    Default 225 Gallon upgrade- ROUND 2!

    Soooo I ordered my replacement 225g tank a couple weeks ago- I think its appropriate to start my build thread (again). I kept all of my equipment and my stand from the old 225g, but there are a few upgrades I want to enact this time around.

    New Tank:
    No center overflow- give me that space back inside the tank!
    No 6" eurobrace - give me that space back in the canopy for more light!
    Better skimmer - replace old ASM G5 (Thanks Lawrence!)
    Remote Sump - In garage instead of making a mess in the house on the carpet.
    Plumb water changes - Open valve to drain into house main sewer line, open separate valve to pump water from mixing station (got the ideas from Jamie)

    Heres the tank design from the builder- Oceans by Design in Seattle. I was going to go AGE or Lee Mar but shipping was going to be approx 800-$1,000. Oceans by design will deliver for free, and has a good reputation here in Seattle/Spokane areas.




    a Grafted Monti when I was in Ft Lauderdale the other week,


    also saw an interesting sign around here that I never saw in socal.

    Added a cool decal to my office (where the fish tank will reside!

    Ive been working on the plumbing through the crawl space all weekend, I have to insulate everything because it apparently gets below 0 here in the winter. I also reinforced the floor since I am not longer slab-on-grade



    Here is my tank so far....

    Sounds like this will be a very interesting build. Certainly something different then we normally see here in n social with all the insulated plumbing. Can't wait to see the progression
