So life goal's change and decided to down grade the big tank

This RSR170 bare tank was from @xcaret and he got it from @kinetic because the overflow glass section was cracked upon arrival. I took this opportunity to make a diy stand that has magnet door and at my desired height instead of reasea's shorter stand and weaker material build.

Light mount is up!, I'm glad no one bought those light mount from me :p
who knew that I need it several years later down the road. and it holds my a500x just fine. Just need to print a light spill hood.

Build a custom exact fit sump with salvaged acrylic tank from @Kensington Reefer, it's not perfect, but it will hold water! going to test after the cement settles.

Time and cost. I work two jobs now that I was ready to quit the hobby until my wife suggested to get a smaller tank instead.
A softy tank is great for low maintenance/time. Imo though a smaller tank will take more time as you'll have to do water changes more often then on a big tank.
