44 Gallon Shallow Reef

Just finished transfering from my RSF Nano cube, so it's very much a WIP. Lots of SPS frags to glue in place yet. Not as nice as most here but should just get better as pieces grow in.

Tank is a used beat old frag tank I resealed, drilled a few extra holes and built a overflow for. Was going to be a Peninsula but wife change our minds on that.
Built a Hybrid light with Alumabond and some scrap Aluminum I had in the garage. Houses 4 36" T5 sunblasters and 2 AI Hydra 26's, T5's controlled by smart plugs and Hydras with AWM.

Equipment list

T5/LED 36" DIY Hybrid fixture
40 Gallon Breeder Sump with 7 gal top off section
Jebao DCP 8000 return with manifold
Jebao CP-40 for water movement
Reef Octopus 110SS skimmer
Avast Marine K1 Kalk Stirrer
Apex Gold with Nexus 7 display

Few pics of what it looks like

Thanks chem-e appreciate it, was a few month build after work etc so I had a lot of time to figure out how I wanted it. Turned out close to how I envisioned it.
