    Can testify to humidity being a problem. A humidifier puts out heat and a exhaust sucks out cool air. I use a combo.
    the humidifier helps heat the room in the winter and exhaust only comes on when very hot in the summer. Anyway congrats

    Hey nice tank I love and I wish I could convince my parents to get me even just a 360. Lol! How far is the closet to the tank? How many feet? What is the height of the stand? Is there enough room for you to get in there and fix or change some thing? With the closet I would run one of those black stock tanks, from Tractor supply. And is that water going to be plumbed to the sump or back to the tank? I would say figure out the plumbing you will need, if you already have plans for the stand wait till you figured out the plumbing make adjustments to the stand. And you should be good to go. And if you are iffy about something post it on the thread and bounce the idea back with a few people! I'm practically always on so if you need to bounce an idea off of someone I can help you out!

    Lucas. Happy reefing!

    Exhaust is a good idea but I think the central ac will take care of the humidity-

    Will have to see-my goal is to have nothing else in the room except the tank and a nice sitting area

    Nice John! Put a fan inside closet to keep air circulated.

    Ur gonna want a tall stand.makes working and adding stuff much easier. Mine is 42" tall and total height of tank is at perfect eye level.

    ''Tis is going to be awesome. Can't wait to see the tank up and running. If i would put and air duck and and air return in the closet. You would be surprised how hot it can get in a closet with equipment running. Plus the air circulation would keep the humidity down. In a small space you would be surprised how the humidity level can rise.

    Hopefully the AC will take care of the humidity and will try to install an exhaust to run just a few hours a day when the main lights are on. Still debating if I should do LEDs or T5s or a combo. At this point cost is really not the issue but at the same time don't want to break the bank. Like you said I will be a "poor man" by the time I'm done with this monster.

    Thanks Lucas. I'm very impressed with the amount of knowledge you have about reefing...that's awesome!!!! The closet wall is attached to the short side of the tank. In the picture above you can actually see the closet door. I uploaded better resolution pictures so much easier to see now. :-)

    The closet will hold minimal equipment. I will have the large trigger sump under the tank which will hold majority of the equipment. The closet will hold 2 65 gallon water totes (salt/rodi) for quick water changes, the totes will be setting on shelve so I can utilize the space below. Also, all my electronics such as APEX controller/calcium reactor components will be in the closet away from the salt water.

    Sure-the sump will be under the tank. The monster is so big everything will fit in there...hahaha. I changed my mind I don't think I'm putting anything wet in the closet just the electronics and my 2 auto water change totes which will have an enclosed tops.

    Thanks Wes! Yes will run some exhaust in the closet and to run the exhaust outside it's only half a foot away. Definitely taking your advise regarding the height of the stand. I'm going with the 42" stand.

    Question for you...is your tank sitting on tile or wood floors?

    Hey John if your going to do pen style why dont you take the overflow boxes out, patch the holes and then put a ghost overflow on one of the ends?
