Hey Guys/Gals back at it, this time with a new tank!!! While I had nice success with my current 60 Gal Reef Savvy, Im looking to improve and avoid the pitfalls of the old system. The new tank is a rimless 66"x28"x22"tall which is roughly 176g Display with actually water volume of the DT being ~160 Gal. I plan to have a rather large sump so I'm quite confidant ill have around 200g water volume, which is one of my goals for stability. (Update: total actual system volume is 173 gal)

Here's a few pictures of the stand. The right door is the electronics compartment. The main doors are nice and large without a center brace which is awesome!!! I can also use the access door on the left. Going to wire the led lights to my breakout box so they automatically come on when any doors are opened.

Added lights to the stand the other day! We are making progress. Sump looks like it will be very similar to the brs sump and similar dimensions 48x24x15H

Currently just by plugging in the power supply but eventually my apex will auto turn on the lights as soon as a door is opened. You just use magnetic alarm contacts and wire them to a breakout box
