400++

Not sure how big this will end up as. As planned the display will be no smaller than 350g with a basement sump. At bare minimum I'll be looking at 750g system.
Ive started from scratch, here goes.

Reefing is'nt how long you been in it. It is how deep you get in it.

Current Tank Info: 400g display build, 300g sump, 75g ATO, 75g refug and a few more. Close to a 1000g. 200g mixing station.

Installed water softener with a ro/di. I have the line running just a lil over 100ft to the mixing station. The drain lines run into a sump pump that pumps in the street gutter. While I was at it I added a wash basin.

Mixing station will be in my cubby. On the 2x6 stand. Yes I painted the pump and pipes. I was bored and it looks cool. I'm waiting on my 2 @ 200 gal vertical tanks.

Bracing and a 48" X 48" X 96" sump table. With 9' basement ceiling, I wanted to raise the sump up some.

This seems like it will be really cool... but in some pictures it's hard to tell what's up and down since they are not oriented properly. Can you fix those? Looking forward to more updates.

I'm getting a 180g that would be perfect for a sump. Anyone with 180 sump ideas key in.
