New tank was ordered this week so figured I would start this build thread. Went back and forth several times trying to decide on a manufacturer. I did quite a bit of research here and was considering Reef Savy, Miracles and Coast to Coast. Reef Savy was quite frankly just way out of my price range at over 10k for the tank without shipping.

Why am I upgrading? As mentioned above, to correct some mistakes, the 40 gallon is too small to keep some fish that can help me in the tank maintenance, and…...
