    Well, let me introduce my self my name is Anthony from socal. I have been addicted to reef/salt water since 1983. I have kept many different tank and the current set up is a 265g leemar. I'm moving to a new house and I told my wife it's going to be difficult to move a 265g glass aquarium so she said then buy a new one lol....but her demand is it's has to be a focus of the new house so need to be nice and custom.
    The new reef will be a spectacular 96"x36"x24" acrylic peninsula on a custom steel white stand with RE dream box design custom sump from John at Advance Acrylic. I have seen many different tank but his tank is exceed all of my expectation. Since I go all in with the tank, stand and sump I will do the same with equipment.
    I like montipora and meat corals so this tank will be dominate by those 2 gene. Here are some sneak peak of what to come in Feb........ sump.jpg tank.jpg sump.jpg tank.jpg sump.jpg tank.jpg

    so far I have been collecting equipment for this tank some old some new but this time it will be high tech.
    I want to automate 90% of the task so all I have to do is cleaning the acrylic.
    The heart of the reef tank will be an Apex neptune
    Flow will be 2 MP40QD, 2 Tunze 6105 and 2 sea swirl return flow with a red dragon 80w pump.
    Calcium reactor is a GEO 624 with cole palmer 7250-70 brushless motor
    Water change is done by neptune dos
    Cal and Mag are dose by 2nd dos
    Skimmer is Bubble King super marin 250
    1/2 tradewind chiller
    2x500w titanium heater run by ranco temp controller
    GFO is run by GEO 420 white reactor
    Carbon is run by 2nd GEO 420 white reactor
    Zeolite is run by MRC reactor
    Aqua UV 40 watt
    wave line DC10000ii running the manifold,UV and chiller.
    2x55g RODI and salt water mixing.
    8xkessil 360we and 2 blue actinic LED
    Also different module from Apex like AFS, WXM,PM2, Break out box, Avast ATO.....

    After seeing John from Advance Acrylic at reef palloza we decide to do custom round corner and round top and possible the first white back with white overflow to match the sump and stand. I can't wait until Feb 1 to pick up the tank and stand to start so I can transfer my current tank over.

    that's pretty much most of the equipment that I will use for this project

    Looking forward to your build. I saw John's sumps at RAP. They look killer. Was that your sump he had at the show?

    Yes it is. Most of the sump on the market is very narrow I want wider so I can easily fit my bubble king skimmer plus 3 reactor so the sump is 30"wide

    I love all the cord management, doser tube 5 total and 5 different size of pipe return so I can accommodate most of my equipment

    Since my theme is the RE dream design, I design my tank with a white back and overflow. The steel stand and sump are also white. All the edges of the tank are rounded corner so no sharp edge.
