    Hey Guys...welcome to my tank build. It's been a long overdue project so I hope to get this one up and running asap. This is going to be my primary display tank in the lobby and it will be a mix reef system with but with big emphasis on SPS. This is currently what I have planned for the system:

    So cool, I've been waiting for this to happen. I have some nice LPS donations to add to it when it's up & running. It'll be barebottom, right? or will you do a faux sand bottom?
