    kpiotrowski's 300DD

    First off thanks to Dave( peppie) and Matt( crazyfish) for helping me move it, and Jess (dbmreef) for the good deal on the tank and also helping to move with a friend! IOU!

    so the dimesions are 73.75x36x26.5. its 3/4 acrylic with external overflow, wavebox, and a 6 hole closed loop. came with reeflow 2500 and 3600, and 1000gph return. steel stand, decent skimmer that needs a pump, some broken tunze with controller, and sump...oh, and great white magnet cleaner. I am undecided if it will go in the house with all equiptment in the garage, or out on the patio and be an in-wall build with fish room. For now here is a couple pic of the garage full.

    Kevin,
    We gotta know....
    How many aquarium tanks do you have at your house??? Empty, or not. I will bet it is over 10!!

    Looks like you have enough plumbing parts to plumb a fish store!!
    You cant possibly know how you want to run your reef-system, until you have ran one.

    What a fun project!
    Don't do as I typically do. Take your time, enjoy the build, and get it the way you like first time. (or mostly)

    I really like the custom hot pocket/mtn dew plumbing parts boxes! Way to go green! You better go get some more fittings so you don't run out!
    My name is Chris and here is my tank!
