Waiting on cords for my gyres should be here this week care of @CoralVue_Marketing love my icecaps.
Last fuge light should be here this week from @1ocean

Other than that will be trimming and finishing out the stand with some doors and end peices. Doors will hide all of the controllers and on the end with the electronics all you will see are the power buttons on the DJ panels.

1 x 80 gallon deep blue rimmed frag tank
1 x 60 gallon deep blue rimless nem tank
1 x 125 gallon sump / refugium
Frag lights are 8 x 54w T5
Nem lights are 2 x kessil A360WE and 4 x 39w T5.

Some things I would change but otherwise overall happy with it.

Today is day 1 of what I hope will be 365 days of posts on my new frag tank build.

Tank is a deep blue 60? gallon. Bought it used locally. The tank measures 48L x 24W x 13T. Internet says thats 64 gallons.
This system will have a 40B plumbed into it as a sump. For a total volume around 80 or 90 gallons.

Tank will be lit by 2 or 3 Kessil A360WE's.

Pumps, wave makers, skimmer, etc TBD.

I want this thread to be a from the ground up build. I know there will be days that my update is... "no update today". But hopefully this build can help some other budget builder know what to expect.

My goal for this tank is to grow frags to a larger (colony) size. I also want to be able to at appropriate times make frags to trade or give to fellow reefers. Im not looking to make any money at this point.

Thanks for following along.

Today's progress and pictures.
Started with 8 2x4s. The design for the stand is in my brain. Im not much for writing up elaborate drawings.
I've got 2/3rds of the initial peices cut.

I saw that you are curing live rock in the corner. What is the purpose of raising it off the bottom of the tank?

It's already cured. It's part of my filtration. It's raised to allow maximum water flow.

May need to dip it. Looks to have a macaroni worm. They are harmless, but may irritate things lol.
