    Large Build My Jump from 40g to a 180 (still have the 40 ;))

    I tend to bight off more than I can chew, but yolo haha. My wife and I started the conversation about moving to a larger tank this year, but wanted to wait until summer.

    Build Thread Finally getting serious: The 180 gallon dream tank

    I’ve been in the feeding hobby since I was 16. While most kids begged for a puppy I somehow convinced my parents to buy a 75 gallon saltwater tank instead. You might say that tank was a failure, but I fell in love with the hobby during those two years of heartache and frustration. 2 years ago I...

    DIY 180gal stand build, what you all think

    I’m pretty new to the reefing scene, started about a year ago with a 55g and quickly realized, that tank size wasn’t gonna cut it. Had a lot of success with it but just to small over all. So I started saving and a year later I found a good deal on a used 180g and a BUNCH of gear, took it home...

    Which ati fixture for a 180 gal mix reef?

    I’m upgrading from a 90 gal to a 180 and I’ve always enjoyed the look and coral health I’ve got with a t5 led combo. I plan on using my Aquaray AquaBeam 600 Ultima led strips because I already have them. I’m looking at buying a 60” ATI Sunpower but I’m not sure how many bulbs I should get. I’m...

    Trigger Sump 34 large enough for 180 gallon?

    I may be upgrading from a 90 gallon to a 180. I have a very new Sapphire 34 sump from Trigger Systems that has been in use for literally a few days. Would it be able to handle a 180? I am sure I am dreaming here but I thought I would ask. Thanks
