Bryan's 240 Build

Well, it's been a long time coming. Going to take it slow with the help of David and Kevin from Fintastic.

Will have a 240g display going to be a FOWLR. Sump room will hold the 100g sump and 80g remote refugium along with the 33 long QT. I have a Reef Octopus Regal 300 Int skimmer, Kessil 360we's and two 36" blue pops for lighting.

Will start it off with a pic of the Sump room as it is almost ready, just needs a few trim pieces and coat of marine paint in the sump area.

We cut a hole for the refugium in the sump room, but I had to order some marine grade paint for the sump area so delayed until next week.

Here are the fish that will be moving over slowly from my 180

Snowflake Eel
Dogface Puffer
Panther Grouper
Lunar Wrasse
Queen Angel
Lavendar Tang
Niger Triger
Pink Tail Trigger
Sailfin Tang
Harlequin Tusk

Awesome! And, I can't wait to see the pics.

Did you go with the Duralux Marine for the sump area? I'm right there with you...got the inside sanded, sealed edges, will prime it today and Marine paint tomorrow.

I went with The Rust-oleum Marine paint, because I found somewhere that it is latex free and my wife has an anaphylactic reaction to latex. I couldn't find the same on the Duralux (even though it says enamel based...better safe than sorry)
