For anyone that may still be following I thought I'd update the progress.
I spent all weekend painting the inside. Now this weekend starts the build of the racks & stands for nine of the eleven tanks I have now or arriving next week. I have the lighting decided for the four coral tanks & one show tank. The show tank will have the new AI Hydras, two frag tanks will have the AI Sol Blues, and the other two will have the Kessil A360W on them. Ordered an MRC 5' tall four Beckett skimmer rated for 3750 gallons and one Reef Octopus Diablo 8" skimmer for the show tank. Already have two other skimmers for the frag tanks (a Red Sea Skimm 1800 & an Eshopps Cone Skimmer). Also my two 300 gallon vertical storage tanks arrived last week (minus the 2" drains they were supposed to have, so that's getting done by me later after the parts arrive from them) that will hold RO
in one & per mixed saltwater in the other. Also already received my 300 gpd RO
unit, I just need to install it after I get a chance to clean up the paint mess and finish all the carpentry. Lots to do lol.
