It's taking shape and with the end panels you won't have to worry about the right end getting algae from strong sun light all day.
That's quite a hack in the lower right side of that cabinet to allow for the drain but I guess it wont matter once it gets screwed to the wall.
Edit: Are the insides of the plywood finished in any way or else you will see plywood when the lights come on, I went back to look at the tank and it looks like it may have a black background and on the sides as well but it's hard to tell from the photo.
Here near the Chesapeake the water is awful, I have seen new houses with whole 12 by 16 rooms devoted to water conditioning and well tanks the size of School house boilers.
I took my own samples in their bottles following their suggestions but after installing the new softener myself the water comes out fairly clean, were are supposed to use the iron salt pellets with regular pellets 1:2 ratio and every quarter I'll chuck in a couple of bags of salt crystals to get the resin sparkley clean and it works, I can get my gH to come back at zero but I'm sure the TDS is still a little high.
We use Brita filters for water, every shower head has a built in culligan filter, but the fish are the only ones getting RO?
Very nice build! I only have one question. What are you going to do about evaporation? I had a system with about the same amount of water(180g display, 120g sump and 77g refugium. total 377g) The evaporation and humidity was unbelievable!
Damn..... How much gph do those both of those beasts pump?! Are the 4 white canisters just used to store media?
Yes, those white canisters are my media chambers. Look back a few post on how I am modifying them into bio filters. They will be plumbed in parallel.
The pumps are rated at 3,000 gph with zero head. With the friction loss and head pressure they will be running about 1,500-2,000 gph each.
One pump is strictly for tank circulation and the other will be on closed loop off the sump pumping through the UV, chiller and bio chambers.
Just waiting on the digital flow meters that will be plumbed into each circuit to start the install. No more guess work on much water I am moving, just look at the digital readout.
