At long last, at the behest of no one, I will finally start the build thread for my 55g reef. I've been reefing for about ten years now. My first real reef tank was an old Oceanic 29g Biocube, which I started at my fiancee's apartment. Through many ups and downs, that was my reef for about 7 years, until my now-wife and I bought our first house a couple years ago. Thus was born this tank, in late 2017. The tank's specs, as of 3/15/2019: Tank: AGA 55g Stand: DIY 2x4 stand Lighting: DIY LED array (2x Saltwater Aurora Pucks from RapidLED), 2x Kessil A160WE (w/ Spectral Controller) Internal Flow: 2x Maxspect XF230 Gyre Pumps Overflow: Skimz OM2500 HOB w/ Tom's AquaLifter pump Return Pump: Syncra Silent 2.0 (568 GPH) Sump: Trigger Crystal 30 (1st chamber Refugium, 2nd chamber skimmer, 3rd chamber return) ATO: Tunze Osmolator 3155 Refugium Light: Tunze 8850.00 Full Spectrum Waterproof LED Dosing Pump: Aqua Medic Reefdoser EVO 4 Skimmer:Reef Octopus 110 Classic Heaters: ... some heaters that I've had forever. Will soon be replacing one... nothing wrong with it, just as a preventive measure. In the interest of not making an enormous opening post, I'll put the livestock pictures in the next post. So, I close with a few other pics of sections of the tank. Enjoy!
