    I thought I'd start a build thread on my system. Deposit has been put down on a 72Lx30Dx24H with Starphire on front and both ends and the Reef Savvy overflow. The system will be plumbed for bean animal. Lighting will be 3 AI Hydra 52HD with HMS hanging system and the Apex Fusion controller. Ecotech MP40's for wave makers and probably a Sunpole pump. The back of the aquarium will be flush with the wall and the viewing room built around it. I will be able to access the system from the back as well having a custom hood/canopy made. A shout out to Torx for housing my survivng fish. The whole basement is being renovated at the same time. Next step get steel to fab shop for stand to be made then off for sandblast and powdercoat. I have 7-8 weeks to get ready. Framing and insulating basement now. Update to follow

    Aquarium placement.jpg Ok here is a pic where the aquarium will sit recessed 1/2" into the wall. Will build a custom canopy/hood with access mounted to ceiling. Plus I have access from the back which will be the mechanical room. All controls will be mounted on the right side rear.
