Default 180 gallon build

well the wife and i decided it is time to break down our 180 reef tank,(6 ft. X 2 ft x 2 ft) and 75 gallon sump tank. it is reef ready so i will have to remove the overflow on one side and i think i will use the overflow on the other side to house my pump for a water feature. so once i can sell 225 lbs of live rock and a killer protein skimmer,(hint, hint!!), i will have enough funding to get started. i will keep my 6x 96w current lighting system and maybe only use 4 of the six bulbs available. i think 400 watts of lighting should be plenty sufficient to reach the depths of the viv. or maybe i will keep two actinic bulbs in it for some dawn and dusk effect.
so i am currently looking for a massive piece of driftwood for the center piece and i am looking into trying to get a couple guys near me to design and construct a sweet water feature. i know i can do it myself but i have seen their work at a local orchid house and i am thoroughly impressed!!

the tank is currently built into a wall in my basement and i think i will keep it there.

so here goes and i will try to keep up to date on the progress. and if anyone is interested in a lot of live rock and an asm g4+ skimmer please let me know and i can start my build even sooner.

That always hurts. I know a 180g reef had to look awesome but can get quite expensive and time consuming. This tank should turn out pretty awesome.
