Hey Everyone! It's that time for a new build thread. My 90 gallon acrylic has started popping seams on the top showing seperation and it's time to start a new build thread. I'm going from a 90 gallon 48x18x24 to an 80 gallon shallow reef 48x24x16. I'm super stoked for this build as it'll be my second build so I can take into consideration all those wants and needs from my first build and incorporate into this one. I will be building the stand and adding a nice piece of oak wood (4'x6') under the stand to spread the load. Going to build a standard 2"x6" stand with no center brace to open the sump area up a bit as well. Ordering tank tomorrow and should be bringing it home next Tuesday or Wednesday. Doing new sand (non live so as to not cause a cycle from whatever die off is in the bag) and transferring all rock I can. The rest will be plumbed into a 20long under the tank to keep the same bio filter I have. Stay tuned! It will be a pretty quick build as I have 1 week to finish the flooring and stand before tank arrives. Once it's here, shooting for a toga tank changeout in 24 hrs. Lots of coffee and cursing to come! Oh, and pics all the way as I go!
