180rr upgrade

I ordered my new tank today, it a 180 gallon reef ready euro braced with starphire glass on three viewing sides. It will come with oak canopy and stand. I will post up pictures when It comes pin. Pick it up June 15th. This will be a slow build because I have some work to do first in the room its going in. Will keep you posted. My current tank is a custom105 gallon .
