    My custom 233

    I am having Oceans By Design build me a new tank.
    It's going to be 72" x 30" x 25". Same size as the one I have now.

    2 sides are starfire glass.
    It will have a external overflow box with three 1" drains.
    The back panel with be drilled for a closed loop using a Reeflo Snapper/Dart Hybrid pump.
    One 1-1/2" hole for suction and four 1" return holes.
    There will also be a 1" bulkhead for the main sump return using a Eheim 1262.

    Here some pictures of what's planned.

    We are hoping for the 19th.

    Suction cups should make it easier.

    I was going up there yesterday to take some pictures, but ended up spending most of the day setting up a temporary tank to hold my fish.
    Going to spend today setting up the holding tubs for the corals and rock, then maybe start pulling stuff out this week.
    The Lori is scheduled to come next Saturday to pick up the old tank.
    She is going to re-seal it and use it.

    Yeah, I've always wanted to try the external box.

    My current dual overflow boxes take up a huge amount of room.
