Queens DJ Sheeds 220 Gallon Tank Master Piece (Astoria)

What's up everyone! It's been sometime but I got out of the hobby for a few years and had to sell my beloved 125 gallon tank before moving

(https://www.manhattanreefs.com/forum...y-bueller.html)

But now I'm back with a 220 gallon tank that I just love! I actually set this tank up when I lived in Long Island City a year ago. I then moved back to Astoria with the tank and now slowly getting it back up to speed. Here are a few pictures I took along the way.

Thank you all for taking a look! I'm always open to questions, feedback and any suggestions!

Pics to come soon!

Couple of things, I kept great flow with the two vortex on each side. I also would bring the blinds down during the day and didn't have much issues.

I moved from this Long Island City location back to Astoria since I took these pictures but I was on the 30th floor and had no issues because all the high-tower buildings have reinforced concrete construction that could handle that kind of weight.
