    Hey everyone. Just moved into our new home, and I finally have room for big tank again!

    Once our old house sells I'm going to start renovation on my basement man cave. The big tank will eventually be going down there.

    I'm looking to get another medium sized tank set up now, the biocube I have now is just too darn small and the LED's in it I think are the reason I had so much trouble with corals.

    Once I find the set up I want I'll be fast tracking that set up. My biocube has been up for roughly 4 years and has been on cruise control more or less the entire time. I have my old clown fish going on 14 years old now, and an ORA Orchid Dottyback. Live rock, and a ton of hair and algae lol.

    Looking to get something in 60-90 gallon range set up. Anyone have anything for sale?

    Hows everyone doing? Any old schoolers still left?

    That sounds almost exactly like what I'm looking for. Can you send me some photos please? If the stand for the tank is for sale too please include photos of those.

    LEDs are strange. Sometimes it seems like everyone has great success with them except me, lol. I went back to T5 for my last tank (currently tankless) and was pretty happy. It seems like everyone these days is in love with ultra blue LED lighting, can't stand it myself. What are you thinking you'll use on this new tank?

    I tried the knock off LED route and it was ok, nothing spectacular. My original reef had T5’s, that worked great. My 180 Mixed reef was awesome with 250 Halides.

    This 60ish Gallon tank I’m either going with a higher end LED fixture with proven results (Radion/Kessil), or I might go back to T5’s. I do still have a lumenbrite pendant and 250 watt electronic halide ballast, but I would prefer to keep power consumption to a minimum.
