i decided to put two cabinets either side to house all the electrics and controllers ,so decided to make two uv bonded glass cabinets to sit inside these (as i work in the glass industry) and also wrapped the sump in a blue film

@Richard Ivory Looks great, keep the pics coming. Might want to replace the main drain ball valve with unions and gate valve.

@Richard Ivory I can't get over how great that glass looks!

What is the plan for the bottom cabinets? Maybe a custom glass ATO reservoir and multi-chamber dosing containers?
this was all started in january so been up and running for 5 months now ,but just started this thread, there is a ato in the sump but its only lasting 3 days ,so i will be looking for something like tat in the future

Beautiful tank! Thanks for sharing.

So...apparently you have the exact same light that we call a "Reef Breeders Photon V2" over here? But, it's different in the UK. Interesting. Do you mind me asking what the light goes for over there $$?
