Just watched “BRS Investigates”.
How many of you would consider 8 x PRIME 16HD (440W) over 4 x G5 XR15 (420W) on 120G (4’x2’x2’) SPS dominated tank?
8 PRIME costs a tad more than 4 XR15, worth it?
It’s finally going down.. my.. sorta dream build. I acquired a 120 gallon tank back in 2011. Complete with stand, canopy, sump and some radion gen 1’s. Got it home and decided.. I didn’t wanna use the stand.. or the lights.. or the sump lol.. I just for some odd reason absolutely love the...
So maybe you can tell from the title but I am building a complete system from scratch (Tank, Stand, Sump, and plumbing).
I will post my progress on this thread so stay tuned. Here are some pics from the stand.
Hi there my name is Pat Murphy, I am new to Reef 2 Reef kinda. I've been hesitant to post on here. But this will be my first article.
Last summer (2018) I decided to go ahead and build a system. I decided on a 120gallon. This put the wheels in motion for me to learn how to silicone a sump...
The tank is a 120 (tall) 60x18x26 LxDxT.
Unfortunately it has a blacked out center brace which complicates things.
My current setup (at least in terms of lighting) is 4 black box lights and 2 ATI Blue Plus bulbs.
My existing setup already grows Acropora, Miliporas, LPS, pretty much anything...
Yes, FREE, as in $0.00 !!
Marineland 120Gal Tank, 4 feet wide, 2 feet tall, 2 feet deep. Drilled with Corner Overflow in left-rear corner. Marineland Monterrey cabinet included. VERY good condition. I cleaned it for you! Not perfectly clean, but you can see that there are no scratches on...
Fts from 10/11/19
should have restarted my 90 when i got back in 4-5 months ago instead of trying to revive it. I ended up getting a 120 for free from my LFS so i planned to go in wall with it so i can have auto water changer and everything else behind it. no more having to run lines across...
How high are ppl mounting their 48-V2s for their 4’ 120 gallons?
Going to go with a hanging option. SPS/LPS new build.
I was thinking about 12” from what I can read but I haven’t seen any direct recommendations.
Dimensions and optics below.

So 2 years after my new home purchase, I am now getting back into my salt water addiction.
This will be my 3rd tank, but really my first "Adult" setup. I finally have enough room for a full size sump, refugium, and an observation tank.
This should put the total system volume to just above 245...
Hoping to get some advice on an ever cascading list of questions on aquarium/sump placement.
For background anticipating 120gal 48x24 reef tank, LED lighting, sump in basement below tank (40-75 Gal?).
I'll try to summarize issues as cleanly as possible:
In the corner of...
Hello all ! It’s been awhile, I finished up a move over the summer from Memphis Tenn to mid Michigan and tore down my sps dominator tank ..... I was heartbroken but .... with heartbreak comes new beginnings!!!! Ever since I’ve moved into my place I have gone back and forth on how big ? Where to...
Long time lurker, first time poster!
After being out of reef tanks for about 8 years i'm looking into a new build after buying our first house. Purchased a 120 Gal Marineland (48x24x24) w/overflow that I will be receiving hopefully next week. I am planning on setting up a basement sump that...
Moving my build thread to the right forum!
I am returning to the hobby after a 10 year hiatus. I had a 75g mixed reef when I was in high school with varying levels of success. It has been so long, and I screwed so much up before that for all intents and purposes I consider myself...
I'm starting a new 120 gallon system with 48" x 24" x 24" dimensions. I plan on making this an SPS dominant tank. I have a few questions:
1. Should I go with 6 or 8 bulbs? I have 2 Kessil 360's I plan on using for supplemental lighting & shimmer.
2. Should I go with a 48" or 36" fixture? I'd...
After being a member for several years thats included contributing and helping Ive failed to get my tank thread up and going.
Im going to be doing this piecemeal for the time being and sharing more details as we go along but if I don't do this now IT WILL NEVER COME!
This is my 120 sps...
Hello, I have a lightly stocked tank considering its size and had a few concerns about some of the fish moving to smaller tanks. They are currently in a 8'x36"x24" tall 360 gallon tank and will be moved to two 48"x24"x24" tanks with a shared sump.
2 dispar anthias will be adding a few more of...
Hey everyone! I've been around I think for a year now but never actually made a thread on my tanks progress or how I even started! So let me start by introducing myself then how I got to where I am currently on my tank. Hi! I'm Zachary, but usually go by Zach. I've been keeping freshwater fish...
I'm about to start a 120 Gallon Build. Mine is a standard 48 X 24 X 24, and I want to see what other 120 Gallon Reefers are doing for:
Sump / Skimmer / Filtration / Refugium
Overflow / Return
Heating / Cooling
Anything else you want to...
Brief background: 49 year old native Floridian who moved to San Antonio about four years ago. After so many years in and around South Florida and the Gulf Coast, being more or less land locked left me yearning for the clear water and coral reefs of the Keys. A thought occurred: Bring the...
