Out with the Old...In with the new Reef Aquarium...Yeah!!

Been wanting to upgrade for the better part of 4 years now. I've been rocking my 45g bowfront since '96. It's been an awesome tank for me and i've loved it. But it's just not big enough for the kind of fish i'd like to have. So i'm moving up to the next step and finnally found a reef aquarium that i like for cheap(er).

So, here's the old setup


And here's the new All-glass 75g reef ready tank with internal overflow and pre-drilled. A little bigger in comparison eh?


DIY sump here i come...yeah!


I'm pretty excited about it all. Not excited about how much filtration and lighting is going to cost but it'll look nice when done.

Pre-drilled tanks are so much nicer, I just got one as well a couple of months ago. You will love it.

So how did you light your bowfront? I have a bowfront too, same as yours, and I would like to upgrade the lighting on it.
