As reef hobbyists part of the fun of aquariums is the equipment and cool gadgets! We all have wish lists and items we want to purchase but sometimes we have to wait and save or for some other reason just wait. With that in mind let's talk about what that BIG purchase for 2021 will be!

1. What BIG equipment purchase will you have in 2021?

2. Why did you wait until this year to make the purchase?

So it has begun. We have an all glass 120 from 2008. Its been up and running. The equipment is all old. Tank need an overhaul. Talked to the wife. So we are all in. Just ordered a new tank. Planet Aquarium 175. Bought some things during black Friday deals. GHL profilux 4e. 2- Tamco 40 gallon water barrels. Found a great furniture builder to build us a stand. AquaMaxx Cones DRC-3 protien skimmer. Some new pumps. Like to buy a couple Vortech Mp40s. We have an old Orbit 8 lamp T5 fixture that needs to be rebuilt. All the wires are pretty frail in it. The only thing is the fixture is 4' and the tank is 5'. Hopefully I can buy a couple led fixtures to fill in the gaps. The list is still growing and my pockets are getting really light. Hope to maybe do a tank build.

I am going to be upgrading my Skimmer. I know it is hard to beat the Aquamaxx EM200 with my limited space but will start to evaluate which one i can fit and that can be better than the Aquamaxx and if it can have DC pump.

Midwest Custom is making me a 115 gallon acrylic tank with tall stand and canopy. Should be finished by February. Also buying two Gen 2 Phillips Coral Care lights, sump, skimmer, twin Varios pumps as well as other misc. equipment. Will use the Reef Octo Algae Reactor and Red Sea Reef waves and MP 10's from my current 50 gallon corner tank once larger tank is setup and cycled.
