Reef tank History:

First reef tank 20L 2008-2010.

After doing freshwater monsters I decided to scale down and try a nano reef this was my first attempt with a sump, chaeto, clamp on light and aqua c remora skimmer. I used a modified stand from petco, for the remainder of my builds all stand were DIY.

2015-2016 upgraded to a 90 gal with DIY stand ( late 2015, this is the current rock in my 120 gal

Dang. That 90 looks sweet and your fish selection is outstanding, love the wrasses! I'm sure the 120 will be just as sweet. Great stuff.

Any way we could look under the hood and learn more about how it runs?

Dang. Outstanding. We have a lot of the same fish (pin tail, blue star leopard) and you have the rest I want (flame, rhomboid) any aggression issues? Are you running Radions and T5?

No aggression so far, for
The first week the male pintail chased the sub male rhomboid and now he is indifferent. The super male ruby head was chased also for a week but by the tang (go figure).

The complete list of fish
Ora Picasso percula x2 (since 2011)
Yellow canary wrasse
Mandarin female
Yellow tang
Potters angel
Potters wrasse
Blue star leopard x3
Ornate leopard
Melagris leopard
All leopards are female, I had a sweet Melagris male that translation in my tank that ended up
Dying for no reason

Flame wrasse submale
Rhomboid x2 female and submale
Pintail x2 terminal male and submale
Ruby head wrasse


I want a kole tang, lineatus wrasse, black leopard(s) and more potters and that's it.

Check out evolved chart with wrasse compatibility, I found it very accurate so far.

I'd like to get a lineatus as well. I'll take a look at @evolved list never seen it before. I also looked back at your 90 build. Its funny how we've done a lot of the same things with stocking and build (I've also made a Radion/T5 hybrid.)
