Well, it's just on paper at this point, but come November...

Was in the hobby a decade, a decade ago. Things have changed. Help please.

Recommendations on lights, skimmers, sumps, wavemakers, and controllers are very welcome, if you have time to make a suggestion?

Budget to top end, i normally mix it up...

Was thinking i wanted to try to stick to a cohesive all in one system as much as possible. But open to suggestions.

Happy to buy used too, just message me.

Living in Gig Harbor Washington and will need live rock or dry rock, if have suggestions.

Fish in quarantine, coral in seperate quarantine, while waiting for new aquarium to arrive.

Wouldnt an internal overflow be a cleaner look on a peninsula? No visible plumping.
I hear you, but I'm just not into the internal overflow lookwise and taking up aquarium space wise. Plus there will be a hole in the wall for the overflow and plumbing. The wall abuts the fishroom :)

$3399.00 ;) they dont charge u tax unless in california, which i appreciate because its the correct reading of the law and internet sales and personal jurisdiction. (Its up to the buyer to pay the tax on their own because IM has no physical presence in my state)

Converting the garage in the new house into a man room. Combining the hobbies in a fun way hopefully: Brewing, distilling, reefing, and general wood working and welding.

Peninsula tank will be a room devider with a bar around it. Scratched it out on some graph paper, went to home depot, and started framing.

- Epoxied floor.
- Installed hot water and cold water lines all over.
- Built fishroom/multipurpose room.

- still needs trim and painting, and electrical, etc., but coming along...

Wife hates how much time it's taking.... But i still have a pulse! :)

Working to finish every weekend. Tank arriving in a couple weeks, likely, so deadline!
