So I finally started building my first reef tank. I have been doing planted freshwater tanks for about a year and half. My friend that got me into the planted tanks made the jump to reef tank last year and of course I followed. Figured o post a build thread so hopefully people will point out anything I'm doing wrong and if I do something right maybe it can help others. The tank is a 75 gallon aqueon tank the wife bought me for Christmas. I got it drilled for the synergy reef shadow overflow. Equipment: - Trigger systems saphire 34 sump - Vertex somatic skimmer - Vertex 1.5 ml media reactor - Ecotech M1 return pump - Ecotech MP10QD X 2 - Kessil A160WE X 4 with gooseneck mount - Apex 2016 controller with a second EB832 - Avanced acrylic ATO reservoir - Tunze osmolator ATO - 100 pounds of reef-cleaners rock I think that's most of it. My plan will be to start with LPS but eventually move towards an SPS dominated tank once I have an understanding of what I'm doing. So far I have the stand frame built and the plumbing dry fitted. Plumbing is done with red schedule 40 PVC and schedule 80 valves and unions. The pictures are of the plumbing dry fitted, but I think I got it the way I want. I ran into an issue with the shadow overflow blocking one of the kessil mounts so I noticed the cover so that the mount fits in overflow.
