the build!

More progress on the 600 gallon Reef Slope aquarium. While not a Reef Slope yet, it is on its way. Added in my first batch of fish from quarantine, augmented the lighting and water flow.
