Ok - I have been doing a build thread on that "other " website. So, Figured with a bit a prompting from a certain Member/MOD I would have a build thread here as well. First some basic background or the plan: After much researching, etc. I decided to purchase a 150 ( 60 x 24 x 24) starfire tank from SC Aquariums. It is a custom build due to not using their center overflow/plumbing systems. Instead I had them move the Euro-bracing up to toward the top of the tank ( normally they recess it nearly 2 inches - so by the time you install an overflow your waterline sits 2-2.5 inches below the top of the tank). I also had them drill the back with 3 holes for 1.5 inch Bulkheads. I am having the internal and external acrylic overflow system with "Bean animal" plumbing made for me locally. It will be a 48 inch long smooth weir internal overflow ( maximizing surface skimming) with a 30 inch external overflow - with 2 x one inch drains for the full siphon drain and trickle drain, and 1 x 1.5 inch emergency drain. The drains will lead to the basement where I will have a 40 breeder sump tank holding the filter socks, media reactors, and skimmer which will gravity drain -> to a 75 gallon refugium which will hold several macro algeas and live rock , -> which I will have plumbed to a Reeflo Barracuda pump. I have flex PVC for the plumbing and using true unions before and after the pump so I can clean/maintain it. I will be posting pics, and posts on the mistakes made already to help other NOT make the same mistakes.
