    Well coming up to the 6 month mark now with my build and all is good, so here's what we got....
    Tank is a 7ft x 2.5 x 2.5 custom build with optiwhite front & sides with a 4 ft sump, tank is lit by 4 x Radion XR30's & a XR15 in the middle, flow provided by 2 Ecotech MP40's & 2 x RW20's. We have the whole tank run by Neptune Apex system with ph & orp probe. Down in the cabinet there's a Deltec sc2061 skimmer, Deltec PF509 calc reactor & peri pump, Aquamedic ph computer & co2, bubble mag reactor for rowaphos, separate reactor for carbon, media in sump includes siporax & live rock rubble, large uv & aquamedic ozone running intermittent. Large extractor fan to lower temp, with large hole drilled to external for cool air & to feed ATU pipes. Whole project is boxed in gloss white acrylic panels. Stock wise is genuinely too much to list, but a mixed reef of sps, lps & livestock.
