Default And so it begins... 1300 gallon setup

hey guys,
i am in the works of building a U shaped 1300 gallon tank, dimensions are 14ft by 9ft by 9ft (32"wide and 30"tall). It will house 6 SR and 9 BBXB. So far just the stands are bolted together but i will post up some more pictures as more work is finished. I'm super excited and would like to share this process with you guys until the finished product.

Wow... Speachless to say the least! Can't wait to see more pics.
Guess you had a hellova time getting the thing levelled?

This really depresses me. I had plans for a 1000 gallon build, but its being put on the back burner.

Probably acrylic no? Would be more structurally sound with acrylic compared to glass. Not that there's a problem with glass if it's all perfectly level.

hey guys,
thanks for all your inputs, the tank is going to be built with glass, and there will be 2 sumps running. I am not going to be working on the tank until next week so hopefully there will be a few more pictures next week.
