Hey all inspired by Ryan's (from BRS) 360 - I just ordered a custom aquariums 310-gallon tank and stand, a couple of 100-gallon cone bottom water tanks - Cone Bottom Tanks – Flat Top, and a synergy reef 72-inch roller mat sump! Upgrading from an overly engineered 24 gallon (running trident/apex/dos/reactor/fuge/skimmer/ato/LED/nero 3s/etc... hybrid balling method).

Dims: 84L x 30D x 30H

The plan is to picture frame this out in a wall in my basement (renovations starting soon) and build out a fish room directly behind the tank.

Reddit asked me to start a build thread so here we are! I'll be posting pics of my basement as walls go up and equipment shows up. The goal is to have it running by August.

Sounds like a nice build. On your custom Synergy sump, did you just have them increase the length or did you also increase the width or height?

Congrats! What's the time frame on the new tank?
