Default tank build journal FijiReefRock.com

Well the time has come and decision has been made for me to upgrade from an inwall 6 foot mix reef tank to a 10 foot by 32 by 31inches in-wall tank with a tear style sumps that will house 130glns skimmer,160glns Tons of rubble rocks and a 6 foot 120 glns frag system..

Started some demolition and moved couple of the tanks around now my basement looks like a construction war zone with my wife hating every moment of it,..I will be posting some photos of what I had and destroyed so far,...
Already thinking ...What did I get myself into...
