    Default My new 240 build

    Hi everyone!

    I've been slowly working on my 240 build for past 1.5 years!
    I did a lot of background work to make sure the going goes smooth. I'll write about them later.

    Today finally I got the tank salty!!
    Don't have that much salt water ready so it will happen in batches lol

    Here's a pic:



    More later!

    I hope to meet every one on one of the meetings. My works unpredictable and am often working during the meet ups.

    Congrats on the new/ongoing build, looking good so far. Hopefully we can see some pictures of the filtration in the near future.

    Wow! Very nice setup! What are the dimensions of the tank?

    That looks really good. I love the rockscaping that you have there. From the angle of the photo, it looks like your overflow is pretty low, like almost 2 inches from the top. That would give you a lot of flex in case you have some issue with the drains or what not! I can't wait to see this bad boy progress. Any shots of your equipment?

    The rockscape took sometime. Wife had to critic. So now I have 5 islands two large on sides and 3 smaller. None of them same height. With lots of depth, composition, movement.
    Reef savvy Overflow is 1/2" lower than recommend. Needed that for the bracing

    More pics soon!
