Thanks TC,

Its a custom made 66"x20"x24" tank with low iron front panel and polished edges with corner weir. The weir is twin pipe design with 40mm pipes with a 32mm return.
Return pump is a Eheim compact 5000, cracking pump if i do say so.
Skimmer is a ATI 200 as are is the lighting unit, ATI 8x80w Power Module.
Tube combo, (front to back) Aqua Blue special, Aqua Blue special, Blue plus, KZ Fiji purple, Aqua blue special, blue plus, aqua blue special and last another blue plus.
Water movement is done with 2 Vortechs MP40s on reef crest about 90% power.
For Cal and alk i use a Korallia C1501 cal reactor with crushed coral media this keeps up with the high demand of cal, alk, mag that i need for my hard corals.
I do run a phos reactor with rowaphos in, but only about 100ml, as i do abit of KZ zeo dosing. I use Start7, Bak and Sponge power but no stones, this keeps my nutrient levels at 0.
I also have a 7" DSB in the sump with helps.

Fish, i have 18 in there now ranging from anthias to tangs and angels, just let me know if you like a full list.

Corals, sps- montis digis and caps, acros, birds nest and more.
lps- torch, cat, pearl,

The tanks been up and running since christmas so it is jusy over 4 months old. No problems really its been pretty smooth.
I am pretty much done with stocking it, just enjoying it grow.
Roll on another 4 months.

Thanks

P.S if you want some more pics just say. LOL

I just redid my tank. Now I wanna go cry. I'm not kidding when I say that looks amazing. Easily in my top 5 marine tanks ever seen. Dude you have done an amazing job. Congratulations.

And Aggersberg: If you stick around on here, you can talk to me when you decide to do one. I'd love to help you out. Espeacially cause I could give you a few frags!
