Hello everyone, just thought I'd share my 120 gallon mixed reef progress. I used to have a 75 gallon Mixed Reef set up which was running for about 10 months or so. When I was in the process of moving, I decided to upgrade to a 120 gallon 4 ft long x 2 ft wide x 2 ft height with a corner overflow. The 75 gallon tank that was at my old place was transfered to the new 120 gallon at the new place on August 20th..
My current equipment is as follows:
40 gallon breeder sump/frag tank
Soon to add 10 gallon macro refug
ATI Bubble Master 250 skimmer
Eheim 1262 as return pump
1 x Vortech MP40
1 x Vortech MP10
ALK/CAL auto dosers
Auto top off system
Apex controller
Lighting:
1 x Sunlight Supply Lumen Max Elite
1 x Radium 250W bulb
1 x CoralVue LuXcore 250W-400W selectable MH electronic ballast
Will also be adding some T-5 supplements soon.

Current view of the tank as of today
Almost 2 months after it was set up, still dialing everything in/setting up the rest of the equipment..

Thank you! My goal is to have as much open space as possible for the fish to swim around and enjoy.

How did you go about constructing the floating island? Looks great!
Well, there is one pillar in the front middle That is kind if hidden then two pillars in the back two sides.
