When did you start your tank? From dates and pictures I can have an impression that you started a month ago and now you have so many corals there? If so, did you just buy them at once and just put there?
Yea it was about a month ago, I upgraded from a 40 breeder and had all the coral in that tank.

Isn't it too risky to put all that stuff to such a new tank? I started my tank on thanksgiving, the same size and it looks similar in terms of scaping. I just add blenny and clown, no corals at all and I think I will not add any coral for at least a month, even anemone for clown. This is what I learnt here and from other sources. I am confused now :/ Are you just risking or is there a hidden path to achieve such a beautiful tank like yours in a such short period of time?

Don't get me wrong, I am not saying you did something wrong, I am just surprised that I see such a nice tank in a such short period of time, when all I can see on this forum is "patience is a key to success" :)

I would never do this on a brand new build but as the rock was already established and it was just a transfer of tanks plus my biological media, I feel it's perfectly fine. I used some of the water from my old setup and also added some new bacteria just incase. Everything is doing great so far and all my parameters are in check. Patience really is the key, I had to have that on my 40 breeder lol.

Hello all,

I am about to install the eshopps eclipse large on my marineland 75 gallon as well.
My sump is a trigger systems crystal 36, Jebao DCP-5000 pump.
I plan on installing two returns, Eclipse box in center of tank and a return on each side of it. Are you guys using 3/4 return lines?
Any recommendations on a quality bulkhead and return kit for the return lines?
Also, I am not sure of the diamond whole saw size i need to drill the return lines.

PS: this is my first post to R2R!

Welcome! Yes I used 3/4in return line and I purchased my bulkheads from either amazon or BRS.
Here is a list of the sizes you need for 3/4 returns. Looks like 35mm bit is what you need.

Nice build. You could have put a board across the top of your stand to have an even surface. That is what I did with my DIY stand.
