180 tank, 100 gal frag tank, 100 gal sump and 33 gal refugium are up and running. I added a 3' tall skimmer as well.

Everything was transferred 3 weeks ago everything made the transition. I have my Yellow tang in the frag tank awaiting the sailfin and yellow eye kole tangs to clear QT.

I will get some updated pics

Very nice! We just started an upgrade on our 120 also to a 180. Livestock goes back in tonight and I can't wait.

Congrats on the upgrade, your stand/canopy came out beautiful!

Ok, here are the pics. Some are decent some are not

I took some close-ups of the live stock that I need to upload to my site. But here are the setup pics.

I only have a percula clown, flame angel, royal gramma and a yellow watchman in the tank. I have my Yellow tang in the frag tank awaiting the other tangs to be added all at once. I have 2 YT damsels in the frag tank too. I can't decide if they will go in or not.

Hope you like ...

Wow! Thanks so much for sharing the setup of that!!!

My friend has a 65 gallon reef, but just moved into a house with a perfect spot to set something like this up. Any chance you could draw out a schematic of your plumbing? It looks pretty wicked

Looks great! All the hard work is now paying off. How about some close ups of the frag tank? Thanks for the update.
