5ft X 5ft x 24" Vegas build

So I had the opportunity to purchase a used tank from a friend that fits the dimensions I was looking for. Keep in mind I bought my house with the idea of eventually getting my dream in-wall tank and Fish Room. Slowly over the years I've acquired pieces of equipment Rock and slowly build out my fish tank room. As it says in the title 5ft x5ft x 24" high this is roughly a 600 gallon build. Main display is almost 400 gallons with 120 gallon frag tank in two sumps one that will be turned into a refugium. As far as equipment goes besides the basic Electronics there's a bubble King skimmer 250 Marina and a Geo 812 calcium reactor. I ended up going with 9 xr15 radeon blues. And for circulation 4 MP 60s. I'm going to be running dual Ecotech L2 pumps for redundancy. I'll show you Progressive pictures up into where I've gotten so far

Update time been busy. Stand painted and in place. Built my light rack out of aluminum extrusion. Saved me close to $400 over radeons hanging options. Next weekend I'll do a water test. Fingers crossed.

Love the build, I am starting with a tank that was used. 360 in the display area. I am going to do another 100-150 in the system, for frags etc. I am in the Las Vegas metro as well. I wish mine wasn’t as tall as it is, but I can’t do that deep in the room I wanted it in.
