    whats up HVRK, it seems you guys have gotten a new home!

    Not sure how many old school members are still around (I see you Ross) but I was a member over a decade ago before leaving the hobby. Anyway I am working my way back into It and thought I would stop in and say hello!

    Hope everyone has been well over the years and looking forward to hearing about your tanks.

    I’m not an OG, but I’ve been here a while. Where you at and what are you looking to set up?

    I am located in Scarsdale and working on new build out for a custom 85g tank with filer room in basement. Check out the link to my build thread in my signature. Its a little slow going at the moment as I am still waiting on the tank to come in and I haven't had as much time to work on the filter room as I would like to but I am hoping to get some time down there this weekend.

    Dude, a filter room would be awesome. That’s my only regret. Now I have to deal with little space under the stand and a wife that is always asking why I have stuff everywhere!
    I’ve got a 125RR. I liked the 6 foot length for swimming room and the lower profile for dunking my arm in but since I lost my PBT, no one paces as much.

    Yeah I am really happy about the filter room but I had DT size constraints which was not my ideal design but I will take what I can get! Wish I had the space for a 6' tank, thats what my old one was and I loved It. My new tank is going to be 32" long x 22" deep by 30" high. I might be banging my head against the wall for going with a 30" tall tank but I had the space to go that high and I will figure a way to make It work. Just going to have to use my wet suit and snorkel on a daily basis.

    Aquascaping is also going to be tough but I am waiting for the tank to come in before I really start formulating a plan.

    Viewing angle will be great. I’ve gotten into trouble having my hands in the tank too much, so maybe with a deep tank it will be set it and forget it.
    My old boss had a tall tank and stacked his rock against the back. It looked great, like a rock back wall, and left some room up front in the sand bed for corals and inverts. Not sure if he was clever enough to leave a space in his stack for water movement behind but it’s doable.

    Hey Falco, great to meet you. I'm a new member and new to the HVR, but have been keeping reef aquariums for over a decade. Currently running a 120 mixed, focus on SPS, about 8 months in. Build thread posted. Looking forward to following the progress of your new setup.
