Hey guys, I've recently acquired a new to me Reef Savvy custom 65g Lagoon with ghost overflow and Reed Savvy signature phantom bottom. Tank dimensions: 48"L x 18"W x 17"H (63.58g) This is an upgrade from my IM Nuvo 25g AIO that I've had set up on and off for the past 2 years. I'm still in the process of collecting the equipment and planning the build.

Sump: Fiji Cube Fiji-30 Advanced Reef Sump 2nd Gen(ordered)
Pump: Reef Octopus Octo Varios 2
Skimmer: Bubble Magus Curve 5
Lighting: x2 AI Hydra 26HD with AI single Arm mounts
Powerhead(s): AI Nero 5
ATO: Tunze 3152 with 5g ATO Reservoir

This is my first time owing a tank with a sump/plumbing so any advice is greatly appreciated. Powerhead, lighting and ATO comes from my 25g, still debating on adding a second AI Nero 5 and a 3rd AI Hydra 26HD. Also would like to add a UV to this tank.

A little update before the new year. Tank is 4 months old and and looks to be balancing out. Has seen hair algae and a bit of high phosphates and nitrates. Levels came back down after adding a refugium with chaeto that i have to harvest every week and its leveling my nutrients. Also very glad i added a Kole Tang and fighting conch, they are the champs at keeping algae at bay in the display.
