Hi everyone,

First off I'd like to say hello, thank you and thank you in advance. I've lurked around this forum for many years and obtained very important information throughout my struggles and successes. So thank you to each and everyone of you. Due to the recent pandemic I've had more time on my hands to be able to dive right back into this hobby. I'm currently running two tanks while building a third :oops:.

Current set ups:

90 gallon tank (Pretty much Fish only)
Sump with bioballs, Euro-reef protein skimmer, UV sterilizer (forgive me for not knowing all the model numbers and specifics on this tank, it was gifted to me long ago)
Orbit Marine IC pro dual LED strips, dual eflux power heads and loop system
Two additional Koralia power heads
Return pump unknown (part of the gift lol)
ATO system

45 Gallon JBJ AIO (Used as a QT tank)

AI Prime 16HD Reef
Currently running Matrix, Filter Floss and Foam blocks for filtration in the media basket
Hydor heater
Innovative Marine Protein skimmer
Jeboa power head
Custom made stand
JBJ ATO

150 Gallon Tank (Currently DIY-ing the hell out of this thing)

Dual overflow
DIY sump out of a 55 gallon long Petco tank
Dual 4 inch filter socks
Finnex heater
Coralife UV
Current USA eflux return pump (1900 gph)
4 Hydra 52's non HD
AI Director
I haven't decided on a protein skimmer, doser, power heads or sand yet. Any recommendations?

My plan is to break down the 90 gallon and only run the 150 and JBJ. Sorry for the lengthy post everyone! I figured, don't we all want to know what everyone is running?

While I know you will love the space. It is a shame to break down such a beautiful tank. Glad to have you. And good luck.

Thank you, and I know! I dont want to break the 90g down it has alot of sentimental value. But I also don't want to spread myself too thin .

Hey everyone, just a quick update. I finally made my choice on sand and went with four 40lbs bags of Ocean Direct live sand. I know sand is always up for debate but some how I got a killer deal on it. 160lbs for about $65! Petsmart was running a clearance promotion for $21 a bag. I know the numbers don't match but somehow the employee at the register also gave me 50% off on 2 bags that were already on clearance lol! Meaning, I paid about $20 for two bags of the four! Granted I had to hit four petsmarts but in my area, they aren't far from each other.
