I'm closing down the https://www.reef2reef.com/threads/75-gallons-of-no-excuses.564581/ for my new to me 120 build. Here's a picture tribute to some of the pics through the years from the ol' cloud drive. I'm moving on to bigger and hopefully better things with this new build. Sadly, I don't have any of the old corals after a completely avoidable crash.
Shutting down the 75 is bitter sweet, it was where I learned 90% of the reef keeping knowledge I know.

The new equipment not in the 75 thread is from the 120g buy-out.
I'm still running the 2 Rossmont Mx pumps and a waver.

I've decided that with this build I'm doing everything "right" I built the pillars by drilling the rock and using driveway marker rods to support. I built it out of the tank using a template to ensure I had enough space for cleaning the glass behind it.

Later today after all the extra water is mixed I am transferring everything over. I probably won't be able to sleep lol. I put the new pillars in the tank and I'm too excited ;Wacky :D

Tank looks great!
Thanks man! It was a solid weekend of work but I spent a week gathering everything and making sure I had everything on hand to solve any issues I may run into while setting up, leak testing and aquascaping. It made it so much easier than getting halfway into something then stopping because it's 2am and the hardware stores are closed lol.

Some seriously amazing pics man! I could spend some hours staring at that tank lol
Thanks man. I just got the camera a couple months ago so I'm still figuring it out that and using Photoshop for photo editing instead of website development. I definitely watch the tank more than the television lol.
