** SCA 150 Rimless build **

''First, I would like to start with my motto when it comes to this hobby - I ALWAYS use quality products, I believe that 50% increase in coast is definitely worthwhile, even if you only gain another 5% of the product reliability especially if you have a mature tank with years of time and effort invested like many of us do. Keep in mind that your tank is a place where water and electricity come together''

Ok, let's start this thread, with what size and kind of tank I went with for the new build. After going back and forth with a RESEA 725xl or an SCA 150, I decided to go with the SCA tank! They are all made with Star-fire glass and their tanks that are 12mm thick and made very solid. I knew from all of my experience that I wanted to try a more SPS Dominate type tank this time around w/ a minimalist type scape! Also, SCA builds a really awesome stand and I will be floating my LEDs from the ceiling... Here is the tank I have chosen:

As far as my overflow box , i went with a 20'' Synergy External Overflow box since I wanted to run a bean animal type system for my 150: Also, went with a Synergy CL-44 Sump and a Matching 10 gallon reservoir that currently in production and should be done in the next 2-3 weeks. Cant Freaking wait.
Here are a few of examples but my sump will not have are refugium and its a CL-44 not a CL-34.Plus, I will be running one of Buds Turbo Algae Scrubbers, like you see in attachment #3.
