I know it’s overkill on the rebar spacing but I only want to do this once!

What do you plan on lighting for something that deep?
I have 9 large reflectors, Galaxy Ballasts with 400watt MH lights but I may turn to those big Cannon style LEDs. Plan on running it with fish and live rock for a while to season it a bit before I crank up the lights for the reef...

you might like the orphek ones or I believe maxspect makes one. I've helped build with a couple public aquariums using orpheks and they're great just incredibly heavy and have to be mounted 2+ feet above
That’s a great idea!! Thanks for sharing! I’ll check into those...

Here is what the top 4’ will look like
