So family unless there is another delay (Fingers crossed), that bad boy will be in my home saturday morning..... I will be transitioning all of my coral, live rock, fish, and water to the new system. While i was gluing my system together, i garnered a little attention:):cool:.

We are potentially one day away from the my install....and restless is an understatement. I plan on moving everything over to the new tank the same day. I have a question about plumbing. Ill prolly post this in a plumbing forum as well. My concern is while gluing everything in place...it looks like the angle is slightly tilted on the union connection to the bulkhead. The unions to the bulkhead are not glued but im connected about pressure from the plumbing that could cause a leak? Is this an issue?

What a busy day! Thank my lucky stars i planned. Still have work to do but here we go! FYI @Orphek... the optics of the Alantik 4s gen2s are freaking amazing! And this is a guy coming from Ecotech g4's. The shimmer, coral pop, and the par... these lights are amazing. The have a metal halide / T5 look to them. My fish even look different.

A few more updates.... my house is still in shambles! But for a very good reason!! Still have to clean up the some of the wiring and finish putting everything in place. I have another DOS unit coming in this week, i'm using ATI essentials, however my goal is to change a very small percentage of water every few months.

Looks fantastic!! Great job and attention to detail is amazing!
Thanks @ScottW ! Still have plenty of work to do. Will be adding some more live rock to finish my aquascape. What's impressed me the most are the @Orphek lights! The quality of light is amazing...pictures simply don't do them justice.
