I currently have a 20gallon AIO drop off and a 75gallon mixed reef tank. Both of which will be going into the new Waterbox 220.6 once it arrives and cycles. In the mean time I need to start figuring out some rock scape ideas. Right now im thinking of doing 2-3 pillars/island type of things and possibly bridge one or two of them together. I will post updates as it comes along but this is my current equipment-

Ive currently got hydra 32’s on my 75 gallon so I either plan to get 2 more or a local reefer to me has 4 radions for sale I may end up getting instead.

I have 2 Neptune Wav makers as well as a dos and complete apex system.

As for a return pump I’m currently using a Syncra SDC 9.0.

I currently have 110 lbs of rock on the way and plan on using 4 20lb bags of pink Fiji sand.

If y’all have any input or suggestions or tips please feel free to share them. I’m really excited for this journey and even more excited to take y’all along! I’ve attached photos of my current tanks.

So just a little update today, I got the tank spot all tapped out, holes drilled for hanging the lights and centered the tank on the wall.

I also went ahead and bout 80lbs of pink Fiji sand, a marine pure block and 2 new 300 watt heaters.

LIGHTS- I came across a really good deal locally today. I traded a laptop for 3 gen 3 radion 30’s. While they have some age he only had them at 40% for 8 hours a day for a year or two, so figured crossed I can get some use out of them. I plan on spacing my lights as follows.
Hydra 32-Radion-Radion-Hydra.

I was able to get 1 of the towers built today and is now soaking. Let me know what y’all think
