AAA Dragon 360g white RE theme build

Well finally the time has come, my dream system is here and I have to say look sexy even without a drop of water. A big thanks to John from AA u went out of your way to assist and make changes to my dream design. However the result is spectacular.
I always dream of a large peninsula style tank and thanks God for this opportunity for me to purchase a new house and with the move my wife agree to a new system for the new house. She wants it to be the focal point for the house so I went all out and design a one of a kind tank to please her and that's not easy. The dimension is 96"x36"x24" which equal to 360g. All edge and bottom are rounded acrylic and since my theme is similar to the RE dream design everything is white from sump, stand to tank. Here are some pictures and more will follow when I start plumbing

Yeah, I miss those guys too as I remember each and everyone. I hope I'm wrong, but I think I remember reading that Edward, aka Invincible569, passed away.

Great looking tank. I love that. I would have gone with a peninsula but it wasnt going to work with our house.

Hi Cody
I got lucky with the space the new house has a perfect window with 96" length divide the living room and the sun room so this is a perfect fit for a peninsula style reef tank. Now I can enjoy the tank from the living room and the sun room.

Did you redo the window so that your tank can fit into the house?
Great looking build. I can't wait to see the progress.

Thanks everyone, well normally I will take more time to plumb however I have to move my old tank over so my tenant can move in to my old house. Steve(Laverda) helped me so much with this build and both of us finished the plumbing in 12 hrs. So here are some pictures of the progress today
