Hello, I'm very new to all of this, but am excited for my next journey. Here are some links to part 1 and 2 showing where in at and where I'm going. I started my first tank July 4th. Now I know this hobby is for me, it's time to move ahead. Join me.

So frame is built, doing a water test all this week to make sure no leaks. Using syncce pro 1000. With head of 5 feet should be 500 gal per hour. Sump is a trigger crystal 30. I'm hoping Santa will bring my a nice reef octopus for Christmas! Wiring will be next as well as the outer wood to inclose framing and hide the insulation bottom. The t5s will hang from the upper supports shown. The supports will also have nice wood hiding the 2x4s.

So tank is up and running. Everything is looking good. Added some new coral. I feel like I'm on the right path on this build
