Very nice job on the home renovation!! Was the mural wallpaper? It looks like you have a beautiful view around your home too.
The tank is going to be awesome!! I love peninsulas and would like to have one some day but need a bigger house first.
I vote for the basement sump with the UV down there too. I think it only needs to be plumbed directly to the display for Dinos but you won’t have that problem using ocean rock.
All I can say is WOW! Great work man! Following along for sure. Great call on the wood stove and vaulted ceiling! Such a hard decision on the sump but it is a peninsula tank so if you can access sump from all sides that should t be too hard to work with. Can’t wait to see what route you go with this. Have you decided on lighting as well as what you will keep Sps, lps, mixed?
