Lovely living rooms!

A nice tank outshines a great tv almost any day. 3 tanks reminds me of multiple tvs at a sports bar. Something to watch for everyone.

Your RedSea rocks Peter!

Why the drop off tank? Would think they pose some unique challenges- lighting, flow, and cleaning.

I guess for all those reasons?

I enjoy building mixed reefs the most. So all those challenges are there already. In a drop off tank all those challenges become freedom and you can play to what the corals naturally want.

The 2x4 framing is up/down, inline with the wall that the aquarium will be against. I believe the floor joists run perpendicular to that
You should be golden! Besides looks like have 2X8 joists which would be more than enough!
