I have the book, Thats what go me to finally take te plunge. I have looked at the eco metheod. I have a customer who I set up a 180 for with an eco system and it is doing great for the last 2 years.
On this tank i am going to run an ASM G5 skimmer with 4 Tunze streams with controllers ( not sure of the size yet). THe Streams will go into the rocks that Tunze sells to hide the pumps.
Lighting will be 3 or 4 Coralvue 250 14K bulbs with 4-72" VHO
50/50 tubes to compensate for the areas the Halides will be missing with the 36" width.
COrals will be LPS
I just hired the movng company to take it down my steps for me on monday the 20th. They have this cool conveyor that will take it down nice and easy!
Some pics will ome in the next few weeks!
I will probably do a 55 or 75 gallon DSB
/ Macro fuge. The return pump will be an Iwaki or GenX pump rated for 1500 GPH
. I am lettignthe streams take care of most of the water motion so the return pumps does not have to be to big.
