OK time for another picture dump. Tank came in packing was great. I did pay a little extra to have it dropped at the drive way vs picking it up at a Hub. No issues with glass or breaks.

I got right to work setup the sump and started playing with equipment

I loved the look of the wood through the glass. I will keep one little spot super clean so can always see it :)

I figured with the tank here now I would setup everything in its final resting place and suspend the light directly above. For the tack suspension I used some ac duct cables. Here is a link to them. Speed Link, Wire/Fastener, 6.6ft Cable, PK2 100lbs load figured four of then would be good.

For calcium reactor I built this up and referenced an awesome thread on parts and what you need to build your regulator. I will find it and reference here. Got this all ready to go!

OK another update tonight 20210219_195142_02.jpg
Final plumbing parts came in and recruitment begins @naterealbig Came over to help me get the tank on the stand and wrap up plumbing.

The plumbing was done relatively simplistic. One return two emergency drains gate valve on the drain.

I finally filled this thing up around April added curred live rock my brother had been holding for me and let run for a couple days. 20210316_213142.jpg

Started playing with the rock work.

3ft deep is just insane I love and the first time I have had this deep of tank.

This is what I ended up with.. I flipped the rock on the left. I think this will be really cool looking once the corals start growing in over the rock creating caves and tunnels for the inhabitants. 20210327_123339.jpg

Things started to come together and started on the calcium reactor setup. Don't need it right now but want to get everything ready to go. 20210506_180253.jpg
Got rid of the vertex that was in some of the originals and replaced with cal200. And installed some strip leds to light underneath. 20210501_214653.jpg
