Queens new 75 tank build

took a few weeks, but this is my new 75 gallon with 40 breeder underneath. made it using 2 by 4s and 2 by 6s lumber for the stand and using 12 inch boards for the canopy. Also build an upflow algae scrubber into the right side being fed from the over flow. Don't think it will be enough nutrient export, so I'll also be using the sump space as a refugium in addition to coral frag rack.

Lights are up! using my two old Ocean revive T247 up top at 120W each and just hung an SB pro light on the bottom at 360W. Over kill but it fits the space. Using a generic 45W red/blue 12" hydroponic LED panel for the up flow algae scrubber.
