Hi there, Many know me already from Hobby Magazines and articles on the web, reading my ebook “Andre’s Reef Guide”, buying some frags locally in Houston and the local Reef Club as well from YouTube & Facebook where I share a lot of stuff around the hobby, and last but not least here on the R2R forum ;-) I got my previous 210G tank successful through the Harvey Flood while working on the tank in the flood waters. See this link for more details on that adventure on it’s own where Revthree started this thread. https://www.reef2reef.com/threads/our-member-psxerholic-is-getting-hit-pretty-hard.322824/ Here my previous tank presentation of the 210 from a while back: https://www.reef2reef.com/threads/psxerholics-210-gallon-reef-in-reefcity-houston.235601/ So after the flood I had to relocate my tank and decided to buy a 2year old temporary 300DD tank which turned out to be a bad idea, since the tank broke on the bottom seal and the entire tank drained within 2 hours in the night causing all kind of headache while the house was in the rebuild phase. Long story short, I fell in love with the Dimensions and got me a brand new water reservoir of that type. Now this is going to be the build thread for my new 300DD SPS tank which is going to be very challenging but likely very interesting. GOAL #1 – Andre’s Full blown 300Gallon SPS Reeftank within a week after the initial filling I need to get my remaining livestock back, I could rescue in the tank breaking event. Hence I will get the reef running asap, and do the furniture work while the system is running. At the moment I’m waiting for the Metal Stand fabrication to be completed and shipped. That I do to make sure the Manufacturer will cover damages by another tank break. The new tank is sealed much better and I could see the improved fabrication, however, many find it very risky. Well, me too !!! In the meantime I hope the house will be at least painted in the office room where the tank is going to be installed to avoid moving this beast around. Also I keep cleaning up all the equipment that I have, and intend to use for this setup. All my Corals I have at a friends local store, waiting for the return Current status picture One thing I did in advance was to install RODI tubing while the walls were gone, so the stand will have the RODI unit accommodated. Also a sort of Water change system is planned for as operated in my previous setup.
