I have delayed starting a thread on this because the work of building a new house and moving the existing tank has been a bit overwhelming. We are to a point where we are starting to make progress and I thought I should put something together. To start, our current tank is a 220 acrylic that is built into a wall with three view-able sides. The sump is a 180 glass tank in the basement. The system is primarily SPS reef with a nice variety of fish and inverts here's the current tank Its been set up for 5 years or so and we have been really happy with it.
