an ats will replace the need for a skimmer.

It may... but i want my water perfect. A skimmer, ATS, and macro algae should work well for that from what I've read on other builds. Not sure I'm even going to do the ATS yet, just something I've been pondering.

Sweet. Looks pretty tall. How high did you go? Im thinking about going 36". It also looks like you got room for a 40g sump too. Im probably going to do that too.

There would have been room for another 40b under there as a sump, but that wasn't in my plan. I'm just sticking with the 20 longs. It's right at 48" tall, so 64.25 or so to the top of the tank. I love it. Just got done putting rock, fish, and corals in... pics will be up soon. Still haven't gotten rid of the algae completely, but I'm hoping the 20g remote refugium will help with that some.

Cool. I was thinking 36 might be a little tall but I think I'll be really happy with it. Yours looks good. So I guess thats what that other stand is for. Your gonna have a refugium overflowing into your sump?

Yeah, the refugium will be on the right. I'll try and get a pic with the tank on there tomorrow, but it won't be set up until mid week because I don't have my bulkhead yet.

Here are the pics..... I've got everything kind of temporary right now until I get my sump hooked back in, but the scape is pretty much where I want it... I think.
