Project Cube Completed *pic

I moved the 30G oceanic cube from my office to my house today and tied it in with my 105G main tank. It was a beast of a project but its flowing now and everything appears to be in harmony. As for the future, I still have no idea what im going to do with it, but the bump from 135 to 165 gallons feels good. Probablly means I am sitting on around 145 after displacement.

Sorry bout the pic, the halides on both tanks cut off before I got finished cleaning up and around to taking a picture.

Thanks! My tanks are actually in the basement, but its a lot like a living room. I have renovated it into my little hideaway/theater room. Luckily the laundry is in another little room down here so I have plumbing right next to the tanks for making RO/DI and a big closet with a concrete floor where I hold all my pre-made SW.
It feels like christmas eve here, I can't wait to wake up in the morning and see it finished with the water cleared up lol.

I used to have my tank in the basement with my home theater stuff. I loved it too. I could have lived down there

I moved recently so my new basement is unfinished. I need to design up something I guess

I know the feeling, when we bought this house the basement was a concrete shell with three screw in light sockets and an extension cord run from the garage above lol. Its fun though, just think about the magic words "Big, in-wall, reef" hahaha

Thanks Lando, your post the other day about frag tanks motivated me to get off my a** and get it done.
Oh, it wasn't 100% silky smooth, just found out the bulkhead in my overflow must have come a little loose cause I have got some slow drippage down the back side, praise the drip loop!

Here are a couple pics now that the lights are on. Please excuse the mess. There are some cords yet to manage and the coral placement in the cube is just "tossed them in" right now. I won't keep that acro up against the glass for long =)
