180 Gallon ZEOvit Reef Build Has Begun

Hello everyone!

PHOTOS ON THE WAY!!! I have to adjust sizes...

Finally my life long dream is coming true, and after months of anticipation my tank, stand, and sump system have arrived! After years of viewing these threads and forums, I'm excited to have the opportunity to share it with all of you in a thread of my very own!
The aquarium is a standard dimension 180 (72x24x24) build by Custom Aquariums. Its ultra clear glass on the front and sides. I'll be using their siphon stopper returns, H2Overflows, and Stealth box for this build.
The stand is welded steel, powder coated, and finished "top and bottom" with painted boards. Looks very good IMHO.
I'm also using components of their modular Seamless Sump System.

I'm doing my best to wait for black Friday to purchase the bulk of my equipment for this build. Some equipment that will be included is as follows:
Lighting- Orphek Atlantik V4s
Skimmer- Lifereef
Return- Sicce SDC or Vectra
Int. Circulation- Maxspect Gyres
Control- Neptune w/ ATK, FMM
ZEOvit Reactor- KZ or Avast Marine Vibe
Heaters- jagers
