We finished building our new home in October, and, now, about 6 months later, I am ready to move forward with my upgrade to the 300+ gallon club. 72x36x31, just shy of 350 gallons.







Dry compartment for all my electronics, which I have accumulated over the last 16 years in the hobby.

Thanks, guys. Sadly, it will be a mostly "from scratch" build, as far as livestock goes. The year my corals have spent in a Rubbermaid livestock tub has not been kind to them. I lost almost every single large SPS I had.

Hey now! my 75 is beautiful okay!! lol but I am looking to go pick up a 150 this weekend so I guess I shouldn't be too offended XD.

Beautiful tank btw, I am going to be watching this.

I think I am starting to get small equipment insecurities :D

Nice tank, Kirk! Congrats on the new home too. Looks like you have plenty of room for a big boy tank there. Looking forward to watching this one come together. Thanks for sharing.

A small update...I have finished all the plumbing, including adding a seaswirl to the return, and plumbing in my ozone reactor, UV sterilizer, and media reactor via a manifold. I still have to go and add all the hose clamps, and remove some of the exposed teflon tape from some of the black fittings on the return line because it's driving me nuts looking at it.
