Wow! You know you have a big tank when it takes two trucks to move it!

This is mental!

I'm so impressed by people who have the imagination to come up with these unique builds and all the challenges they produce.

This should end up being an amazing centerpiece of your home.

Following!

Holy schmokes! Wow, having a lot of fun just following along. You’ll be able to do some amazing rockscapes in there.

I thought my 300g was big! Awesome build you got going on. Now I will pass on to my wife that my tank is small

I think the scale is starting to sink in It took over 1/2 hour just to wipe the glass down!

Tank is by Concept Aquariums in Calgary.

It took me weeks to find a moving company that either didn't just laugh, not understand the scale, or want like 4K to move it. I ended up steering toward industrial and corporate moving companies. Thankfully I came across Tim at RedPath and he was great! Would highly recommend them.

Here is a night shot, one LED should be enough right...

Can't wait to see more I love the ridiculous amount of pre-tank effort going into this thing. I was expecting to see steel beams. Those LVLs must weigh a TON! Nice work so far.

That could be the most over-built, built-in bookshelf ever if you decide to move.

What is your lighting...I see some large tanks use extra tilted leds ( egRadion)or t5 for lighting the undersides of the rock work/corals which is shadowed. Also for flow, do you think that is enough with 4 mp60/40s? check out the reef builders guy jake who uses powerful vectra pumps and wave boxes..https://reefbuilders.com/2020/05/14/...flow-aquarium/. ..he claims strong flow that is directional is more important than random flow (which is good for moving the poop to desired area for suction).
