Thank you very much! This is truly a dream build for me. I have been in the saltwater hobby for 15 years, and was finally able to make it happen. The wife and I designed our new home plans with the tank in the center! The reef has been up and running for 9 months. It's dimensions are 96x48x34. It has its own room, and is plumbed to make maintenance very easy.

Well , I got a some goodies for the tank room. I have decided to put in a dedicated a/c unit in the room, taking off the house system. I will also be installing an exhaust vent in the room. Many things led to this decision , so my new projects are starting.

Now that I have the ac project wrapped up, I had an itch to clean up the powerheads today.
they got soaked in 75/25 water/vinegar bath for 3 hours. They came out great, well considering I've never cleaned them
