fish wall layout help

I have stated gathering up supplies for my 125 in wall reef build and plan on hiding all the equipment behind the wall its 11'x7' I really want the 6' long tank to sit in the middle of the wall leaving 2.5' on each side. I also have a 55gal(sump/fuge). 20h (qt). 30b (either dsb or seperate fuge), a css 220 imma upgrade to a reef octopus hard plumed to the sump, and perhaps a dosing station

when i built my in wall tank i built the stand all the way across from wall to wall. Without the tank it look like a bar with doors under the tank. I took measurments and made marks where the tank sits then used metal studs to build the rest of the wall. There is 2.5 to 3 feet on both sides of the tank for things i need to keep up high away from kids. The one side has a QT tank and the other has supplys. I put locks on the doors and i store stuff and all my filters and sump is under there.

Sorry wasnt sure what your question was so i hope this helps

They are metal studs made of Galvanized steel so they will not rust. The wall is also finished on both sides of those studs.
