I have a 180 gallon reef. The skimmer is an ASM-G3+ (way more than enough), custom acrylic sump (3 chamber), 1200 gph
return pump, 2 Fluval 300 watt heaters, an Ecotech Vortech MP-60 Powerhead (very pricey but worth it) and a Koralia 1450. For lighting I have an Aquaticlife 8 bulb T5 fixture. Timer is digital and built in to the unit so there is only one cord. Also has 6 2-light LEDs for night time. Have had a ton of success with this tank. I converted it to a reef from fish only after I had my 90 gallon reef up for 2 years.
