Been a long wait, but the tank is finally here! New release Reefer S-1000 by Red Sea.

210g display, 55g sump with extra refugium/frag tank extension. 82.7" x 26.75" x 25.6".

Thanks to Galactic Coral for the ongoing installation. Took us 8 extra guys and some bruised fingers to get the tank inside. Before the tank went in I had the floor reinforced since the tank by itself is 800+ pounds and this is a pier and beam house. Should hold 5k now.

In the middle of building the rock structure with Cornerstone reef rock.

We had to stop for the day after we got most of the rock in last night, this was day two of installation. Needs a few more pieces of rock but looking good! Hopefully we can get it running by the end of the day today, a lot of equipment to mount before then. Tank will mostly be run with Ecotech and Neptune equipment and I'll post a full list when we have it all together.
In the reflection of the glass, I see an X-Wing, the Death Star, Rick and Morty pillows, and a drum set. I’m guessing this is your living room?! Haha

I get it. I’m 35 and I still love legos. I think it’s BS though the kits they have available today. I didn’t have near the options when I was a kid!

Yep, 33 and still add to the display from time to time. Yeah my legos as a kid consisted of "the tub in the closet" that was the hand me down of older family members. A jumbled mess of half finished and forgotten sets of unknow variety.

Haze still comes and goes, always takes longer with a bare bottom tank, but starting to look like a reef. Moved in some rock from another system, mostly random zoas and shrooms, but on the way! UV sterilizer gets here in a day or two and can't wait for it to be clear. Probably send off an ICP after it clears up and see what easier LPS and SPS I can add at that point.

Are you even able to swap that Vectra out for cleaning and what have you without spilling water all over the place?

ATO hanging over the edge like that makes me nervous.

The UV has a valve at the bottom to open and drain, then its just unscrew the vectra. The whole thing lifts away from the tank as well and it only hold 4 gallons so I can actually pick it up and take it outside if need be even while full. Made sure to go over through it before we put it in. Yeah probably going to get a thin piece of plywood to finish the shelf that the ATO is on to make it a little more solid, though it doesn't seem to be an issue. Trigger systems box and it seems pretty strong. David at Galactic Coral built the stand and installed it all so I'm pretty confident it will work alright. Once again he has done great work, but time will tell how easy it is to use lol.
