    180g build

    Hey everyone, I've been out of the hobby for the last 4 years but I'm excited to start a new build. I found a decent 180g tank up in Denver at Murrman's Reef for a great price. I still had my 125g sump from my 300g build. I built my stand and drilled my tank. I'll post pics as I get along further, any advice will be greatly appreciated.

    I went with the peninsula idea. Here it is drilled and on the stand. The sump in place, that was tricky. Salty concepts with the help of reefkoi built the overflow box for me. Thanks again guys.

    So after awhile now, I filled my tank. I had to remodel the house a little to make more room for it. I still need to do finishing touches on my stand and build a canopy to match. I'm adding rock tomorrow. Tell me what you think or any ideas y'all have. Thanks.

    Thanks, I appreciate the comments. Here are some more pics. I put rock in this weekend. All the rock I used so far was dry rock from my last tank, so I'll have to get some good live rock. I still need to add my stuff to the refugium as well. I'm working on my canopy right now.
