It's finally here. My dream tank - 84"L x 42"W x 30"H 460 gallons! the tank itself weighs 830 Lbs. It's truly a beast, and a work of art! Big thanks to my buddies Jimmy and Ken (@Sisterlimonpot and @AZMSGT ) for their help today. the moving company was very undermanned... I'll be starting a build thread on it, but just wanted to post a few pictures.

Beautiful!

My dream tank is in that 350-450G range. How much flow do you believe you will get out of just one overflow box?
The overflow is 30" long so it will handle just about anything I can push through it. I'll be running an Abyzz A200 for my return, so at 100% it will push in the neighborhood of 3000 GPH which is plenty for the method I use.

Here's some pics of the moving in process, courtesy of @AZMSGT (I'm wearing the yellow hat). It's not in it's permanent spot yet as I wanted access to the overflow to do the plumbing. Once that's done we'll move into place. it was quite a challenge with only 6 guys and an 830 lb. tank going onto a 40" high stand...

That thing is a monster!!! Looking forward to the build!! What are the stocking plans?
Goldfish! :D It will be an SPS dominant tank. I'll be moving what's in my current RS 750 XXL into it with room to add!

This pic that @Sisterlimonpot took gives a good perspective on the size of this beast! That's my RS 750 XXL in the background for comparison.

Halides! Halides! Halides!

Congrats, loos awesome!
I'd love to do Halides, but I'm in AZ so the heat will be too much. I will be running 4 36" Aquatic Life Hybrid fixtures which will be perpendicular to the front long side. I will have 8 Radion G5 Blues and 16 B+ T5's
