Smile New 75g Reef Tank Build

We've decided to get back into the hobby and build a 75g reef from the ground up. So far our we have ordered the following:
75g Marineland Tank
Trigger Systems Crystal 30 sump.
Reef Octopus Classic 152s skimmer
Rio 2100 return pump.
Jebao sw8 wavemaker pump.
Eheim Ebo Jaeger heater.
Odyssea 4 lamp t5 with ATI lamps.

We have received the skimmer and sump so far and hope that by the end of next week we will have everything else in hand. So many decisions and different ways to go. We are very lucky our LFS Leon's Lagoon is holding our hand and doing a great job at it. More to come....

Tank is up and running. 40 lbs of live rock, various frags of this and that but no fish yet. Did have to add a second heater to cut down on temp swings and removed filer sock do to salt creep. Plan on doing a 20% water change in the next few days. Also ordered a smart ATO,heater controller and true lumen actinic led fixture to compliment our t5s. Picks coming soon.
