    I'm thinking about buying a SCA 150. Can you post a recent picture from a wide angle? :)

    Can't wait to start my 150 builds but I got a Rimless 150 and pre-drilled for a 20'' synergy overflow box that i WILL BE running. CCustom Sump. and all TUNZE Pumps and for my main, I decided to step away from Eco-Tech since the Vectra pumps are for the birds. I went with the new Reef Octo Vars 8 2700gph. Also, I will have a saltwater mixing station on the other side of it to run my Neptune DOS for AWC's and a whole bunch of other goodies.

    Woah baby....it’s been awhile since an update!!!

    Tank went through a serious lull and I was reinvigorated and I’m back on track and the tank is jamming!

    Still have the 8 bulb ATI that has two ReefBrites on it. That glow is actually a reflection of my camera lens porthole. I’m a rookie at taking pictures!!!

    Luckily I have other goodies here that travel faster than someone can run with a few frag cups

    @BfishLpond78- I just got done completing my SCA Custom Rimless 150 but my 150 does have the #eurobars since I am mounting a pair of new @Orphek Compacts since my system will be a more sps dominate type tank. v
    1st I have to move my SCA 150 and then I can get started on the plumbing the drains and returns! Any reason why you did not use a Spears Gate Valve vs using a Ball Valve? I am using a 1.5inc gate valve which works a lot better than ball valves especially for this specific application/
