Monster sump upgrade

I finally after (1 1/2 years) got around to working on my sump upgrade over the holidays. It's a 200 gallon Peninsula tank which I had Chris with Alien Ocean cut the gated baffles in Black (he did an outstanding job). I set it up with a Chaeto chamber, refugium, equipment and frag tank sections. I thought I would share some pictures of the progress on this beast.

Thanks guys. Don't laugh and I know it's overkill. My DT is a 120g, plus it feeds the 30g shallow frag tank.

I think the more water, the better. Just think ,if the ocean water was only 50% of the earth instead of 70%..It would be alot more polluted, or take longer to cleanse itself. In my case, having alot of fish, the more water for there waste to get broken down.

Thanks Ricky. I figured the more water the better and fortunately all my equipment was overrated for my old setup. I just can't wait to have it finally completed after procrastinating for so long. Lol
