I started reefing about 2 years ago and have been addicted since then. The 75gallon started out as mainly LPS and have since been changed to a mixed reef with lots of LPS and SPS mixture. I have a 75gallon display with a 20gallon sump. I have two Tunze 6055 and a K4 for circulation. I run a Eheim 1262 as my return. I also believe in great skimming so I went out and got myself a BK 160. I also run Activated carbon with GFO to control my nutrients. For Alkanitiy and Calcium, I let my calcium reactor take care of that. I do 10-15% water change every 2-3 weeks.
Here are photos of when I started and also of some livestock.

Enjoy!!!

Thanks guys,
These are some older pics, but it is still pretty tidy. The wife has to ok the look and cleaness of everything. The only changes are some of the equipment and of course the corals themselves.

I will be buying the drivers on nanotuners, heatsink from heatsinkusa, and the LEDs from EcgTech. Might start the build in a few weeks or so.

Hey Peter Thang and I checked out those Scolys at QT. I like that multi color one but kinda pricey for QT.

I went there yesterday and most of them are gone I thought? Like I said, I believe the larger ones are going for a little over 2 bills. kind of pricey for his store.

Yeah, the tank runs fairly silent. I had the guy build my sump with an enclosed box for the drain. Unfortunately, this restricts me from using a filter sock. all in all, I am happy with the tank and it is silent enough.

You can always build a sump with an enclosed box that has a door for opening and putting in a filter sock. I forgto to have him do it on mine. My sump is pretty much simple and the first few pictures is pretty much what you see.
