Default Grizz's 8' shallow sea

So here it is 2010 and I said to the wife that I would not be looking to upgrade to a bigger tank for a while. Well that failed miserably as I have bought a new tank.

96"L x 22"W x 18"D, dual corner overflow's, sump & pump, plumbing & a huge a** UV Sterilizer 30W.

I have built a new stand that is going to be totally enclosed with 1/2" oak. Going with a 3/4" oak top with a 1/2" styro between the tank and oak topper.
Here is the stand:




I am also building a new sump for it out of acrylic

Yes you are right at 165 gal, with the sump design total water volume is going to be 223 gal's. The main display is only 10 gal bigger but the sump volume will be double the size of the one in the 155.
