***Skip to page 33 to see the Concrete Tank build - 5000 gal***

The time has come to build out another sweet large reef.

Here is my last one: Anderson Family Reef - 1200 Gallon Reef


This time I will build out an in wall 720 (8'x3'x4') and a 740 (9'x4'x33") in the fish room.

Looks like that will be a nightmare to get into with the height and being that close to ceiling
I have 2 feet above the tank for access, I agree with you so I’m looking to make the 720 a fish tank with coral spill over and make the 740 a full SPS reef, they might both just be mixed... still thinking through it. Good observation

Would make a beautiful FOWLR tank, it’s a monster :)

I have a few skills so I decided to cut out the center overflow and biggie size the bulkheads for the closed loop. I also bought the tank used with a small ding and some scratches so I put together a plan to fix those as well.
