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...

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.

That is a beautiful tank! I cannot wait for the build!

A couple questions, what are your plans for lighting, and how do you plan on scaping/placing corals, etc, when the tank stands a few inches taller than you?

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
