Over the last week I decided to get started on the 90g I impulse purchased back in Feb!
Building it out as a peninsula will make it a nice room divider (once I eventually break down the cube to the left of it). The plan is to use most of the equipment from my existing 74 tower in this tank when its ready...
Tank: Deep Blue Professional 90g (48x18x24). 1/4" Glass
Stand: Homemade (studs with Z-Clip attached birch panels)
Lighting: Reefbrite XHO Actinic 36" x 2, ATI 39w T5 x 2
Sump: Trigger Emerald 26
Overflow: Fiji Cube Lo Pro 1200
COMING OFF THE TANK
Control: Neptune APEX, Neptune DOS
ATO: Avast ATO w/ Trigger 5g Reservoir
Feeder: Avast Plank
UV: Lifegard Pro-Max 55w
Skimmer: Aquamaxx ConeS Q-1 Protein Skimmer
Return: Ecotech Vectra M2
Powerhead: Ecotech MP40QD
Some changes between this tank and my current DT:
- Bare Bottom! Tired of cleaning nasty stand (and I've actually come to like the look)
- While it will still be a 'Mixed Reef', it'll have much more of a Euphyllia/LPS focus that SPS. Will likely keep a few hardy Montiporas and Slimer/Birdsnest along the top of the water, but the focus will be torches/hammers/etc.
- Not happy with the Radion on the cube - replaced with T5s and Reefbrites.
- All of my existing livestock will come over (White Bristletooth Tang, Borbonius Anthias, Lawnmower Blenny), and I am adding a small school of Sunset Anthias and a Foxface.
Stay tuned and join me on my journey to bankruptcy!
