    Just thought I would share a few of the pictures. Only took me about 12 months to finally get this up and running. Thanks for the awesome tank!

    Looks great. Two sides of the aquarium will be inaccessible, hope that won't cause pain.

    Hey 12 months is an instant in this hobby when setting up a tank, better to get it done right than get it done :)

    Dimensions are 60x35x20" with effective length after subtracting the overflow and dry boxes of 52".

    I'm running an ATI powermodule with LEDs (first gen). Bulbs are 4 blue plus, 2 actinic, 1 coral plus, & 1 purple plus.

    I had it built to fit tight into the space. It turned out perfect. Though getting the sump in was quite a challenge.

    Tank looks great. But having restricted access to the sump like that looks to be a pain to maintain depending on how you have it setup.

    Is that a Vertex CaRx I see in the sump?

    Sump access actually is not that restricted. The depth is the only challenge under the tank.

    Yes, Vertex CaRx.
