Hello fellow reefers, Happy New Year to you all! I am embarking on a new years journey, my new Lee Mar custom starphire 250, with custom stand and sump built by Chris Tran. I'd like to thank all of the members of Bar for the wealth of experience and knowledge available in these pages. I have recently finished Gimmito's huge thread (no small task), and am currently in the middle of several others including Coral Reefers home 120, JARs in wall 215, Brandies 210 to mention only a few. I have learned so much since joining BAR, and intend to utilize this knowledge in my new build. Thank you for your continued advice and support! As you may know from my original journal I currently have a 72 gallon bow front mixed reef. Very overcrowded. If anyone has had a 72 bowfront, you know how small the openings are in the top. Hard to access for cleaning and so on... To the build, my tank should ship on or around Jan 9 (very excited)! I purchased a 24" Ghost overflow from Reef Savvy which Lee Mar is installing for me. I will cut out the wall behind the tank to provide the space for the overflow to fit and allow maintenance from both sides of the aquarium. Custom sump by Chris Tran is in progress, hopefully will be ready in time to coincide with delivery of the tank. The way the cabinet is built requires that tank and sump be inserted from the back and then the entire cabinet pushed against the wall and connected.
