SeanMonster's First Reef Tank (90g)

Well, it finally arrived and is set up. Set up includes:

90 gallon reef ready tank
TEK T5 lights
ASM G1X protein skimmer
Mag 7 pump
Koralia 1050 ph
Visitherm 300 heater
60 lbs live rock
40 lbs sand

I have included pictures below. Still slightly cloudy. Think it will be better tomorrow

Oh, forgot one more piece of equipment. Decided to opt for the auto top-off unit.

That will be one of my next purchases as well. Tired of topping off, about 1 gallon a day!

Not that I have had a full 24 hours with it yet, but it's pretty slick. I think it was worth the $125.

Nice looking tank! What are you thinking about stocking? Is it going to be a FOWLR or a reef?

Going reef. Already have a 180g FO. Right now I'm thinking pair of clowns, 3-4 chromis (or is it chromi?), some kind of goby, maybe a basslet, kole tang, and (a big maybe) a mandarin way down the road.

As far as coral, I'm looking at green bubble coral and fire coral. Not really decided beyond that.

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