Hello all! I've been into aquariums since I was little but only into reef tanks since 2009. My father is also in to reef tanks. It all started with me bringing home a 72 Gallon bow front which I had planned to build slow. Flash forward a year, found another good deal on a complete 120 gallon and brought it back with me from Florida. In 2012, we moved into a new house with an insulated garage and way too much space. I currently have an 8x2'x12" frag tank that has the remnants of my friends tank that survived his tank cracking. I also have a 180g that is tied into my 125g in the garage. The 72 Gallon is in the game room currently. My father and I have always wanted a Large tank say at least 10', we have located the "perfect" space to do an in-wall build, but only 8' long. Hopefully, I can bounce my design ideas off of you guys so this tank will be successful for many years to come. The tank will be centered on the wall with 16" space on each side of the tank, but not the same space in the room behind. I plan to do an 8'L x 3'D x 29" H tank with starphire front, with a sump under the display, and a Coral grow-out tank in the fish room. Here is a picture of where I plan for the tank to be on the wall. This is a crude sketch of the layout and measurements of the room behind the tank. And a sketch of the tank I haven't figured out the overflow(s) yet, was originally planning on going with 3 individual overflows but I would really like to go with a Coast to Coast style overflow, with a Bean Animal drain system. I have an idea of what I want the sump layout to be, and will be doing a sketch tomorrow. I had planned on placing (2) 200 gallon tanks in the room for RO and Saltwater storage/mixing but It really limits the space in the room. My garage is roughly 23 feet away from the tank; and If I could, I would like to have the 2oo gallon tanks in the garage, plumbed into the room. Not sure if this would be feasible, but I already have a nice counter area with storage and a sink. There is no sink in the fish room, no water hookup, and no drain, I could possibly place a pipe that could be routed to the exterior and be a sort of grey water drain. I am also on a septic system which limits my disposal capabilities. That's all I feel like writing at this time, thank you for reading!
