Look awesome! Is your tank going to be on a stand or free standing/hanging from the wall? Couldn't you have just drilled a few holes thru the wall and ran the pipes on the drywall side in the garage?

Everything will be in the garage and will be a through wall display. Just running the pipes would have been much easier. But happy wife means big system. Lol. there will be a complete 9ft by 6 ft deck in the garage built and enclosed once tanks are installed and in place. The deck is about 4 ft off the floor.

Area cleaned up and ready for lumber delivery tomorrow. First things first. I will build the deck, and then the header will be installed, and then I will start the stands.

Nice build.
One thing to consider though-that looks like an awfully tall setup. You may want to consider a pressure rated pump for the main display due to the head height you'll be seeing.
nothing in the plumbing drawing is really to scale. The tank height is 30" from top to bottom. Total head height will be about 9' from sump.
