I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

you need to put it in a reactor. you can buy two little fishies reactors for pretty cheap

Phosban Reactor

you'll beed to buy a pump for it but a slow rate powerhead like maxijet400 should be fine for it

180 lbs of sand. About 200 lbs of live rock in DT and another 30 in the sump.

Got home from work last night to a diatom explosion so not so pretty right now, but most everything looking good.

I'm following your build, it seems to be going pretty well. I love the aquascaping. I am trying to use you and Greenmaster's builds as a guideline. I am starting a 250 gallon reef build next month.
