  2. 180 gallon reef

So current build list 180 acrylic reef tank Skimmer - bubble magus curve 7 Return pump - reeflo dart ( I think it’s something like 2500-3000 gph I’ll have to double check) Sump - Deep blue pro maxx reef 200 ( I haven’t seen or heard much about these but I got it for a steal so we’ll see how it works) Reactor - goereef FMC415P for carbon/Gfo Controller - apex Rock - mix of pukani/reefsavers/miscellaneous Lights - one Chinese black box and one 48 inch aquatic life 4 bulb t5 with ATI blue+ x2 and ATI coral+ x2 Want to upgrade to quatic-life 61 inch hybrid with Ecotech or Kessil Power heads - mix match sun sun / hydor koralia / something else that I don’t know the names lol Want to upgrade but not sure which ones yet Co2 scrubber using BRS deluxe reactor and BRS co2 media I’ve bought all the PVC pipe and fittings. I have painted all the pipes red so the color scheme will be white and red. I’ll try to put it all together tomorrow and post some pictures Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Stand is now reinforced and painted. So far that’s two coats of primer and last will be some water proof paint and Calk to seal the stand Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. 180 gallon reef

    January 2016 I started my first saltwater tank. My plan was to keep the tank a couple of years and then upgrade to a 90 or 120 once I got some experience. Fast forward 3 years My wife and I are buying our first home and moving. So we decided to get a larger tank because we have to tear down the 56 column to move anyway. So here we are. I want to give a huge shout out to R1ant04. Without him this wouldn’t be happening so thank you when you see this. Now this is what I have, 180 gallon acrylic with 3) 1 inch holes for overflow and 4) 3/4 inch holes for returns with most of the plumbing. Stand and lighting mount for on top of the tank Along with a 200 gallon vertical water tank And a few odd end parts like a couple external pumps and a bubble magus curve 7 skimmer. Now here are some plans for the immediate future -Clean everything and re-assemble it -Reinforce the stand, honestly I’m sure it will hold up but for peace of mind and longevity I will be adding 2x8s and 2x4s for strength and painting all the inside -AND this is the most important part wait for taxes to come in to upgrade the other parts lol This build will be slow!!!! And that’s the way it should be in this hobby so after I finish the above 3 things I’ll get a parts list and hopefully update this thread once a week or so, so let’s get started Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  10. WTB 120 gallon tank

    My previous post was for a 90 gallon tank but my wife and I just moved into a new house and I talked her in to a larger tank so I’m now Looking for a 120 gallon tank. I have found a few at the LFS but wanted to see what else was out there I live in Panama City now but I have a truck and I’m willing to drive a reasonable distance. It doesn’t need to be drilled/ reef ready as long as it’s good condition and holds water. Please comment here or text me at 850-six 9 one- 8272 to tell me what you have. And again thank you for your time and help Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
