Default New Tank Build - Red Sea Reefer 750XXL

going to start a new SPS only tank and with the good experience I am having with the conversion to Zeovit on my 525 I am going to start this one from scratch on Zeovit. I will have some challenges as I am going to go with no sand on the bottom so that I can keep it very clean with high and turbulent flows. There will be no live rock in the system. I am attaching a photo of the structure that I had made to grow the coral on. In the sump I will be using a few Marine Pure blocks for bacteria growth that I am already pre-seeding with bacteria from my other zeovit system. I understand this may slow the process but I think this will be good over time.

Please see the picture of the coral mount system and you will see why I am not adding live rock in the tank.
