Default 84x24x24. 210 Gallon Build

Just picked up my 'new to me' 210 gallon oceanic tank. I have a 55 gallon tank that I will be converting into a sump with micron socks and lava rocks as media. I'm looking for some petros to add to the tank to go along with my small colonies of Mpimbwe Korongwe Bay 'Yellow Cheek' and my Simochromis Diagramma Isanga. The sump will be run by mag 18 and I will have purigen as well. I'm not a big canister filter person so I will have a couple AC110s running as well. For lighting I will have a 36" GLO T5 dual bulb and 48" GLO T5 dual bulb fixture. I have crushed coral aragonite as substrate and green canyon rocks. I will post pictures as I progress.

These are the petros I am seeking:
Petrochromis Trews
Petrochromis Macro (Any Variant)

So my house has leveling issues. I used some low profile shims to shim stand. I decided to buy fx5 and use 40 gallon sump with mag 12 on addition to the AC110. Tank isn't drilled and I didn't want the hassle of having to find another overflow to handle the mag 18. I painted the back deep blue with spray paint. Will post pictures when I find help moving the tank into the house.

Sorry guys. Someone brought to my attention that the dimensions come out to 180 gallons. The dimensions are 84 long not 72 long. Lol

Ah man that tank brings back some sad memories. I found one on craigslist for 350 with stand. Had it in the basement and broke half the bottom glass moving it. And that oceanic glass is much thicker than most tanks. PLEASE be careful with that classic!
