    So to let you guys know a little about this tank it's a 40R tank i did all the drilling myself had the overflow box made from american plastic out of camarillo. I toke the black trim off and used 2in wide 1/4 glass to euro brace the whole tank. this tank has a 30 gallon refug housing a asm g2 I will be running a refug on this system and a mag drive 9. I will be running a brs reactor down the road when I break down my 25 and transfer everything into this tank. And for lighting I have the photon 32in full spectrum from reefbreeder fully programmable.

    I should still be able to do what I want is grown out my sps because from what I told at 100% they were getting 500 par through out the tank even sides so I shouldn't have a problem
