Hello everyone! First i want to say sorry about my broken english as my second language if i make any mistake in writting or grammar please forgive me I will try the best i can if possible :) long and short story i have been debating back and forth on this build because we was planning to move but since plan have changed so let's make this build become real also the wife gave me permission green light signal go head and make this happen which is super excited :)
I have been start working on gears past couple months during the waiting decisions of my wife as i always want Happy Wife = Happy Life :p so all the gears almost done but is not complete yet still missing couple pieces. I'm planing to do Triton Method for this freshly build and also is my first custom and design for specific full Triton Method tank/sump/stand and light mounting options. I'm still waiting for shipment on OR/DI replacement filter kits and membrand so i can get freshly new water zero TDS from the first drops in this tank. Any suggestion or recommendations for the first start with Triton Method would be nice and appreciated. Thanks

New update: on rocks work. I have bought these real rocks for awhile ago it came from the ocean but dry out by the time it get to me so i just restart the rocks i Just don't remember the names of these rocks but it look very cool and big pieces. It been soak in bleach for 3 months and then de-chlorine 24 hours let it sit outside on hot day another week and soak it back in OR/DI water for another 3 months. Now it time to get the rocks to work and hopefully no pests or unwant nutrients in the rocks. Also there is one pieces costum rock i bought from a local fish store and i made all the holes to use for frag plugs as a real frag rocks. I wondering how i'm going to make the rock scape for these pieces. Any thought for rocks scape would be appreciated.

I have also tried looking for a custom reef cabinet local and around facebook. But no luck :D so i have decided to do DIY reef cabinet project! It doesn't look fancy but it can be functionable just finishing layout equipments drills holes last night also done the paint job this morning still waiting it to dry and definitely not a good painter :p

Working on lighting and cabinet: in progress putting all the toys togheter and cables are the huge messy problem. But slowly progress it is getting closer to the finish line :) also testing on lighting to see how it look another 2 xr15 is a must have and it's on the way to fill up the whole tank. Also more to come with brand new awesome custom made frag stands credits and thank you to @Red_Beard so stay tune with more pictures to come later ;) Thank you for following!!!

Finally the brand new dosing pumps got hook up and get online also using original jug custom for dosing container. Also with a pair spare pumps for backup just in case if there any failed and could have it replace right away so corals won't be suffer. As well with the Trident got online also but still waiting for bacteria to complete cycle which is will take another day or 2 to be complete cycle so excited to have a first time corals in the tank :)
