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...

I will also bring the reef to the lights placing the high light corals up top and work my way down to low light style corals lower in the reefscape... It's going to be a challenge for sure but I know I can have success with the top 4' of the tank...

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
