I thought I'd drop in and share my 75 gallon build. I started this about a year ago and am getting quite close to having it up and running. I currently have a 32g ext overflow FijiCube that I won from BRS two years ago. As a noob, @rtparty helped me get that tank going and it's been an overall success, but I'm ready for something bigger.

Current 32g FijiCube - **Don't look close, you might find aiptasia**

When I built the stand for the Fijicube, it was built with the intention of being reused for a 48" tank. That's still the plan, but I need to do a little bit of freshening up. Inside, there is a partition to help separate the electronics from the sump. That is going to come out as well as the current 20g sump to make room for a 29g sump. All electronics are going to be moved to a separate cabinet that will be placed to the left of the stand. I will also be repainting the stand inside and out and adding heavy-duty leveling feet. I didn't know how badly uneven my floor was until we started to level the stand, and I just don't want to mess with shims this time.

So as for the 75, here's the plan. It's going to be a mixed reef tank, but predominantly SPS. Below is the planned gear for this.
Tank:
75g Aqueon Aquarium
Eshopps Prodigy M overflow
Single 3/4 return

Sump:
29g Aqueon Aquarium
Fijicube 29g sump baffle kit (filter socks removed to use filter roller)
Aquamaxx AF-2 Filter Roller
Aquamaxx FC80 Skimmer
BRS Mini GFO Reactor with Sicce 1.5
Sicce Syncra Silent 4.0 with possible upgrade to Sicce SDC 6.0
Kamoer X1 Pro x3

Flow:
x2 Tunze 6095

Lighting:
x2 Radion XR15s (1 G4 Pro, 1 G5 Pro0
x2 Reefbrite 36" XHO Actinic LED Bars
Ecotech RMS Mounting System

I'm sure I'm missing a good few bits of information, but I've gotta run out the door right now and will update the build more as I have time!
