As some of you know in March of this year I sold off my 70g reef and moved the few corals I wanted to keep into my 8g nano. Well I made it 4 months before I decided it was time to have my reef back....and then some
I've had this setup for a few months now but I ran into some snags while refurbishing the stand, The original tank I got was really scratched up so I sold that and was able to get a brand new tank in it's place (that's probably the last brand new tank I'll ever buy, they're flipping expensive. God bless craigslist and the petco $1/gal
sale lol). I love tanks that have a lot of front to back depth so I was super stoked when I found a tank with a 48"x24"x24" footprint.
This will be a LPS
and softs dominated tank with some SPS
thrown in. I have two other smaller reefs that I'll be combining into this setup. I'm being much more selective with the corals that are going into this tank than I was with my 70g.
Here is a quick rundown of the system
Corals (as of right now):
- 120g Drilled with dual overflow tank
- 40g sump
- Bubble-Magus Curve 5 Skimmer
- Fluval 300w heater
- Marineland 1300gph return pump
- two Taotronic like LED units
- Toxic Frogspawn
- Green Tip Torch
- Aussie Golden Torch
- Blue Lobo
- Green/blue Lobo
- Red/orange/blue Acan
- Green Finger Leather
- Blue Ridge
- Multiple Zoas
- Multiple Ricordeas/Yumas
- Blue, Green, and Metallic Orange Mushrooms
- Ocellaris Clownfish
- Yellow Watchman Goby
- More to come, just not sure what yet.
Without further ado here is a bunch of pictures to bring this current!
