As is tradition for me, new year, new tank.
I recently came across a deal I couldn't pass up on an 150G Crystal Dynamics peninsula tank to replace my 90G Elos. The Elos has some scratches that are hard to get past and i'm not much of a fan of the older style overflow on the tanks.
The tank is 48L x 30W x 24T I absolutely love the dimensions on this tank and even tho it's not that much larger than the Elos it feels 3 times bigger, I love the wide footprint of the tank.
I have been inspired by several SPS tanks that I have seen lately and will be doing a full on bonsai style aquascape intended for SPS only, no LPS or softies will be in this tank.
Luckily all the equipment from the old tank will be more than adequate for this tank and the sump and all the filtration will easily transfer over to this build with the exception of possibly adding an additional radion xr30 due to the width of this tank.
The tank will be going where the existing one currently is. I am currently waiting for rock to show up so that I can scape the tank, drain the elos, transfer fish and coral to my lagoon QT tank and then fill the new tank.
Thanks for checking it out! Next update should be Sunday and hopefully will be with a filled tank!
