2 quad gfci recepticals in wall...
1 dual gfci receptical in wall....
two circuits...
1 quad gfci receptical in ceiling...
2 gfci circuit breakers in box...
switches to quads are located towards the ceiling, so the cant be thrown"'accidentally."

Wow that looks amazing!
I love the peninsula style tank.
Just a thought you may want to create a large cave/opening on the right hand side of the tank to allow the fish to do laps, or get away from an agitated tankmate.
What are your plans for lighting this beast?

there is a large cave under there and several large openings in and out...the tank drains from under there so I left it wide open...

Marco Dry Rock just came out with "pillar" design rock...I am the first in the country to get them...coming today, will post pics later...they are flat-bottomed, ordered 2 around 16 inches tall and 2 around 12 inches tall...excited to see them...rodi water was to be delivered today..just heard it might be put off until next week ugh...before you ask, I bought the rodi as I did not want to make it at home- too time consuming and would tax the rodi system...bought 1,000 gallons...getting closer to becoming a "real live" tank...

A few questions:
1.) Are you going to cover the tank (jumpers), and if so with what?
2.) Are you going to have an ATO container under the tank? If so, how big?
I never posted pictures of the top...3 huge access ports, each 2 feet by 2 feet...the just cut the acrylic...each one must weigh 25 pounds....
