Well let's start from Day 1, I started my saltwater journey after being in freshwater game for 6-8 years. Well last year with a 29 gallon tank later I started the salt water tank and later in the year my wife cousin gave me his 65 gallon tank with a clown and a goby. This past Thanksgiving I pulled a trigger and got a red sea 300 Xl from my lfs.

Anywhoo we are here
Here's what I'm currently running on this tanks
- Ai 64 Hd

Current life stock

This looks good. We are pulling the trigger as well on a XL 300 "We" were looking at the 250, but my wife saw the XL 300 and decided that's the one she wants (since apparently I "stole" her 120 and is now a SPS dominate tank).

Looking forward to seeing how the fuge takes shape. She's on the fence on whether she wants one in it.

You reversed the skimmer and fuge section?

I would upgrade the single AI 64 to 2 Red Sea Reef 90 LEDs. you will get better coverage, AND red Sea did a lot of research, (on their YouTube channel), on lighting and determined corals mainly use the 360-480nm spectrum and not so much the whites. My daughter's E-170 has one and her corals are just outstanding.
