    Hey how are you going manage the cycling of the new tanks and the existing live stock for something of this magnitude? Will you be moving the original display corals or frag them up and start over, also the farm staying or being housed at the super center.
    Whats the Plan?

    We are going to start cycling some systems at the new facility soon. We have already started to break down (frag) the corals in one of our show tanks already (900g). The others will follow soon. The farm will be 1/2 of the super center, the plan is to have everything under one roof.

    Absolutely absurd, and you're goal is to be open by MACNA? That's a lot of work to get done. I can't wait to see it.

    Back again with another update on the megastore!



    An earlier shot of the pentagon stand arriving.

    The area where the Pentagon Show Tank will go.

    An earlier shot of us putting the stand together.
    [​IMG]

    The bottom pane of glass is now done and curing on the Pentagon display.
    [​IMG]



    Here is a shot of the crane moving in the glass panels for the 10'x5' display. It took 14 sheets of 8'x4' plywood to crane it in.
    [​IMG]


    Side panels are now in place.
    [​IMG]


    No caption needed for this one!
    [​IMG]




    Here is Tommy pulling some wires for communication. The store will have an advanced network system for all of our equipment and displays, and of course audio for shoppers to enjoy!
    [​IMG]


    The new front double door is now under construction.
    [​IMG]



    A birds eye view of the retail side. Coming together nicely as you can see!
    [​IMG]


    And a shot from the front entrance as you walk in the store, it's massive!

    Stay tuned as the updates are just going to get better and better!

    as you at in building, I'd recommend a pipe's line to all tanks to make water change easier and faster.
    be from the mixing station and water storage straight into tanks that need water change! or even top off.

    that's me thinking out loud, but what do I know :p

    it's wonderful setup and great looking tanks, I truly feel amazed and happy seeing it. may god bless your souls.

    Thank you! Yes it is!

    Hey Mohammad, great feedback. We actually already do this in our current store and we have plans to do it also in both of our new stores. You only have to twist a few valves to do water changes, it is a very nice luxury to have. :) The megastore actually has (2) 1500gal drums for salt and ro/di to supply the store top off/water changes and also customer water purchases.
