definitly, love pics:) nice setup:) just wondering, did you intend to make the DSB that size and the skimmer compartment really large? i went nuts on the size of my DSB and arranged my compartments so stuff had a little bit of room and and as much DSB as i could manage. Very nice though. What substrate have you got in your DSB?

I used carib sea aragonite in my DSB. As far as the sump design is concerned, i was a bit pressed for space because of the size of the skimmer, although it does not look like it - the skimmer fits quite tight ...

AWESOME start there, Takumi! I so GLAD that you have everything sorted before you start adding live stock.
Please be patient. You still have a while to go before actually adding corals / fish.....
Good luck with this mate!
