    We have a custom builder that makes all our tanks. He built the fish system for us as well, have you seen it?

    Ohhh we're working towards that :) there might be a homewrecker tossed in there as well

    Ok ladies and gentleman, So here is a little update. We have not added any more corals yet, most likely next week we will start adding a few sps frags. We just finished the box for our wire management. We will be adding apex with a monitor on the top of the box with all the bells and whistles in the next few weeks. Ecotech is making us custom MP60 controllers so we can mount them in our box. It was a little tight but lucky for us one of the guys on the team fits in the back to pull all the wires through;Woot.

    Ammonia 0
    Nitrite 0
    Nitrate 3
    Alk 7.9
    Cal 430
    Mag 1300
    Didn't check for pH

    We're working on that nitrate right now but it should be down soon and once we are loaded with acros it shouldn't even be an issue. We added a couple more acros in there and we purchased 20-ish mini colonies of high end goodies for the 600.
    Gonna get some pics today :)

    Can't wait for the pics! What's your ideal nitrate level? I thought it was best to keep some in the tank?
