Hey everybody I’m new to the forum so I’d like to say hello. A little on me I’ve been in the hobby off and on for about 15 years. I tried keeping corals for awhile and it was fun and somewhat rewarding however I always found myself gravitating back to the fish. Specifically the kind that get frowned upon in reef tanks such as large angels and puffers etc. So I eventually ditched the corals in my 180 gallon tank and went strictly FOWLR. So once I decided that was the direction I wanted to go I immediately started making plans to upgrade because I already knew a 180 gallon wouldn’t suffice for the angels and other fish I wanted to keep long term. So fast forward and I’m now in the process of setting up a 96x36x24 tank. Here’s some pics of the tank after it was delivered. I ordered it from Fish Tanks Direct but the brand is Tsunami . Scott the builder was really easy to work with and their prices were far better than what I was being quoted by my LFS for the same size tank. The tank has two trapezoid overflows with 2x1” drains and 1x3/4” return in each box. I plan on running the herbie method for the drains. Anyhow I’ll add more post showing what I have for filtration so far and what my plans are moving forward as I try to get this system set up and running.
