Cool Oh no! Another 90 gallon build thread!

Well I finally got my 90 gallon AGA RR today. I am SO happy. Upgrading from my 37 gallon bow. I have a long way to go, but here is my equipment list so far. I'll be building the stand and working on the sump/plumbing this next week.

55 gallon sump
Mag 7 return
Seio 2600
WON 350 watt heater

All I have worked on today is the durso standpipe.

Here are some pics, I'm sorry if they are too large, idk how to resize.





and a pic of my sun coral from my current tank



thanks for looking!

Quick update.. I forgot to mention that i am 16 years and doing this tank on a pretty tight budget. I plan for it to be a SPS/LPS tank with an RBTA, some clams, and various fish. Here are a few things that came in the mail today and some plumbing pieces that aren't shown. Thanks for looking

I tried out the Seio 2600 in another tank and it didn't really seem like it was pumping 2600gph. Were my expectations a little too high?

I think we're starting the stand this week, my dad said one of his friends could probably weld one out of steel. If that doesn't work out then my uncle will help me build one. I'm really excited. Also, I need to order an auto top off. I forget the website that most people get theirs from. Do any of you have the website or other suggestions?

Awesome tank, looks very promising.

I'm 16 too.. my parents think I'm pretty crazy too for how much I've spent on my tank, but its worth it.

Definately keep updating.

the mag box and those other ones look so old school...they should have some newer looking boxes

how much does that steel stand weigh?

it looks like a very nice job was done on it

The stand weighes about 150-200 pounds. Here are some more more pics from today. I'm sorry if they're large idk how to resize.



bulkheads just fit.







also, I tried putting the glass baffles in my sump which is a 55 gallon (48x12), but my baffles are 12 inches wide too, is there anyway i can sand the glass baffles down so they will fit?
