James404's 80g Rimless SPS Build

Hello! Thanks for checking out my newest build thread! To start things off, I'd like to set a little background.


About 5 years ago I broke down my 225g Reef Savvy tank and sold everything off. At that point in time my wife and I had just had our first child, and I really started to get burned out on the hobby. It felt more like a job than something I enjoyed. I had many ups and downs during those times, and it was extremely hard to sell everything off.

Fast forward to present day, within the past month or so I started to get the "itch" again to set up another tank. One night I woke up out of a deep sleep at about 3am, and my only thought was "I need to setup a reef tank again". Weird huh?

Of course to get started I had to get the "OK" from the boss (AKA my wife ) It took some convincing but she finally agreed!

So off we go!
