wow! That's a pretty super large system Jim! Why are you planning to build a super large tank like that? Where will the tank be located, your home or business establishment? You should start with what materials you''ll be using.. Example: Acrylic or Glass? I dont think there's a readily available protein skimmer in the market for that super size tank!

I think you already got some ideas in your mind. Let us know and share your design plans with us.

Goodluck Jim!

Jim, I do not think 3;4" thick glass would be enough. Try to source for acrylic sheets, about 2.5-4". Acrylic sheets would be more cost effective for tanks that size.

What would you use for your lighting system?
Cheers,
Marty

Sorry Jim but it wont hold. You'll regret it.. You could also try to contact this person, I know you'll be building your tank in Cebu but this person is the one you could rely on when it comes to building a reef aquarium (especially with that size!) if he cant come to you or wont convince him to build your tank, ask for his advice and suppliers. For sure he knows where to find what you're looking for.
He is the most trusted aquarium builder here in Reefphilippines.com
