I just picked up a 90g reef tank on Sunday and I'm excited to learn all about this hobby. I am not new to saltwater tanks though; I've had various tanks over the past 10 years but never had any experience with reef tanks. I got this setup at a really good deal; one that I couldn't pass on. It's a 90g tank with about a 30-40g sump, skimmer, and powerheads. I added an AquaticLife T5-6 bulb light to it as well.
The rock work was already done by the previous owner but we had to disassemble 60% of it because it wouldn't fit in the buckets. So I spent the majority of last night zip tying and placing the rock where I thought it looked nice. I liked how he had a "bridge" effect with the rock.
At any rate, here are some pictures:
Thanks mel, I drove about 2 hours to get it and let me tell you....the rid home was BRUTAL.....it smelt like low tide in my mini-van and we had the windows down the whole way home. In the majority of other states, this would be ok, but in FL, the humidity is about 99% and it was close to 100 on Sunday....so heat & humidity combined with an empty fish tank but stll had the sand in it made for an interesting ride home, especially trying to eat!
All in all though I am super happy I found this deal and hope to make the tank something spectacular! I will probably add fish in a week or so.
