Hi all, I am starting this thread to log the progress of my new tank that will eventually replace my existing tank.

New tank: 1700x800x700
drilled for 2x50mm overflow and 2x25mm returns
c2c overflow
50x50 stand gav
sump: 1000x600x350
skimmer: reefocto dnw200
lights: 3x150mh, 2x54 t5 in one pendant hood
return pumps: 1x haliea 3000 and life tech 3000
circulation: still to decide
kalk: reefocto 140 kalk stirrer conected to auto top up
calcuim: still to decide
chiller: haliea not sure what model on existing tank
aqua medic phosphate reactor

The tank was built by a local supplier to my specs, as I wanted c2c overflow and two 50mm drains and two 25mm returns. the sump is to accomodate a refugium (350mmx600mm)on the left hand side which will be fed from one of the drains reulated by a ball tap. I will attach some photo's of the progress so far and will update the thread periodicly.

Looking great. Love the dimensions. Looks like you already have a coral community. Would dig some more pics. Your pic shows 6 t5's and one halide. Have you upgraded this a well
