New SW tank

Hello everyone,
I have been reading all of the great forums on this sight and have learned a great deal in the past month.

I currently have a 55 gallon set up running for 18 months now, started to add corals last month, tank is looking good. I also have a 45 hex FOWLR going for 14 months and all has been good as well.
My much needed questions are that I purchased a 220 gallon tank and stand today, not drilled yet. My 2 tanks have HOB filters so I need some of your expert advise on equipment to purchase. I do want to have this beast drilled and run a sump. I will do this build over the next 12 months to acquire the needed equipment and have made a lot of notes as I have followed along here. I appreciate any help, I plan to make this a reef tank.
Here is a pic, not bad for $100.00!!Click image for larger version

First thing I would do is leak test it. Here's a couple great articles on setting up a sump, the 3 part one linked at the bottom has a TON of good info.
