Daryls 120 gal tank

Hey guys thought I'd start bit of a journal/ info thing on my tank. As some may know iv upgraded my tank over the last 3 months and this is where I'm at with it it's a 42x36x20 tank with a 36x15x15 sump. I'm running 165 watt leds 2 fixtures and I'm picking up a 400watt halide tomorrow.
My main goal is to have a mixed reef with a vast range of sps in there also. If you want any more info just ask here are some pics enjoy Click image for larger version

Nice looking set up!

Thanks guys I'll be running the halide for 5 hours a day and using the leds as well. When I start it will be a week running them 1.5 hours then 3 then 5 to try acclimate the corals. I got some 20000k globes that I'm gonna run and see how they go. Here are a couple more pics Click image for larger version

That looks awesome. You should come and build a stand and hood for our 75G! My boyfriend says he's going to do it about every other day for the past six months Looks great though!

Looks great. That's the kind of thing that I want to do. Late to the party though...did you fabricate the mount yourself?

Very nice, love the chalice collection! Can they all touch or are some chalices different?
