Hello! In about a month I'll be starting my new reef aquarium build! I'm going to be doing a full build series here and on Youtube. I hope if anyone is interested they tag along. The system will consist of 180 gallon aquarium from custom aquariums. Lighting is going to be ether Orphek Atlantic V4s, or ATI Powermodule Hybrid. I'll be running a full Nepture System including the ATK and Flow monitoring system. For internal flow I'll be running 2 Maxspect Gyre 250s, and for return I'll be running a EcoTech Vectra. All other pumps will be Sicce. The ZEOvit will be housed in an Avast Marine Works Vibe. More to come soon! Feel free to check out my youtube channel and see whats happening there. Thanks!

Sounds like this is going to be a fun build to follow! What type of reef are you going to be doing? Sps, mixed, softies etc.

Sounds like it should be a great system once its all up and going. Any pictures of the setup or any other eye candy? I've been running ZeoVit on my 120ish gallon system for almost a year now :)

Mostly stony corals but I would like some organic movement as well. It will be slow and steady as I want to avoid mistakes as much as possible.

I hope it will! All I have are the YouTube videos I have made that just talk about my plans with some aquarium background footage "not my aquariums" My build does not officially start until I move later this month/early next month.

Awesome. If I were you I'd go with a T5 LED combo since you're going to do mostly SPS. I recently switched to T5's and my sps have never looked so good. I'm getting colors out of corals that I never thought were there. With a combo you get the best of both worlds. Just my 2 cents.

Awesome, yes I was leaning strongly towards the ATI Powermodule. Thanks for your 2 cents, it's always welcome here!
