    Im so happy to be part of this build

    Today i helped with plumbing one of the coral raceways 400+ gallons with three “tubs” and one xxl custom glass sump
    Plumbing is two 1” drains and a 3/4” return each they are connected through the sump so any of the “tubs” can be closed off and used separately without the sump
    Pump is just for cycling and will be upgraded to a proper sized pump once it’s all running
    The cycle might start in a bin or in these tubs it will consist of Dr Tims and bio blocks (not sure what type)
    Oversized skimmer (not sure yet what type)
    Led and t5 lighting
    Some type of wave maker for flow
    Some type of rack to hold frags and colonies
    They will continue selling at shows and start selling online

    I can’t wait until all the eye candy shows up

    i am in no way Affiliated i am friends with most of the reefing community so saying they are friends of mine isn’t saying much

    Once they are up and running they will become vendors here (so no names until then)

    They are already actively selling at shows but they are extending in to another location to expand online

    So far It is 4 coral systems they are known for selling high end name brand coral with some stunning and rare sps so can’t wait until these tanks are full

    Ill try to update with pictures of the build as i go to visit
