redsea's 220 Gallon Build

So it is now official, next week I will be getting a 220 gallon tank!

I will be making it a reef, and any suggestions on livestock would be appreciated! Thanks.

well the 220s are outside measurments so on the inside they are 29" top to bottom :P so the math works out to 210 gallons but its actually called a 220 mrXs 265 is the same way so the inside is around 250 gallons
