Decided to quit surfing the web for used OR lights when they had a sale so I bought 4 more to round me out to 10 total.

Also bought my electrical wire, staples, boxes, wire nuts, extra breakers, etc. probably gonna end up with one circuit dedicated just for lights. Just need to research some relays so I can energize the lights without having to buy a couple eb8's or use several power strips. Would be nice to install plugs above in the ceiling while I can without the additional risks involved with power strips. There's roughly 15 plugs needed for the lighting.

with such a large tank and so many lights it would cool to do a rolling sunrise/sunset where it starts at one end of the tank and finishes at the other you could do it over the course of 30 mins to an hour so that the difference in lighting on either side wouldn't be too great but still be noticeable depending on your ramp time of course.

Wow. It's been forever since I touched this thread but progress is happening! Electrical is all run, got a boatload of outlets high and low, about 40 available plugs in the room split across 3 new dedicated circuits. Hot water and domestic water is plumbed in stubbed out, drain piping is run and stubbed out.
Sheet rock starts Wednesday and will be done Friday! Stands getting built around the 28th and tank should ship in 2 weeks or less. Here's a couple recent pics. Things are heating up!

Are you pumping the waste up to the main waste line?
40 outlet over 3 circuits, wow, keep track of what u plug in to what circuit, you can go over amperage with just two items.(chiller, heater, etc.)
Keep the ball rolling!

I plan on labeling the outlets based on circuit number and have also put together a small list of what items I plan on connecting to each circuit. I also ran the heavier gauge wire so each circuit is rated up to 20 A instead of 15.
Yes, I plan on pumping waist up into the sewer system. My basement is plumbed for future bathroom on the other side of the house and I did not want to trench the concrete floor across 30 feet to put in the sewer drain line utilizing gravity drain.
Lastly, no that is not my tank that is Sea posted LOL.

FYI. At continuous duty (3 hours or more) you can only load the 20 circuits to 16 amps. Make sure you calculate that in.

Thanks. Will do. None of them are currently loaded over about 12 amps but I think I'll keep a list of what's on each circuit with amperages

Spent all day scrubbing floors to clean up drywall mess and got my serious paint on. 2 coats behr ultra. Might hit walls with one more coat. Epoxy on the floor tomorrow and base mold trim in the best few days. Maybe drop in outlets this weekend and start setting up equipment and such ImageUploadedByTapatalk1440572917.350606.jpgImageUploadedByTapatalk1440572929.333765.jpg

That looks like it's going to be incredible. Awesome work!
When I finished my basement I put in a spot to hold a 220DT but I never got to it. While I don't have an SW experience (hope to soon) I do know a bit about general construction including plumbing & electrical. I think you're right on track!
Great idea pumping straight up to the sewer line. Even if the sump was closer than 30' there'll be enough going through it and I don't think all of the salt water would be good for the pump. With the electrical when you say 40 plugs I would think that there are 20 outlets with 2 circuits having 7 and 1 with 6. If you used 12/3 romex you'll be fine at 20amp. If it's 10/3 romex you could go to 30amp if the runs are short, less than 100ft.
The only concern I have is the pumps. If you're going to have a couple of big beefy Sea Horse's I'd run them on separate circuits... Startup amp draw is much higher than rated duty.
Looking forward to watching the progress.

Holy Big A#$ tank Batman! Gotta watch this one. By the way Rusty, if you need more Ocean Revive Arctic T247 120 watt lights, I have two. Used them for two weeks until I got my Radions. See my post in dry goods for sale forum.

Nice. Your photography looks great and so does the room. When we finished our basement it looked like a bomb went off downstairs and there was nothing but dust everywhere lol. Good job on the clean up. I had to hire help as it was waaaayyy too much for me alone. Either way. Cant wait for the finished product. Im in for the first viewing
