    Didn't catch it live but I watched it later in the evening. The floor and bar area are looking really good. Is the most ambitious section still to come? The reconfigure and layout of the filtration/equipment and frag tanks?

    Yes it is. I’m still looking for an idea. Looked at a 180 today that is 48” wide x 36” front to back. I’ve been doing the easy stuff first. If anyone has ideas please let me know.

    Are you getting a new display, or filtration or both

    I don’t know, I have a 4 ft wide hole to fill. Can’t fit wider but could do deeper. Love to switch out my sump but I like the design. Just think it’s not so nice looking

    How about the new 150 from innovative Marine or the 4ft Marineland DD.

    although i haven't seen it in-person but at $2500, the 150 Innovative Marine Nuvo provides great value for $ to anyone looking for a largish tank. That price includes IM's aluminum stand.

    Love that candy cane hogfish, mine has been a great addition.

    Build looks great too and the white cabinets make the back room seem bigger.

    Anyone know of a 180 that is 48 x 24 tall x 36 deep? I was thinking that maybe I could put some rear out rigging on my stand and slide that into the same spot. Kind of wishing for a wall to wall overflow too

    Sounds like a custom build is coming to the southern suburbs

    I am editing the 3rd edition of this video. I think I should be done by Friday 3/27 for publication. At the end of the video I asked about paint colors for my cabinets. I'm thinking I should post a poll on YouTube for that versus here.

    Also included the Reef Wife in this movie a whole lot more. I admittedly cut out the scene where I nearly electrocuted myself, sorry, the camera wasn't on for that part.
