    Sooo.. This have bin planed for a while now, actually over a year, i have no clue of what im doing, but i hope it will come together nicely! Filter on this big boy is a powerbead 85 runned by a 12000l\h pump.. will probably also have a 150 gallon sump\undertank to have raybabys in and polish filters like Fx5, my drip system will also probably be in there, with owerflow to sink. Lightning is not settled 100%, but i have ordered 3x 30w led with 6500 kelvin 2500 lumen, hope they will work out nicely! But enough with the talk, i started yesterday, will continue today, and this is where im at.
