Getting read to do a pretty big upgrade. I currently have a 90 gallon leather dominated reef tank that I will be upgrading to a Red Sea 900 3XL. Going to be a fun project!!!

That sounds awesome, the 900xl is a gorgeous tank. And your 90 already looks awesome. What do you plan to do with the extra space in the new tank? What new livestock are you looking at putting in?

I'm super jealous. Can't wait to see it come together.

You will enjoy the 900; ours has been up fir 15 months and I love it more now than when it was initially installed.

Much appreciated! Im sorry for the long overdue response... Yeah, its a gorgeous tank, and a HEAVY tank as well! Looking to grow more leathers throughout.. I love the way they flow! Livestock? Looking to add a few wrasses and possibly anthias down the road!

So awesome to hear! my lights aren't even connected and I'm mesmerized by it!

I apologize for delay in my response, who would think that 7 month old's had so much energy? LOL

How did you mount (or did you mount) your doser? Did you drill into the RS stand or did you do a cabinet?

My plans for the tank is to go LPS and leathers. I love the movement that they make. My supplies just recently arrived, and when I opened them, I felt like a kid on my birthday! THis is what I'm going to be running:

Return - Vectra L2
Lighting - 4 x AI Hydra 32
Skimmer - RS 900
Reactor - BRS Dual Reactor
Doser: Jebao DP4
Flow - Maxspect 350 Gyre along with variously placed powerheads

My son decided to help me a bit!
