Back again with another thread update for the Williamsburg Downs WWC mega store.




Two of the six 10' coral raceways going into our retail side.










Two 3' x 3' anemone/clam/etc. holding tanks will go at the end of the glass raceways. All tanks will get vinyl on the back.





A shot of the farm stands for the coral raceway vats. The amount of coral we can aquaculture in this building will be epic!








Can never have enough counter space, plenty of places to work and frag!

Drone shots of the megastore for comparison. We're not quite as big as the Publix Grocery Store, but we're getting there! Give us another 5 years... HAHA









Brand spanking new A/C units installed and are at the ready! Overkill? For sure! But, you can never be to sure.







Lagoon Reef vinyled up! It's going to be a jaw dropper for sure!

What's the likelihood of stopping by and "run around like a hyper kid in a mega candy store"? I may be flying over in roughly 2 weeks time or last week of July ... On a serious note ... a quick peek and a Hi? Thanks

You never know what will happen. ;)

No chance, very sorry, we know how hard it is to wait... Now the OG store is still open and we would be happy to have you come by :D

Another update of some of the progress being made at the megastore!


Custom sumps for the coral raceways on the retail side. We designed the stands and sumps to sit at a low profile and still hold enough water and have easy access for maintenance.







Coral raceways for frags now have vinyl on the back and are being put in place. They will allow top down and front view of the corals.











Drywall around the 10' x 5' x 4' show tank is complete. It's looking spectacular!














It has begun! One of our grow-out coral propagation systems is now online and beginning to cycle.














Speakers for the retail music system are also going in for our customers to enjoy.

I got to see your sumps when they only had 2 sides glued on. I had the same builder make a 60x24x13 frag tank for me. I thought it was big until I saw yours in a photo sitting next to mine, thanks for making mine look like a nano lol. I look forward to visiting this beast of a store! Thank you for everything you are doing for our hobby, it is great to know it will be around long after importing corals ends!

What lights on the show tank? Anxious to see the par for the bottom if they are going to be radions. I’m struggling with intensity on my 36” deep
