Still connected to Minnesota but most of the time living in Vegas now it was better to get the big Waterbox 7225 to a new home as it became a bit neglected.
For the Vegas house I went with the slightly smaller Waterbox peninsula 4820 ( 47.2"×19.7"×21.7" ).


Tank is in transit and should be here on Monday.

Equipment list:
  • 6 Stage Deluxe Plus 150 GPD Water Saver RO/DI System - Bulk Reef Supply
  • RO/DI Flood Guardian - XP Aqua
  • Ultra Zero Utility Water Mixing Pump - Sicce

  • Skimmer: Mini Bubble King 160 Protein Skimmer - Royal Exclusiv
  • Controller: ProfiLux 4 - Black - GHL
  • Return: Syncra SDC 6.0 WIFI Return Pump (530 - 1450 gph) - Sicce
  • Lighting: 3 x Hydra 32 HD LED Reef Light - Black Body - Aqua Illumination
    HMS Multi Light Mount Kit - Aqua Illumination
    3dReefing 26 HD Diffuser
  • Carbon/GFO: Turbo Media Reactor Side Flow Nano - Lifegard
  • ATO: Osmolator Universal 3155 Auto Top Off - Tunze
  • Sand: Aragonite Special Grade Dry Sand - CaribSea
  • Rock: variety of LifeRock Dry Live Rock - CaribSea
  • Heater: 1 x 300W and 1 x 200W Titanium Heater Element - Bulk Reef Supply (not in stock at the moment)
Still debating about the powerheads…
I would like to try to have both powerheads next to the overflow box (1 on each side)

Being a Tunze guy I am considering 2 x Turbelle Stream 6105 Controllable (700 to 3400) - Tunze
Or
Hesitant as I never had good luck with those
2 x VorTech MP40QD - Mobius Ready QuietDrive Propeller Pump - EcoTech Marine

It will be a try and see game I guess as I am not sure if I will have dead spots at the other end of the tank.
Open to any input here!!!

I have the same tank - I went with two 6105s to start using the narrow nozzles. The flow will definitely reach the end of the tank, but I found the flow variance lacking. I have added two gyres, one on each end, which I understand isn't what anyone wants...but...

If you leave it with the two pumps and you need high flow, your fish will likely keep swimming in the same direction - that's what my fish did anyways.

Building the mounting arm for the Hydra's.
Don't know if they came out with a newer version but this one is pretty sturdy.
Just a little bummed you can't channel the Hydra 32/64 cables in the rails anymore. Cables are too thick.
They provide you with clips to attach them.
Doesn't look that bad and probably won't see them anyways once the tank sits on the stand.
