Welcome to the build!(up-to-date as of 3/22/19) Background: Living in Katy, TX, I use to own a standard 120g tank (48x24x24) that was up for about a little over a year. This was my first tank so my experience in keeping a reef/fish is over a year now . I've learned some things along the way. The biggest lesson being to get what you want the first time and take it slow! The past tank was one impulsive buy after the next, which all started with this tank and resulted in probably a few grand of wasted money (debt) and dead corals. So it's time to hit the reset button, get what I want and take it slow! Old Tank (120g): 120g (48x24x24) with dual overflow boxes Trigger systems Emerald 39 sump 6 bulb ATI T5 light fixture (rewired to have 2 channels)(was using the 48" reefbreeders photonV2, will be selling it) Skimz SM161 Skimmer Santa Monica Rain2 Algae Scrubber 1 Gyre 250 1 Jabeo pp8 Tunze 3155 ATO Scaped with BRS dry pukani rock (cured in bleach for 1 week or so)(looks like you can't even buy this stuff anymore) The tank sits on a DIY stand with a canopy for the lights. Livestock: Male Blue Throat Tigger Flame Angel 1 BulletHole Clown (female) & 1 Wyoming White (male) Magnificent Foxface Female Leopard Wrasse Linetus Fairy Wrasse Pair of diamond spot gobies (aka: trouble makers) Pair of Cleaner Shrimp Pair of Mocha Davinci Clowns Gold Midas Blenny ps: I have a nano tank with a pair of mocha davinci clowns... I love this pair... question is how successful will I be if I try to add them to the new tank at the same time as the old pair? Why I hate this tank: Number 1 reason I hated this tank with a passion is the dual overflow boxes. When I ordered the tank I just kind of assumed they would be placed in the corners of the tank... which IMO if your going to have overflow boxes, that's where they should be. But no, they're right in the freakin middle. They're ugly and take up space for aquascaping, ruining the depth of the tank and additional swimming space for the fish, lastly creating flow dead spots. I also hated the limitations I have with my desired fish list and I am not a fan of the stand I built or plumbing. Everything was rushed and if I did more research I would have did things different and included handy little features (like a space for electrical equipment). I guess this sums most of it up. Moving On to Bigger Things: Current Tank (230g): 230g (72x30x25) Planet Aquarium peninsula Trigger Systems Emerald 39 Sump ATI 8 bulb T5 fixture running giesemann bulbs (4 actinic blue, 2 super actinic, 1 purple, 1 azure blue) (2) 72" SB Reefbars Skimz SM161 Skimmer (2) gyre 250's Varios 8 Return Pump Tunze 3155 ATO 20g ATO container. Coralife twist 18w UV sterilizer BRS dual reactor (running carbon only) Haitian Rock Livestock: Male Blue Throat Tigger Flame Angel 1 BulletHole Clown (female) & 1 Wyoming White (male) Magnificent Foxface Female Leopard Wrasse Linetus Fairy Wrasse Pair of diamond spot gobies (aka: trouble makers) Pair of Cleaner Shrimp Pair of Mocha Davinci Clowns Gold Midas Blenny The Tank features a shadow overflow box and edge guard seams (so you don't have to worry about your magnet cleaner ruining your seams). The stand is a custom DIY plywood 40" tall stand so there is no bending over when viewing the tank. PS: I'm short af 5'4.... terrible genes...
