My SCA 150. Tank is about 6 months old.

Using 2 XR30 and 1 XR15. Only couple SPS.
I recently added a Cal Rex with very low calcium consumption. I am getting ready for SPS.

Love that Frog Spawn. The purple tip Frog Spawn is one of my favorites. It seems hard to find these days. I just found a frag for sale from a local reefer. I had a huge one in 2003. It was 18" across and I had a pair of Percula clowns that hosted in it.

Looking for advice...

I have the SCA 180 PNP with upgraded stand and canopy. I have my skimmer and Clarisea 5000 filter roller in the sump.
The stand gets very sweaty and moist. Its to the point that I can smell it outside the stand.

Any ideas or suggestions on what I can do?

Hi everyone!
I am in planning stages of getting my first tank and I was looking at the 50 gallon or the 66 gallon SCA pnp tank. I was wondering if there would be any extra equipment I would need to get if I go with the 66 gallon tank. Im not sure if I would need 1 light (say a kessil) for the 50 and 2 for the 66.

Probably gonna wanna buy some pvc and unions to hard plumb it is what I did also the return pump isn't great atleast for my 150 but will work same with skimmer and whats the size difference between the 50 and 66 couldn't be much could always just buy the one light and get another down the road
