Well I didn't do a build thead as I wanted to focus on the actual build.:lmao: With two kids finding the time is tough and it took a few weeks longer then I thought.

The goal was to make the system as large as possible with out it costing me my marriage. In the end I went with a 36x36x31 cube with a basement setup. I wanted it as efficient as possible. Going with the foot print I did allowed me to get away with one 400 watt MH. While the my sume is in the basement I went with a Panworld pressure rated with gives me my return and enough flow to run my reactors. With gravity from my return I am running my Skimmer and provide flow to my Frag tank and DSB/Fuge.

I pretty much managed to get everything I wanted. I still need to build a canopy and install either either a doser or a Calcium reactor.. I have an Apex which I need to hook up along with my ATO set-up. Beyond that I just need to Stock it!!

Well here is a little reef porn for ya.

Wow, what a great set-up! I've never seen reactors and skimmer set up on a shelf like that. What are the 3 basement tanks--I'm guessing frag, fuge, and sump?

Thanks man, Yup the three tanks are for a Frag, fuge/DSB and Sump. They are 2-30 gal breeders and 1-75 gal for the sump.

Awesome plumbing work and work period, bb. What are your plans for stock?

Thanks, the Plumbing was a bear but went smoothly for the most part. I only had 1 major flood and 2 minor ones! lol

I am actually putting the fish wish list togeather now. As far as Corals I am going to do a mixed reef with mostly LPS and SPS. I can't wait for things to stabilize so I can really start shopping. Hopefully by then I won't still be Broke!
