Does this mean another, bigger custom skimmer is on the way? Guess you'll have to start another build thread so we can keep things straight. :0)

Whoa! I didn't realize it was also sunk into the floor. Cool to see that construction has begun! Is this in a basement or first floor with slab?

It's in the basement fish room right where the 720 used to be! Thanks for your support! It will be 2' deeper than the viewing panel at floor level so it should give a cool sense of vastness when you look in!

@dca22anderson you are insane , love it though. I kept thinking about this built all day yesterday, it’s really wild and out there ! Keep going !
I may be but I'm still feeling the stoke making the change!! Thanks for your support it's going to be crazy! Should have the slab/base of the tank poured this week!!
