Default 125 Gallon Display Tank / 32 Gallon Frag Tank

So I decided to do a tank journal. I will have a display tank and frag tank side by side that will have the same sump. I am going the Triton Method as well.
Tanks:

125 Gallon 60L x 24W x 20H. 3- sided Starfire, Starfire Eurobrace, External Overflow (3 - 1" Drains, Bean Animal Design), 2- 1" Returns, Vinyl Back and Bottom.


32 Gallon Frag Tank. 30L x 24W x 10H. 3-Sided Starfire, Starfire Eurobrace, External Overflow (2 - 1" Drains, Herbie Design), 2 - 3/4" Returns, Vinyl Back and Bottom.

Stands:
125 Gallon: Custom Metal Stand - Powder Coated (black)
32 Gallon Frag: Custom Metal Stand - Powder Coated (black)

Plumbing:
125 Gallon and 32 Gallon Frag Tank:
All Sched 80 Piping and Fittings. Various Sizes.
Lighting:

125 Gallon: 2 - Radion Gen 3 Pros. I may add one more in the future.
32 Gallon Frag: 1 - Radion Gen 3

Sump:
125 Gallon and FragTank: 56 1/2L x 20W x 16H

28L x 20W x 16H Refugium, 14L x 20W x 16H Skimmer Section w/ adjustable baffle, 7L x 20W x 16H Return, 7W x 20W x 16H ATO Section.
5 - 1" Bulkhead Drains, 2 - 1" Bulkhead Returns, 4 Probe Holders, 2 - Heater Holders, 7 Dosing Line Holes.

It's a custom made acrylic sump by Elite Aquatics. It is currently under construction. I will upload a photo to give you and idea of what it looks like. It's all black with clear windows in each baffle area. It is going to be a Triton Method sump.

Return Pump:
Vectra M1 2000 GPH.

Equipment Undecided On:
Skimmer, Media Reactors, Reactor Pump, Controller (Apex or GHL?), Doser, Powerheads (Gyre or MP40's?), ATO System, Fuge Light, and what ever else I can't think of at the moment. If anyone could give me any recommendations on any equipment that would work well with this system please let me know.

Default Tank Update

So today I realized that my stand is upside down! Does anyone on the forum know where to get suction cups?

Also I picked up some more plumbing parts. Man this hobby is expensive. I have a contractor discount and it still cost me an arm and a leg!

Default Reposting Images

So I guess Photobucket is a pay to see site now and some people can't see the images I have posted. So here are the photos again that are loaded to a different site.

I would like a full SPS tank I think. Still thinking about it at the moment. I really like Zoas too! As for fish I really like Tangs and Wrasses. I haven't figured out exactly which ones I'd like though.

Thanks! Well Iíve been taking my time and doing things properly. Iíve had a few builds in the past to learn from.

I have always wanted A Fuge to begin with and I want to try something different. Letís not forget about not having to do water changes!
