600g zeovit Elos peninsula RE dream box

First of all I feel privileged to set up this tank for a friend.
Where do I begin????
How about custom starphire Elos peninsula tank 96x48x30 which equal to 600g. We debate between Elos and reef savy but at the end of the day nothing can beat the starphire glass of Elos. Rolex use this glass to make their watch.
He likes my sump so we decide to go with the biggest Royal Exclusive sump with Bubble king supermarin 250, 3 reactors and 2 red dragon pump.
For piping I recommend the ultimate carbon fiber pvc pipe to take this tank to the next level.
Chiller/heater is the silence Italian teco tk6000.
Flow will be 4xmp60 and 2xgyre xf 280 the tank will have Sps on top and lps and others down below.
Custom ATO, Dosing container , controller box and fish holding tank are build by John Advance Acrylic.
All fitting, plumbing parts and miscellaneous items are from BRS.
Controller are the profilux ultimate white set with 3 ghl doser since we will run zeovit.
Lighting are from 12 radion g4 pro.

We are waiting more than a year for Elos to complete the tank and stand and it's on the way to America. We are welcome all comments and hopefully will answer all questions regarding this build. There will be quite a lot of pictures coming up but for now some teaser shot. I can't wait until next Friday when Elos truck arrive.

This is our inspiration




I rather not discuss cost but the tank is so worthed. If u look at Elos sapphire glass compare to starphire like regular glass.

For those of you not familiar with Elos tank they only make up to 245g for sale to public. This tank is 600g we have to wait for 1 year to get deliver. It's only a hand full have made in the world with this size.

What's the thickness of the glass on the tank? Is it rimless?

3/4" all around a euro brace. The volume is too large for rimless. It's not safe.

I rather not disclose but just say I can buy a Mercedes just don't know which model yet. The build is in the beginning stage which mean more things will pop up. The plan can never be exact to the reality.

Can't wait to see this project come to live! Will the BK superman 250 be big enough for this system?
