25 gallon rimless cube build

Okay the tank is a tall cube 18x18x19

My plan for for filtration is aqua clear 110 ( I have a question about this in a bit)

I'm thinking for lighting the max spect nano.
I would take recommendations of other lights though since I haven't completely decided yet.

Tank is wet as of now, but it's just sand, live rock, base rock and ten gallons with a heater and power head.

Plan is to move the contents of my jbj 3 gallon over because I have no room for frags and the tank is getting over grown.

Now for my question with the filter, the 110 arrived today, and it is HUGE. Much bigger than I expected. Will my tank be able to hold this off the side? Being a rimless and all. I'm just worried I'm going to set it up and come home one day to the tank in a half because the filter cracked it.

Here's pictures of what I have so far.

I love my kesil lights I have one over my 20L and my lps 40b and I love the shimmer they give. For the ac110 they look big but there not that heavy check out inTank they sell custom media baskets and mods for the 110

I was looking at the kessils but for the same piece you get +30 watts and spectrum, and controllability of the dimming between time points.

Got my scape, background, more water, and filter running the last couple of days.
Scape looks pretty good but I want a few more small pieces.
Filter seems to be holding up, big enough for my heater so I really like it. Going to run chemo pure elite and purigen.

I still need a few more gallons along with a list of things to keep coral but as the tank cycles I'll get that coming.
I usually like to say the cycle takes about a month or so, so let it begin!

Maxspect razor nano came yesterday. I'm so pleased with this light, I put a few frags in last night and they were open today and then my local petco was having a sale so I picked up a Duncan and a zoa frag. Everything but the zoas and Duncan's are testers and when once the tank has proven itself will be moved back

Everything is opening nicely at 40% on both blue and white, should I ramp it up or wait?

You cant go wrong with waiting a few days. Just eb sure they are acclimated before doing so. They may decide in a day or two that it is too much. I had a simialr issue, didnt wait long enough and ramped mine up too soon

I turned up the blue just to keep the look I like going, corals seem to be okay with it.

Added

Added some new zoas a candy cane frag, and a pagorda cup. The pagorda was struggling in my other tank so I moved it earlier than I was going to.
Gonna wait a couple more weeks on Moving my precious acans and frogspawn.

Duncan has been closed today, think it didn't like the flow so I just adjusted.

Diatoms are going away, and hair algae has been popping up so I added 10 asterina snails, doing good work.
