Upgrading from a 90 Gallon to 140 Gallon.

Oh well, here i go. After having such a large tank (340gal display 750Gal total system) and down grading to a 90 gallon has been difficult to adjust to. Not much you can do with a tank 18" deep. So i'm planning of upgrading to a
48" x 30" x 22". This tank should be around 138 gallons i guess. this should give me a lot more room to play with. My 90 gallon i have a friend who i think will pick it up from me.
I'm disappointed that i just bought a 6 bulb ati fixture and will have to upgrade to a 8 bulb ati fixture. Even though i love MH fixtures in a apt its just to hard control heat issues.
Thinking of left corner overfill, Front and two sides low iron.
Ati 48" Powermodule 8x 54Watt Bulbs
Aqueon Proflex Sump Model 4 X
Skimmer ATB 840 V2
Return Pump 1260 or 1262 pump.
Ehiem 200 watt Heater
2x Tunze 6205 pumps
Apex Controller
Tunze Osmolator

Hopefully my friend will come through with the tank build. I know he does amazing work. I'll keep you guys and girls posted.

Corals already have waiting to transfer to the tank.
