This will be my 3rd tank build to complete my garage paradise. I already have my 225G up and running for about a year and a half now ( mostly sps with chalices and a few zoa’s ) and a 180 FO. This tank is going to replace a 100G that is up and running. My wife likes corals ( that move ) so this tank will be devoted mostly to that. I already have a branching hammer , a few palys , gsp , and a bubble tip anemone. Going to run kessil 360W on it and use the vector a M1 return pump. I chose that pump because I’m using it on my other 2 tanks and it’s been working very well. Cleaning the tank will start shortly. Build will be at a slower pace as I want to use mostly cash to fund it.

Been lagging a bit. Going up to Clearlake to get away from the Bay Area. purchased the lights I’m going to use on this tank. I have radions on my other reef but decided to with kessils on this one. Huge shout out to my LFS Aquatic Collections in Hayward for the hook up

A few updated pics. Sadly my 225 had to come down thank to our awesome power company slapping me with a fat overage charge. My solar could not keep. Plus these losers just won another increase. Most of those corals from that tank made it into my 200. Some fish did as well. More pics coming later

Switched back to the radions I was using. Saving to buy the gen 4’s but that’s a bit into the future. Tank is still doing well

Finally pulled the trigger and did some upgrades. Gone are the old radion gen 2 lights and a old Jebao powerhead. Now if I could reconnect to EcoSmart live I would be able to set the lights.
