What's up guys new to the forum, in the middle of selling of my 125 gallon freeing up basement space for my build. I got robbed almost 500 via pay pal from a scam on craigslist for a 475 gallon tank ( got re-imbursed) but the only good thing it did was inspire me to build a huge tank haha, most materials are purchased or ordered except for the acrylic I work in the construction field so most of my materials were basically free, but the dimensions are 108"w by 42'h by 56"d..which makes it roughly 1,099 gallons but after it's all said and done should be more like 994 gallons. The filtration system I just ordered from Natural Pet in Norristown, p.a consists of the WD 300 wet dry, 750 gallon skimmer, 220 watt stage 3 uv
sterilizer, 4500 gph
inline pump, the guys works with me on price a lot since it's my lfs
but he's gonna do the install hard plumping and setup for around 500 ( just labor). Construction starts this saturday pics coming hopefully but if anyone has any advice or tips with problems they had while building their own tank it'd be appreciated, thanks for the read i know it's a long one.
