Beacon HS Tank Thread

This is Beacons first (hopefully not last) saltwater tank. It is being set up in the marine biology room, and is going to be used mainly as samples for the class. Any help is appreciated.

The planned specs are as followed:
55 gallon tank - we need to fit it on a somewhat thin counter
20 gallon refugium - this is going to be one of the key parts for the class
20 gallon long sump it fits under the cabinet, and I'll be able to make it so it fits the equipment.

mag 8.5 return
Wave makers TBD
Skimmer TBD

2x Galaxy Hydro LED's (they work wonders for me) - for DT
Kessil A160 - For refugium

For rock I plan on using the extra Pukani I'm currently cureing.
And a 2"-3" Sand bed.

Pics to come!

I'll make some coral donations if you are interested in SPS.
