I'm so glad I have two of these Bad Boys ready and waiting for this build!-- one for each 150-gallon tank. (Rated for 300-400 gph.) I have no idea why you can't buy these anymore, in any size. (?)

New models came out with a smaller footprint for todays extra small sumps. Also DC controllable.

The new Fiji LoPro 2400 ghp 24" overflows just arrived today. Should be overkill (just like the over-sized Hydor skimmers) for 150 gallon tanks, but I want some messy-eater FOWLR fish. ;)

nice! fiji cubes sure do make some nice gear. I have there little peninsula nano and love it. have always been curious as to there overflows, I have hear goods things about them.

on a side not i am looking at a wall in my living room and was....maybe I could/should get 2 matching tanks from joe and to the same..haha

let me go measure it.... ha

I have gotten only as far as getting the two stands into the house, side by side. (The tanks are still boxed in the garage.) I dropped in my Seamless Sump pieces for rough-fit, and all is well. This job will take a LOT of plumbing, thought out in advance, because it will be my first time with a UV sterilizer and a sulphur denitrator.

BIG shout-out to @ Joe Glass Cages. The fit-and-finish on these stands is Grade “A.” I’ll get to the tanks after the stands are stained.
 

How do you feel about showing off your tank to "non-reefing" guests?
