Hey all! Currently in the process for planning for a new tank and wanted to get some input on the equipment that I am planning for it. The tank is going to be the Red Sea Reefer XXL 750 (160 gal with 40 gal sump). All the major equipment I'll list below. Tank will mostly be a mix, LPS heavy with some softies and SPS in the future. Any thoughts or experiences on any of it would be awesome!

- Lights- Radion XR15 G5 Blues (4 total) (not sure if I should go with 5?)
- Return Pump- Ecotech Vectra M2
- Skimmer- Reef Octopus Regal 250INT
- Powerheads- 1 Maxspect Gyre XF 350 on each side with 2 AI Nero 5's on the back

Will be running a fuge in the sump as well and was thinking the Kessil H80 Tuna Flora would be a good option, but don't have any experience with it!

Thanks for reading and I'll do my best to document everything along the way!

So I actually made a change to the tank (because I couldn't find any of the Red Sea Reefers in black) and ended up getting the Waterbox Reef 220.6. It's on the way! Also just wanted to post a complete gear list and will continue to update and post pics as stuff comes in and the tank starts to come together!

Tank, Stand, Sump- Waterbox Reef 220.6
Lighting- Aquatic Life 61" T5HO (4 ATI blue plus bulbs) hybrid fixture with 4 Radion XR15 Blues
Return Pump- Ecotech Vectra M2
Protein Skimmer- Reef Octopus Regal 150SSS
Roller Mat- Theiling Compact
Poweheads- Maxspect Gyre XF350 on either side and two MP40s on the back
Heaters- two Eheim Jager 250W
ATO- XP Aqua Duetto Dual Sensor ATO
Fuge Light- Kessil H80 Tuna Flora
Controller- Apex

Can't wait to get it all in and get it set up!!!

A little update on the tank and was hoping to get some thoughts on my fish stocking list! The tank is in place, but still dry and waiting to get a couple things to finish the plumbing! Aquascape is built as well! Just finishing mortaring it all together and will post pics when it's in the tank! My planned stocking list is below along with the "phases" they will go in. Also planning on getting all my fish in prior to any coral, so it will just be fish for a few months! Would love any thoughts or experiences!
