    Very nice. Are you planning to close up the sump with cabinets or leaving it as is?

    Great looking tank!

    Can you give us a rundown of your sump and filtration?

    Dual overflow each with a filtersock

    1st chamber: Reef octopus Regal 250int skimmer(Up to 2400L)
    2nd chamber: 30 kg of live rock
    3rd chamber: DSB and refugium with LED light (Havent added the algae yet)
    4th chamber: 2 x sicce silent 5.0(5000L/h each)

    Total of 4 300watt eheim heaters in main sump
    1 of the return pumps goes through 2 x 55watt UV's and a chiller(Might need a bigger chiller). The other return pump pumps directly back to the tank for pods to be transferred from the DSB/refugium.

    2 x standard 3 foot tanks. 1 for auto top off and the other for water changes. The water change tank contains a 200 watt heater and air pump to keep the salt water fresh and mixed and has a pump in that directly pumps to the main sump. 1 of the overflows has been t'ed and has a valve to drain water from the main tank(So all that is just to make water changes fast)

    R.O unit with DI
