I started my first Salt Water Tank when I was 20. It was a basic 55 Gallon setup with flu orescent bulbs! I have been involved with Reef tanks now for the past 25 Years and I am amazed every year with new technology that comes out. a little over a year ago I decided it was time to go bigger. My current reef tank is a 300 gallon glass tank with 2 overflows. I run a Bashsea SS-60 Signature Series Sump (60" x 15" x 16"), (2) COR 20 pumps which supply the tank. I have also plumed everything with pvc. I run (4) gen 4 radion xr30 pros with (4) aquatic life blue plus t5 bulbs. i run a 40w pentair uv, reef octopus calcium reactor, kalk reactor and a clear water scrubber, and a reef octo regal 300ss skimmer. Everything is connected to a complete apex system. After being in this hobby for over 25 years, all the money spent and disasters, I wouldn't trade it for a thing! I will say, I definitely learn something new every day about this hobby/obsession!

very Nice set-up! Please excuse my greenhorn questions.

What's below your Calcium reactor? Is that a chiller?
also could you please share the manufacturer of the "dosing" units above your Apex Controller?
Any info to share on the Scrubber?

Yes, it is a chiller and the dosing pumps are kamoer.
