I'm new to the site but have been in the hobby for about 7 years. My current setup is a 120 mixed reef. Primarily LPS and softies, but have been moving more towards SPS over the last year.
Lighting-4 48" T5 bulbs(2 blue+, 2 coral+) with 2 gen 3 XR15
Flow-2 MP40
Sump-DIY 3 chamber 40 gal breeder
Nyos Quantum 160 skimmer
BRS dual reactor(carbon/GFO when needed)
BRS 2 part dosing
Marine Pure bricks and balls

I'm planning a re-scape next month to switch to all SPS. I'll be adding an additional XR30 and 2 Nero 5's on the back wall. Aquarock is making a custom rock structure that I cant wait for. Should be here mid August. Future updates to come.

My AquaRocks rock structure is done and will be shipping out today. We had him make a few modifications to the original and am very happy with how it looks. I cant wait to see it in person.
We added in our additional XR30 and Nero 5's last weekend. Unfortunately I have to go out of town next weekend so I probably won't have time to put the new rockwork in. Looking like the last week in August everything will be done.

That structure is pretty dope!
Thanks! I've been told from a few local reefers that it looks even better in person. AquaRocks did a great job and was great to work with.
I've got a few more frags to get to fill it up and RAP Chicago is next weekend. I have 3 more from TSA on hold and hopefully I can find a few more at the show.

The tank is doing good with growth from almost everything. A few changes were made over the last 3 months as well. I'm in the process of adding a frag/grow out tank to the system, just waiting on a few items to get back in stock. Im out of room in the display but still have more corals I want. Hopefully a lowboy will be big enough. I also swapped my 2 G3 XR15s for 2 G4 XR30s. And of course I added corals, maybe went a little crazy but they were on sale.
