Yea I'm going reef with it lps some nems don't know what fishes yet. I'm using water from my DT to push it along. Had the tank running with saltwater for a few months just added sand and one rock going to get some cured rock later on. Got some rock in the filter also will add some green from my refugium later after cloud goes away.

awesome, i think I'm going to go with all medium light zoas polys and a few mushrooms. then in november im buying a tank from my dad, you can see it on the first page of this thread, and that tank will be lps sps and anemone. I'm going with bridgelux 120w dimmables, i just ordered one, and if I'm satisfied with them i will get two more for the 75. you should do a build thread!!
