This is our 90gallong cube (36 x 24 x 24) with 10 gallon sump.
We run Aqua 40 W sterilizer fed with Sicce pump (I don't remember size).
Center refuge with Kessil 360 grow light
Return pump is Varios 6
Protein skimmer is Octos Regal 150ss
Light is Geisman Vervve Plus

Our water volume is just a hair over 80g after rock displacement.
Two Octo Pulse 2 wavemakers complete the tank.
2 cobalt 150 W heaters on system that send text warnings of temp

Balling system using 4 pump Kamaor F4 Pro with Reeflower Alk, Ca2+, Mg, and trace elements with 1.5L acrylic reservoir for each.

It was started in February (finished cycle and started to stock).
We lost fish due to a bacterial infection: KIA where 2 Belus angel (male/female), midas blenny, 3 clownfish, Mandarin goby. Really taught us a big lesson. We quarantine much better and added UV light immediately thereafter. No fish added since.

Sump pics to be added at some point.

Sump pic added with light on. Clear vinyl braided hose runs to UV sterilizer (behind the cabinet) and back.

We borrowed a little cabinet room (our TV resides there) for our doser and reservoir. 90 gallon tank with ato resovoir and dosing pump.jpg

@Big G We went crazy. About 50% of the coral was in our 24 gallon cube that we outgrew because we over-purchased. Immediately upgraded, cycled, and then transferred them over.

Thank you SO much for being the reef 365 feature. We will get a lot of pictures in this weekend (I work away from home 4 days a week so I only get to see it on weekends). I'll update the sump for you all (one of my favorite parts if I'm honest).

Updated photo of our tank. We've moved a 'cave'-like rock that was in the right front a little back and brought a smaller rock forward. The cave-like rock had a huge grey donut coral on it and it was hiding one of our shroom platforms.
