Just wanted to post a quick build thread of what I have been working on. I had a 55g and recently upgraded to a 120g with 55g sump. The tank is a dual overflow (1200GPH) AGA tank. I kind of wish I would've bought a tank with corner overflows but too late now! Tank is about a month old and I added my old livestock and some LPS, everything doing great.

Lighting:
-ReefBreeders 48" Photon
Flow:
-2x Ecotech MP40w ES
Sump:
-55g with 10" glass baffles
-Reef Octopus XS200
-~1.5in of miracle mud topped off with ~2.5in of bahama sugar fine oolite (50lbs)
-Mag12 return
-Running GFO and Carbon in same BRS deluxe reactor
General:
-250 lbs of Bahama oolite in main tank
-135 lbs of live rock from Live Aquaria
-Cheap custom made stand that get the job done, doors on 3 sides that are removable


Sorry for the bad pictures, taken with the Iphone 5..
