Just spent 2 hours reading thru this thread and it delivers! Cannot wait to see it finished. The most well thought out tank build I have ever seen!

I just read the whole thread, fantastic work!

Have you started with the apex programing yet? I would like to see your program once done, check out http://www.reeftronics.net for an easy way to share.

You might consider an auto doser for some liquid carbon, with such a large system and a huge amount of water movement you are bound to get a ton of co2 loss. Some Seachem flourish excel would allow you to run lower co2 bpm. http://www.bulkreefsupply.com/catalo...t/view/id/827/ this auto doser is easily controlled by the apex.

Have you checked out the new auto fish feeder by apex?

Last thought would be 2x ecotech radion LED's or 2x kessil a360's and hang them in between your 100w LEDs, although you don't need the extra light, having the control over the colour in the tank might really make your elusive fish pop! In the short term I would go with radios because they are supported by the new apex fusion (soon to be released)

running co2 at 15-20ppm and dosing Excel is part of the plan. I dont want to stress the fish with 30+ppm Co2

Awesome setup. Will you install a skimmer? And how is the venturi doing from Pentair?

Manzanita got lost in trucking twilight zone for a couple of weeks. Picked it up today and got busy laying it on the ground

Imagine this as the back of the tank between the two corner overflows. This is 5' X 2' pile of wood. About 5 pieces total

Think fake 3D amazon background, but real.

Cutting all the branchy pieces off and turned stump upside down so the branches will now be the roots
