Nice pics!
For the lights, did the Multi-light RMS track bow down in the middle section? or is it straight across?
I can't tell with the pic since some cameras view differently. Great post!
Oh, it DEFINITELY bows down in the middle. Slightly annoying but I'm not too worried about it really. May see if I can come up with something to help support it a bit.

Ah, it's been so long since I've provided an update.

The tank has actually been running really well with no algae issues or anything to really speak of at this point. (fingers crossed/kocks on wood)

I finally got the Algae Scrubber installed today, just to be a little proactive.

Right now I'm considering all of my non-essential plumbing and all of my wiring for my controller to be temporary while I get everything up and running. Then once I'm happy with everything, I'll get everything cleaned up and in it's final position.

Pics coming soon! Just picked up a Sony Alpha 7 with a Sony Macro lens and a tube from Avast!

Tank and stand are sitting in the garage. They look absolutely amazing. Current plan is to get everything organized and move them down to the basement sometime in September.

Sump and tanks from Advanced Acrylics also arrived, John did a great job as usual!

I'm currently in the process of setting up the 2 AIO tanks that will be used for fish quarantine and coral quarantine while the big tank is getting set up and cycled. Initially everything will be dipped and observed, with any issues being treated as necessary. I have plenty of time to observe as summer comes to an end and prefer to not over-treat if it's not necessary.



I've also got 3 of the new acrylic filter socks on the way from John, looking forward to see how well these work compared to normal socks.
That sump looks like a tank!

It's amazing. Just got some acrylic socks from John to match as well.

I'm going to start a new post at some point, but, I've actually got a new tank and sump on the way from AA for a growout/frag system.

Both will be Grey PVC + Acrylic with red glue.

60"x30"x16" tank and 48"x24"x15" sump.
