My 305 Reef build

Hey family, clearly i need help!! After owning my 160 gallon build for nearly 2 years.... I'm an starting over. Bigger and better right? This may be a bit premature since i don't have the tank yet, but i want use this to document my experience and steps along the way. If successful, this build will be a culmination of my experience gained over the years, and ideas from some of the amazing reefs and designs that i have seen here.

To start out, this tank will be hard plumbed, a 1st for me. I will also have a manifold and a board designed to hold most of my equipment in an organized manner. I'm using you guys as a sounding board, if there is anything you think i need or missing...please suggest! I'm open!

I currently have Echo-tech radions g4 non pros... for the the new build i am moving to the new Orphek v4 v2. I have decided based on recommendations for my tank size to go with 4 panels mounted perpendicular.

What are the tank's dimensions? What else can you tell us about your plan?

As many naturalists and environmentalists have suggested, we should set aside our arrogance,
our desire to conquer and control everything, and walk hand in hand with Mother Nature. -Walter Adey
