Its going to be good! The next month will be a huge undertaking to get it running but its essentially going to be a scale up version of this build. I crammed a lot of equipment into this tank that used to run a 265 gallon just like this one so it will scale nicely.
As it is right now I have WAY too much light for this tank, but it will do a 265 nicely. Ive managed to put together a great combination of equipment to drive it too so it should come together pretty darn quick!

|Mitashade||So sad to see it dismantled. It's honestly one of my fave tanks on the site. I'm sure the next one will be just as good though, looking forward to it.|

|GDominy||This concludes the life of this tank. I have purchased a used 265 gallon (7 x 2 x 2.5) that will be replacing this one. It's been fun, but I'm looking forward to going bigger! Stay tuned for a new thread!|

Great build! That new tank sounds *awesome*
Any hints on plumbing/overflows? Sump in stand or separate room/area?

Great tank build. I'm pretty much following suit. Started with FW / planted, switched to saltwater several years ago with a 175g DSA tank...started downsizing due to moves and recently set up a 50g cube because my new apartment is perfect for a 175g peninsula style tank. It should arrive in about 3 weeks.
I'll be controlling it with my apex. I hadn't thought about using a doser for the ferts. What ferts are you dosing and at what rate?

Tank is progressing nicely. I've had to reduce my light considerably and I'm currently sorting out a new nutrient regime. My test kits had all expired and we're giving me tons of false results so now I'm lost as to where my levels are.
I've stopped auto dosing until I get new kits and will be doing a basic ei method.
I am getting a bit of algae on my slow growing plants which made me question a bunch of assumptions I had made. Hopefully a reduced nutrient load and lower light will improve things.
Here is a video of the current state of things.

I have a few varieties of Anubias, 3 varieties of Java fern, a few varieties of crypts, bolbitis, red tiger lotus, red ludwigia of some sort, and a couple of stems I traded recently that I have yet to identify.
My goal was slower growing low maintenance plants as my schedule is really chaotic.

+ 1 on the plants

|lamiskool||Awesome!!! Been waiting for an update on this. It looks great!|

What plants do you have?

|Mitashade||Looks fantastic. Great job with the sand, too. I've tried... I've been too impatient.|

White sand looks nice!
My god 10'x2'x2' with a rimless 4' sump? Insane.
