Very nice Greg. What other equipment will you be running? ie. pumps, skimmers, powerhead, reactors?

At least your tank will be up before Cody's.

That's the way it goes. I build custom homes... well I do the structured cableing and or electrical and I have noticed over the decades that remodel projects generaly run 30% over time and over projected budget. I have only seen a few exceptions to that rule of thumb.

So far Mike, this is what is planned.
return pump - Abyzz A200 plumbed to Seaswirl
skimmer - Vertex Alpha 300
sump - Vertex Supra
circulation pumps - 2 Tunze stream 3's and 2 Tunze 6095s
chiller/heater/UV sterilizer - Teco
calcium reactor - Vertex
controller - Apex Gold (unless I get a new Apex)
lights - undecided

Yes, I have the older TR20 model. They offer the heater in the new model but I don't think they offer the UV.

Not having those issues here. Our contractor runs way faster thank expected.

Went by the house today. On Tuesday the contractor told me that he was going to have the electrical panel upgraded on Saturday. But I guess today is Saturday!

Work has slowed in the family room as the current focus is the bathrooms, windows, then flooring. All electrical wiring has been completed and walls patched and skim coated.
