Looks great! ;Happy

What lights are going over the coral raceways? Have you decided on an opening (or even soft opening) date yet?

We will have XR30’s over our raceways. We are planning on an August 24th Grand Opening!

Any reason you went with sand instead of your normal bare bottom?

We like to mix it up! There are lots of ways to reef :) We don’t always go bare bottom. Casper’s reef for example is sand. We thought that this particular reef would look really good in this particular spot :D

Update time for WWC Winter Park!



Main fish system is now in place and ready for water!




Invert system at the back of the store is now online and full of water!




Hood for coral raceways is now complete! Radions are flush with diffusers mounted.











Coming together nicely! Facade for the coral raceway is next then just clean up, cycle, and stock!







Not long now! More updates on the way...

Thanks! We are opening up September 1st so be sure to stop by and check it out :)

Fantastic! I can't wait to experience the store! ;Woot

...although I thought that there would be a soft opening before MACNA. Forget the old adage "0 to 100" - it looks like you will be going 0-1,000 on opening day when MACNA is in full swing! Hopefully there will be a lot of energy drinks for your team!

No worries - thanks for clarifying. I'm sure that there are a lot of people who will be in Orlando for MACNA that will make a point of coming to see your new store! I know that I will make a point to get there shortly after you open (although I will probably skip the MACNA crowd).

Amazing jobs guys. Thanks for doing this build thread, very cool to see the progress. Looks like I'm going to be planning a family Sea World trip. "No no, you guys go ahead... Call me when you are done." ;)
 

Do you have a frag tank, frag rack or some other place for coral frags currently?
