Here's an update to the project. I've since added stock and coral. We have hung a temporary light as well.

Off to a good start, what type of skimmer is that?

I like the plywood sump, brings me back to the days way back when I saw a monster custom plywood reef tank with glass front and and port hole view side.
Everything was custom including the skimmer that was almost as tall as me run by a couple big dart pumps. It also had a cat walk going around the whole tank in the fish room that took the weight of 4 large adults.

Nice looking build! What type of paint did you use on the inside of your plywood sump to cover the fiberglass and epoxy?

Well these photos are now old in my last post. Since this we have lost half our Sps and all our octospawn. I've recovered the tank from the crash and it's coming back greatly.

Been a long while since I've updated this thread. Let's see.
We've had alk issues, and just general parameter struggles which have caused us to lose a few sps. Things are improving tho. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20170716/9e201842c2a2dde6b7987c1ff8cebd90.jpghttps://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20170716/f22daa59a710ced67658a20aae9a5052.jpghttps://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20170716/ba54b8300d6899a0f8d0241d44c96829.jpghttps://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20170716/3fadfa505af6768e974c1663df5172b6.jpghttps://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20170716/e0e828d899107adbd18143af4d4fde40.jpghttps://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20170716/3d388566353fec1b7f1c42e5d48b2cce.jpghttps://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20170716/c4381fc6b91d1d848aac965d83d90095.jpghttps://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20170716/8872c2fab7e7e5ba8c1456193b59bf31.jpghttps://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20170716/715c19efe1c80b40f2b608af50ec0143.jpghttps://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20170716/44fe22d696db8161df82bcb4958d5183.jpg
