I started with a Waterbed 35.2 Build, but quickly realized it was not going to be big enough for what I want to accomplish. Thread located here.
I have since ordered a Waterbox Peninsula 4820 and it is currently being shipped. This is about as big as I can fit in my current living arrangements, so don't be surprised if you see an upgrade of both in about. a year lol.. I have done a little shopping so far:

That's a nice cash dump....man, usually I just wait and see with hardware. Sometimes a big tank needs very little in the way of reactors and the doo dads. I'm a big fan of KISS. But I'm excited for you and will be watching!

Assembled the skimmer today, and mounted the two MP40s on the overflow wall, one on each side of the overflow box.

Also got an OctoAquatics Sump Baffle. I think I am going to scrap the Algae reactor and have a small traditional style Fuge by dividing the sump chamber in half.

Trying to assemble a Manifold to run the UV and reactors. The piece just arrived so I can tie into the existing Waterbox metric style plumbing. Luckily I started my search weeks ago for the piece I needed.

Been busy with work so havent had as much time to play around with it as i would like. I got some base rock to place on the bottom, fresh live sand and the rock and transferred all the fish/inverts over and most of the snails i could easily grab. still need to switch my last hydra32 to the new tank but she is up and running.
