Hello fellow reefers! Welcome to my Red Sea Reefer Peninsula 500 build thread! This system will house 90% acroporas. I love minimalist reefs so I’ve carefully selected a handful of SPS to add to the tank. I’m also planning on adding two angels (Red Sea Regal Angel and Bandit Angel) so softies and most LPS are pretty much out.

Equipment List:
Flow: MP40wQD x2 and Red Sea Wave 25
Return Pump: Apex COR20
Lighting: 48” White Giesemann Stellar with Ecotech Radion XR30s G5
Skimmer: Undecided
Sterilizer:Aqua UV 57W
Controller: Neptune Apex
Cooling: 1/4th HP Chiller
Reactor: Vertex RX6D CA reactor with kamoer pump and plantdoser regulator
Testing: Neptune Trident

epic tank!
and nice peninsula I got the 650 coming in a few months :D

you gonna keep the smaller tank up and running? if not should make a Zoa island with your whole current scape.
Thanks and congrats on your 650! And yes, I’m going to keep the small tank for zoas and torches!
