Hello all and welcome to my 100 gallon mixed reef tank. This is my first time building out a stand and going with a large size aquarium. My last tank was a small 30 gallon saltwater tank with a few corals. This is going to be a very slow build as I can only work on stand on weekends (few hours)... Her is a list of what I will be using: SCA 100 gallon custom rimless tank (48 x 24 x 20) 40 gallon DIY sump Reef Octopus 150 skimmer 2 Gyre 250 pumps. yes I said 250 and 2 lol I will run them at low speed so reduces noise, Reef Octopus Varios 6 return pump Finnex 300 heaters (2 heaters) 2016 Apex Apex Dos dosing I went with Rock from Billy's reef connection and i have it in water cycling I am using Current USA pro led lights till i can get better lights. In few months I build out the floating canopy with retro t5 lights and led or I get ATI t5 lights. I am not a fan of the disco shimmer of the led lights. I started building the tank stand out of 2 x 4 and most of the frame is complete. I will post more updates of the frame and stand soon. Next I will start on the sump build and update the thread. It's going to be a tough ride for me as I am kinda new to all this and just fascinated by Reefing and Fish.. Since I did not have a table saw I build a jig so I can get straight cuts.
