I will be sure to follow your build thread too...Reef Savvy masterpieces come in all shapes and sizes and your footprint is going to be very impressive too!

So Reefsavy set this up in your house or just sent you the parts?

It's already shaping up to be a very impressive build. What are going to do for the equipment? Dedicated filtration room?

Thanks for the nice words and I promise to post pictures of all the equipment soon....oversized external skimmer and monster sump included. Not sure about the dedicated fish room just yet...right now it is the entire basement fish room unless the wife makes me finish the basement.

WOW, very nice. Is that the final resting place for the tank or does that beast still need to be moved?

It's been a few years but I am setting my tank back up and stumbled across your new build. I will be following this closely.

I am not sure if you remember me but I regularly bought frags off of you at local frag swaps.

Thanks for compliment and welcome! The tank is in its final resting place but I suppose it could be moved if needed.

Next up is my 250g sump I had built for the system (it measures 6ft x 2ft). George Weber of Geo's Reef built the sump for me, 100% custom to my specs and he did a fantastic job. My friend Kevin Cummins helped design the sump, and he did all the CAD drawings too.

Out of curiosity, are you going to enclose off that area behind the tank as a "fish room" or is it just going to be free access to the back?
