I'll try to get some pictures of the tank actually in the room. The new layout makes sense as the tank is viewed regularly from all three visible sides. This new layout also makes for more natural schooling behavior in the fish. It's much more interesting to watch now.
I'll take some video once the water is clear

|kwheeler91||What have you done! J/k. Sometimes changes are nice. I also feel you pain in the moving department. Ive moved my 55 four times, two of which were upstairs apartments. And thats why I will never live upstairs again lol. Good luck man cant wait for it to fill in.|

I kept a few good stems from collection but they need to grow out. I ditched the alternanthea though. When I pulled out the growth it was about 3 cubic feet! I just had problems keeping the submersed growth looking nice.
I ditched all the fast growing stems. I'm heading into my busy season for work and I could end up working 7 days a week for a while, so low maintenance over the summer was a requirement.

The tank still looks beautiful even without the stems. Sometimes (actually all the time) I wish I would have went with slower growers in my recent tank but I do love all the colors of stem plants.

Sticking to slower growing species now. I have a long term plan that requires more anubias and ferns so I want room for them to grow

Congrats on the new house. The tank looks right at home there.
What happened to all your stems that you had in the background?

here is the tank as of tonight (3 days later)
It needs some time to settle in and plants to take off. But it should look more like a real thing in a month.

I have another led pendant that will become the center led cluster on the 7 footer. It will have 12 cool white, 12 royal blue, 6 red, 4 green leds. The current long led strip will be mounted end to end on either side of the center pendant. The current pendants on the left and right will be moved in front of the strip.
This new layout will have 3 really intense areas but still have a nice blend of rgb across the 7 foot length.
It is going to take a considerable amount of time to build the stand and save what I can for the new tank.
This tank journal will continue for quite some time as the tank will be running during the 7 foot build.

Wow is all i can say. i feel so unintelligent reading some of these SUPER high tech journals. i have NO idea where to even start with this kind of stuff. it almost feels like something you would have to go to school and learn how to do some of this stuff!
Nice to see a fellow Brittish Columbian on the forum! i Live in Kamloops, but i am actually moving to Nanaimo as soon as i can find a house i like enough to purchase! thanks for mentioning where you got your Tank, hopefully i can remember when i move to the Island and get them to build my dream tank, 250-300 gallons.
i am rarely blown away, but you have done it. i will never understand how some people are so good at the electrical and plumming in this hobby, ive only been in the hobby a year, maybe its something you pick up as you go along! one day i would love to have such an amazing tank, well done.
