I may have actually outsmarted the problem for once.. I simply took out the right center back brace... Imma slide the 55 in, then screw the brace back on.. Screwholes wont matter on the backside. Tank is currently sitting in my livingroom, right next to the 55, right next to the stand. So in other words, half my livingroom is occupied by fish stuff. Not kidding

First pic is the moonlights (of which one burned out, ugh) thatll be a mini project. Second is with whites and actinics on ( again, one actinic is out) third pic is of the clearance i have for my skimmer. I literally have maybe an inch of clearance between the bottom edge of the cup and the skimmer neck.

Lol i have a spare 125 if you get too jealous just repurposed my emperor 400 hob as a qt/hospital tank seeded filter. Itll hang right over the center refugium and help to setup a qt/hospital tank on any emergency bases. Gonna attempt to pick up second set of bulkheads at work today to finish sealing off the bulkheads.
