I am waiting the execution of the plan. Once it setup, I would like to see this tank.

Thanks! I will be using the established rocks from my current aquarium. I'm also going to use a marine pure block in a dedicated chamber in the sump. Currently looking into multiple ways to achieve the aquascape. Options are between using epoxy, drilling rocks and holding them with zip tie and inserting acrylic rods. The main challenge would be with drilling live rocks because the window between drilling them and scaping them would be at most 1 hr or so before things start dying on the rocks.
Warm Regards,
Aditya

With the marine pure block, keep a check on the aluminium levels. Have read mixed reviews about those especially if you plan to keep any sps.
Rest let me know when you have frags for sale :twisted: :twisted:
