Hello everyone I am still kinda of new here and thought I would show you kinda how I got to where I am now.
I am not super big on typing so I will let the pictures do the talking.

40 Gallon Breeder
30 Gallon sump
Octopus nw250 skimmer( I think)
2 Tunze 7045 power heads
2 Icecap 660 ballast
4 T5 Bulbs and one VHO bulb (soon to be all T5)
Quiet One 4000 (return pump)

Stand with no doors and not stained.

Stand minus the doors.

The power center minus one ballast.(I want to redo this part)

The sump section that was later redone and replaced with a 30g sump and better baffles.

You can kinda see the mess of electrical and skimmer and refuge that was later replaced.
 
The canopy that would eventually hold 4 T5's and one VHO

I made the stand with a removable center brace. Makes anything to do with the sump a lot easier.

I like your idea for what I assume are the Calcium and Alk drip bottles. Looks great!

The drip bottles did not work out to well. Almost imposable to get the same drip rates out of both bottles. I now use it to dose Marine Snow.

Is your return pump with your skimmer? Like I said this tank looks great. Even my wife came over for a closer look at the pictures and commented on them, which is a big compliment! She usually doesn't care for this hobby, so maybe if I can get my tank looking like yours she won't complain about my spending habits.

My return pump is on the far right side in the last picture and is hard to see because of the live rock ruble that I keep in the sump. So the water flows from left to right in the sump.
