Default Grim's 210g (Final update.)

Hey everyone, I am relatively new to the hobby. Been keeping tanks since I was a kid. Got into salt water a few years back and started keeping a few corals about a year ago. Been a lot of learning since then... killed many a poor invert/fish/coral Currently I'm maintaining a 30 gallon softy/lps, 65 gallon fish only and a 150 gallon FOWLR that's located at my business.

After adding the other tanks to my nano 30 I am now much better educated, serious and passionate. So, I'm going BIG! Just started pulling all the pieces together for my new set up!!
I'm looking seriously at a Neptune Apex controller in the future and may add more Sol units if my PAR isn't acceptable! Other than that I picked up the Vortech today, stand tomorrow and start the build!!! Waiting on backorder on the lights though..

210 Gallon display (72x24x29)
40 gallon Breeder for sump (Mag 24 return pump)
Warner Marine MFK251 Protein Skimmer
5 Aquaillumination SOL Super Blue LED kits (all 40 degree optics)
2 Vortech MP60w ES
GFO and GAC Bulk reef supply dual media reactor
36 watt UV filter
2 250 Watt Titanium heaters

Added later:
- Neptune Apex controller with lab grade temp/ph/orp/conductivity probes!! WxM, Dimming/Variable, and I/O breakout modules
- Santa Monica 100 Acrylic Algae Scrubber
- Continuous auto water change system
- 4 BRS1.1ml dosing pumps for various things
- Geo 818 Calcium Reactor with aquariumplants.com regulator and run by a continuous duty peristaltic pump
- 3 Custom LED supplements with 3 red, 3 green, 3 violet and 3 royal blue leds each to bring out more colors
- 40breeder frag and lps tank tied in to system (2mp10s, 1 AI sol blue, 2 24" ATI t5ho w/tek reflectors and 3 violet leds)

I know.. no pics makes for a boring post.. But all I have to take pictures of so far is a tank with the back painted black on my garage floor and a collection of boxes strewn about my floor and me, looking like a 5 year old on Christmas morning, sitting in the middle of them!
