Hello all!

My DIY in wall 75 gallon corner overflow reef tank. This build was in 2014

specs:
75 gall marine land corner overflow reef tank
40 gal sump / refug
146lbs of live rock
120 lbs of live sand
Lights; 2x Radion XR15pro
Skimmer: reef octopus classic 90

Here is the video of what the tank looked like then...

I started this build on 9-20-14 so I will first give a little background about this build. A high level summary and I can add more detail if needed/requested/wanted


Pic below shows how the location for my new tank looked originally

Everything within the closet removed and ready for the transformation to begin.

New door! to my new fish room...you enter from the adjacent closet

Newly custom built stand

Rough fit of the new stand and tank to make any adjustments.

I painted everything with a mildew resistant paint

Before drywall was installed

Inside the new fish room without drywall

I will work to provide an update. I just wanted to pretend it was 2014 again
