    Default 120 or 125 Gallon Reef Build

    Just got my tank yesterday, took the dimensions in and it comes to 123.4 Gallons. So I guess I go in large tanks now.

    I will post pictures as soon as I can on progress of the build. Currently sitting in my garage while I work on a few things to alter on teh stand as well as waiting till I get paid to finish buying all the other stuff I still need to buy.

    Quick question for yall though. With tank, stand and canopy its around 77 inches high. I need to be able to put in 2 wave makers and possibly a heater (not sure if the heater I need to purchase will fit in the 55G sump). Of course none of the cords on the heater nor the 2 wave makers are long enough to reach the power strip I will be putting inside the cabinet. Are there any options for me at this point besides extension cords?

    Did you factor in the width of the glass? 😜

    Other then disassembling the wave makers and rewiring them, I just use extension cords.

    Guess that will have to be the route I take. Not comfortable with disassembling the housing and risking it being able to leak water into the electrical parts of it.

    Want to thank Terry from Salty Fish Aquariums for coming by and giving a helping hand in setting up the tank.

    Here are a few pictures from earlier today while getting it all set up.

    Have not seen him in months, not even any evidence he was still alive, well, he is alive and well, our horseshoe crab:
