My 450 gallon Ultra Deep Dimension

Here she is!! Did a quick wipe down with vinegar water. 3/4" low iron glass,
Hello fellow reefers, starting this thread to track my new adventure. Another fellow reefer here in the Pacific Northwest passed the info on to me about this tank. Was too small for him, really his words!! I ended up trading my current 240 for it with the stipulation that I had to have the 400 up before I could let the 240 go. Will be picking the tank up tomorrow 5/21/16 and starting the stand this week. Picking two acrylic tanks next weekend to mod for sump and refugium. Tank will be viewable from 3 sides!!

So here is the equipment list:
Tank custom 72x60x24 3/4" glass tank
Steel stand with marine grade plywood beauty panel covers in white formica
Aluminium light rack with matching beauty panels suspended from ceiling
8- Modded Reef Radiance Prostar 165watt LEDs
2- Modded Toetronic 165w LED for frag area
2- Finnex Planted+ LED for refugium
72x18x18 acrylic sump/Frag tank
60x18x18 Acrylic refugium
2- Reeflo Superreef Dart Golds; 1 driving a closed loop, 2nd split running return and driving skimmer
MRC MR2 Beckett skimmer with two Becketts
Geo 818 Calcium reactor with Carbon Doser regulator
Modded K2 calcium reactor, now used for GFO/Carbon
2 Maxspect Gyre 150s
Jebao RW15 in frag area
Jebao RW8 in refugium
150lbs of Aquacultured Gulf live rock (current tank)
150lbs of Marco/base rock

Thanks for looking and will keep this updated as the build up progress over the next month.

Euro bracing with reinforced bottom seams. The wine bottle is what I gave my wife before I left to go pick it up




Next up will be getting steel ordered for the stand.

It looks like there is a hole in each corner on the bottom. Is this for overflows?

There are 4 holes, two holes for 1.5s bulkheads and 2 1". Will use them for a closed loop. Will drill 3 new holes for the overflow/return. Just deciding where I want to put it.

The closed loop seems a good choice for this tank. Ah, decisions, always fun.
