Ok it's been a while since I posted but I'm going to update this thread over the next week....needless to say life is crazy.

Here is the day that we decided to move the tank inside. It took four people, one Kubota tractor, one duct life, two equipment rollers, and about six hours just to get it inside!!

Nice. Any info on who built the tank and dimension?
Yeah some tank dimension would be great. I am in the market for something of this size. Sound like from your efforts to get it from outside to inside, when I get mine, Ill have to pay for some friends to help move it...LOL

Unfortunately the situation with my tank builder was bad as they decided to go out of business when my tank was about 75% done. Long story short, I ended up getting one heck of a deal on the tank with a minimal warranty at best

Score! I'd take that deal all day long, those are the exact dimensions I want for a dream tank. Here is hoping your tank holds water for many many years.

Your thread is a little light on the details though. We need you to spill on all the equipment details.

Some of the equipment:

Maxspect XF350 @ 1
Skimz SS18.0 powerhead @ 2
Jebao OW-25 powerhead @ 2
Finnex Titanium 800W heater @ 2
Aquamaxx FC280 skimmer - may upgrade sometime
Noopsyche K7II Pro LED @ 6
Noopsyche P1802 T5 hybrid @ 2
125 gallon tank used as a sump. Bought baffles on Ebay. I'll make a bigger post on just this
Avast Marine ATO - love it
MaxxWater 6-stage RODI with booster pump - I'll make a bigger post on this with the reservoirs
Started with a Panworld PS250 return pump. It works nicely but kind of loud. I bought a Jebao DCP-20000 DC pump and its silent. I keep the Panworld plumbed in as a backup just in case
Over 300 lbs of rock from Reefcleaners
270 lbs of Tropic Eden Mesoflakes - love it

I think that's it for now. Ask any questions that you like and I'll do my best to answer them!!

At least update on the fish that I have:

- 4" Orange Shoulder Tang
- 4" Fowleri Tang
- 1 1/2" Tomini Tang
- 3" Ornate Wrasse
- 3 1/2" Melanurus Wrasse
- (2) 2" Mocha Storm Clowns
- 3" Orange Spotted Rabbitfish (Doubled in size in about 2 months!)
- 3" Diamond Watchman Goby
- 3" Female Bellus Angelfish (Had a little bit bigger one as well but she was very mean so she was given to someone with a more aggressive type tank

Think that's it! I have (5) Flame Angels and (1) Desjardini Sailfin Tang ordered from @Dr. Reef
