Hi all,
Thought I would start the thread early to get as much advise from fellow reefers from the start.

So week 2 of my house renovations, some call it a rebuild and the fish room is starting to be built





The fish room is 3500 x 2200. I plan to have a built in wall tank with 2 x viewing sides, front and right.

I want to try and keep total water volume around 1500 liter. So was think of a DT with the following dimensions.

1600 x 1000 x 800 water depth of 700.

I have a lot of the hardware and am busy with a custom build led unit 600 w.

I am running a 180 lido at the moment to keep me busy that will become 1 of 3 hospital tanks that I will run.



Will update as I go.

Will stick with softies and lps when getting the system up and running.
When nice and mature I might try out som sps. Will go for a wide variety of fish, love a busy active tank.

try keep a spot open for a sky light above tank, you'll save a tone of cash and your corals will love you for it.

I assume the little room in the first picture would be the fishroom. Sump RO etc would be there.
Where would the display tank be? In the room on the opposite of the wall next to the doorframe?

maybe a rough floorplan sketch. That will help guys to visualize what you are up to.

Sump that I had the pleasure of watching George and the team from pinetown pets build. Chipping in my 2 cents along the way.
