Greetings all!
Here is the new version of my tank thread that I created for my home forum PNWMAS.* Hope you enjoy and have a wonderful day!-Keli

The main display is a 20 gallon TRUVIEW acrylic.This has been plumbed with two additional 20 gallon aquariums.The estimated actual water volume for the entire system is 50 gallons.

QUICK PARTS LIST:
1 Large return pump
1 small pump
1 Maxi-Jet 1200
1 ODYSSEA skimmer
2 Black box LED units
1 Maxspect Lighting fixture
TUNZE ATO


A black box LED unit is used for lighting.This tank could have been made specifically just for these types of lights.I get really good coverage throughout the coral scape.The Maxi -Jet 1200 is located in the far right corner.

Thank you @helen ann ! Sorting through my photobucket account took hours.

The sump uses a Ocean Revive LED unit.It houses the return,skimmer and a algae scrubber of sorts.I harvest at least three different types of algae including hair,chaetomorpha and purple ochtodes.

That guy keeps a eye on the underground for me.He will stay inside there all day long.You may not be able to see that he was actually born with a facial deformity.

On the secondary display I recently added a Maxspect lighting fixture.I have a small pump running during the day for circulation.Notice the lovely freshwater background.

It amazing, we start with a striped clean tank and after about a year we fill it with all kinds of different things:) Great job on the redo.

The Fish

These two out shine all of the corals.Their black and white coloration is very solid and they literally glow.Both are locally captive bred ,Black Ocellarius "Colby" clowns. I hope and check for eggs frequently.

The pair of clowns host the Frog spawn,Pectina and chalice in that order. Apparently clowns will eat the sweeper tentacles off of all these varieties.I witnessed the female trimming one day.Reportedly you can even trim them yourself!

I suppose this is how I have managed to keep the Pectina next to all the other corals.Most notably a chalice,lobos and SPS.

That's just amazing. There's no way I'd have the courage to put that many stonies in a tank. Lol.
How are you dosing?

Mrs K, let me confess that I feel guilty for never have to take the time in order to visit your build thread.
Many reasons and yet no excuses.
You don't see many hobbyist that are dedicated to their tank for that size.
Many upgrade as bigger is better but not always, you proofed this with your amazing reef.
Keep up the great work, girl.
