Been lurking a while here but never actually posted anything so I thought i'd start off with my tank build.

The tank itself was custom made by Crystal Dynamics and the stand was made by Neptune Aquatics in San Jose, California.
I plan for it to be mixed reef with lots of wrasses. All together it took about a year and a half to assemble the equipment and put everything together. Hopefully I will be posting lots of pictures.
|Equipment|
- x2 Ecotech MP40WQD
- Ecotech Vectra L1 (Return)
- Ecotech Vectra M1 (Manifold)
- Vertex Alpha 170
- Vertex RX-U 1.5
- ReefBreeder 48 (Gen 1)
- Giesemann Razor T5 Retro
- Neptune Systems Apex
- Custom Trigger Systems Sump (44")
- x2 Aquatop THC300
- 120 LBS Real Reef Rock
- Synergy Ghost Overflow
- Tunze Osmolator
- BRS 150 GPD 6 Stage Universal Plus RODI System

|Fuge|
The display fuge is run off of the manifold that is powered by the Vectra M1. The fuge is a 20 gallon long aqueon tank with a stand I quickly threw together. The light is a kessil H350.

|Stocking|
So far I have;
Cirrhilabrus nahackyi (PAIR)
Cirrhilabrus bathyphilus (FEMALE)
Cirrhilabrus rhomboidalis (FEMALE)
Pseudocheilinops ataenia (PAIR)
Macropharyngodon negrosensis
Macropharyngodon geoffroy
Wetmorella nigropinnata
Talbot damsel
Sunburst anthias
Starry blenny
Green chromis
Sifter goby - originally a pair but one of them disappeared a few weeks ago :(

Following! Love your Wetmorella! Those are one of my favorite fish, and reminds me how much I miss Possum.... Sounds like an awesome build! 31" depth must be incredibly fun to work in. That's a lot of great space front to back; I bet it *feels* like the same as side to side. Cool tank man! Looking forward to more pics, great skills on photography too. Is that another hobby of yours? Looks like it is.

I love the Wetmorella and ataenias also. Some of my favorite fish.
I just recently got into photography a few weeks ago. A good camera helps. I found a Nikon D610 for a pretty good deal so I picked it up.
Thanks!!!
Very nice pics!
