Go big or go home! Awesome upgrade
Lol. This is why I waited 5 years to bring the 300 from my parents house to mine. I knew it wouldn’t be enough and I would end up at this point. I would have gotten a 12 footer but I wouldn’t be able to fit it in the house. This tank will fit with about an inch to spare.

Lol, I hear you I actually regret not going bigger with my tank 8x4x30” I had to remove sliding doors in the basement to bring my tank in I purposely only went 30” tall because of door frames. But I really wish I went 10 or 12’ length I could have fit it well leaves room for upgrade again :cool-1:

I'm going to use the same filter that's on the 300. A 275 gal icb tote with a 55 and 20 gallon barrel filled with 1000 pot scrubbies. filter socks for mechanical. For the pump currently using a jebeo dct15000 which is running at 70% power and turning over 1100gph. I will add a second DCT15000 so the total filter turnover should be around 2200 to 2600 gph. I will need more flow inside the tank from wavemakers or powerheads and I'm not sure what to do about that yet.
