Awesome! Are you planning to drill the tank or use a hob overflow box?

Leaving it that way I plan on buying a colony or two so I don't want to make the main structure too big plus I want the fish out swimming not hiding in the rock

I wouldn't keep it in front of the window. Too much external light may heat up the tank or create algae issues.

Which sealer (caulking) did you go with and where did you get it? I'm about to start building my sump as well. Nice job on yours!
