To handle that much water at SPS reef quality with that many fish is going to take one big filter setup.

hey guys sorry We haven't responded

Sorry guys that we haven't responded since the forum was down, so we are back at step 1, because while the tank was cycling last week, we found ou that the main glass was separating from the backwalls, so we had to drain the tank, the light where resolved by getting 2 massive selc cooling LEDS like I had said in the previous post he's a club owner so he incorporated more than enough light power and light depth for reefing, they are by Chauvet and its the slim parc 56. The stocking we had plan to go with was the tang because they will grow and cover some mad space, the filter system needed a new pump I will update you guys and post pics, but also the skimmer was upgraded from a 6ftx5g to an 8ftx7g remember this is custom made so its not like I can tell you how they perform, in my honest opinion the project is great but the expense tally right now is easily past the 20k mark, and the tank is not even stocked with LR nor with LF or LS, since we had the problem with the glass, as of yesterday the glass was getting realigned, resealed, and the wait again for 48hrs, and then cycle the tank,

That's mainly due to an undersized tank though which I don't think will be a problem here haha.

I agree, this is a good tang tank. Lots of hidey holes and they will love it. This tank. Is long enough for them to really fly.
