OK, so we can finally get this party started!!! The tank is here and more equipment is arriving today from BRS and VCA! I am also ordering a lid and media tray from @cromag27 at Octo Aquatics!

The plan for this tank is that it will be a clown/nem tank, but let's be real. I'm a coral junky, and this will probably have lots of other stuff in it too. I'm already imagining a nice plate coral or acantho, some acans, some blastos, maybe some zoas... and I should probably add a goby in there too, right? ;Smuggrin

Tail spot Blenny! I would add one of those, one of them Nemo things and even a sant sifting starfish if you plan to keep the sand clean and even like a cleaner shrimp or something! Love these tanks, picking up a 5 gallon AIO to turn into a Shroom tank possibly

Thanks! I'm still deciding on livestock. The clown pair is a must, but debating which gobies/blennies to add along with them.
I'm super excited to see this unfold!!!!

Are you going to run the filter sock or are you going to get a media basket? I love my inTank media baskets.
Thanks!! I'm thinking of going with a media cup. I ordered a lid and media tray from @cromag27 at Octo Aquatics, but maybe I'll need to order a media cup to go with it too.
Nice tank. I really wish my end table would have been big enough for the 25, had to settle for the 15 but they are very nice tanks with a better than average baffle system in the chambers. Looking forward to your build.
Thanks! I appreciate you following the fun!
Don’t forget the battery backup for weekends!
It's a home office, so I hadn't worried about that, but some form of battery backup is still a good idea.
Looking forward to following along on your build!
Thanks!! :cool:

This is shaping up to be a nice build.
Maybe I missed it, but what light are you planning on running?
I'm going to be running a Noopsyche K7 V3. Pics coming this weekend of the light! It's here! I just need to get it mounted. :cool:
Are you planning on keeping corals?
Yep! I'm planning on this being primarily for the BTA and clowns, but I'm already planning to have several LPS corals in the tank. I'll probably add a bunch before it's over with. I'm not very good at the whole "everything in moderation" thing. Haha!
Following!!!

Can you hook us up with measurements with that light/mount. Not looking for par just measurements for how off center it is. Low-light corals on the end higher light corals on the return side?

I need to post an update. Got a few new toys from Octo Aquatics that I need to show off, and a lid that will be arriving soon!

UPDATE! Here are the new accessories from @cromag27. Media cup to replace the filter sock and a media tray for the center chamber. Absolutely great quality acrylic work from Matt as usual! The lid will follow soon! I've been playing with ideas for the aquascape. Can't wait to get this thing wet!
