So im moving into a new house and im excited as hell cause I can get a bigger tank ive had a 36 gallon tank a 60 gallon corner tank with a refugium and skimmer but had crappy lighting now ive got a 30 gallon biocube because I needed to downgrade. so with all this said I want to start a build I want to make this set up everything except the literal tank. im not sure what size I want yet but I know its going to be at least 60. So id really like some opinions on what I should do or how to go about it. im going to do the plumbing the Stand I want to make my sump. everything. but I don't know where to start. is there a certain way I should do my plumbing? a certain tank size I should aim for? Id love to hear some opinions or even show me your builds. this is going to be my little side project to really make me think and use/develop my skills in this hobby.

***Ive only had one of these tanks at a time

Bigger is always better! Are you thinking 4ft, 6ft, 8ft? Tanks? Built into wall? Peninsula? So many options. I would recommend browsing members build threads for ideas.
Definitely be a tank Im thinking like 90 gallons but it depends on what I find im not a millionaire yet so im doing what I can with what I have.

I definitely will be lookin around at everyones threads to see what's being done out there
 

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