    Hi,
    I thought I will post some pics of my reef. Reef had been set up in late 2017, recycled it for 2 months before I started anything.
    180 Gallons, bow front. I am not too fond of a bow front anymore. It was a freshwater goldfish tank I converted to a reef. I have a 75-gallon sump.

    I bought the poly lab lens, so I thought I will try posting some pictures.

    Let me know if you have any questions. Thank you

    Nice Looking Tank! I have always loved bowfronts. I have had 2.... one a 72 gal and the other a 135 corner bow over the years. I am back to a rectangle... kind of miss the curve...

    I think you did a good thing by going with a rectangle. A rectangle makes more sense to me for water flow and light placement.

    Looks great to me.

    Big fan of bubble corals. Yours really looks healthy.

    Thanks for sharing

    I bought the bubble and leather together. Had them for a year. But the leather closed up for a good 2 months or so. My nitrates were zero. Started dosing nitrates and the leather opened up. I did lose some corals because of zero nitrates and my ALK being 9.3.
