I haven't done a build thread on my last few setups because they usually just end up stalling out at some point. So, I wasn't going to do one for this build either but this is my biggest (and best?) build in my 10+ years on the hobby. Why not share it with the community? Oh, and I'm also part of this summer's 'Bermuda Triangle' tank tour so why not share a bit beforehand? Anyway, after selling off my 120g awhile back and downsizing to a couple smaller tanks (and just generally getting a bit weary of it all) I was ready to upsize just a bit. Around Thanksgiving of 2016 I purchased a 66g SCA tank and stand thinking this would be the ideal size, not too big, not too small. I'm sure you all know how this story goes. My wants and needs outgrew the 66 quickly so in November of 2017 I jumped on a tank/stand/canopy deal for a 150g eurobraced setup from SCA. SCA Starfire Eurobraced 150g Trigger Triton 44 sump Reef Octopus Varios 6 return pump (should have gotten the Varios 8) Lifereef 24" skimmer with Waveline 10000 II DC pump 2x Reefbrite 250w MH pendants w/Reefbrite XHO LEDs 2x Tunze 6095 powerheads GHL Profilux 4 controller GHL Profilux 2.1 doser Delivery day: I got a few of my co-workers to stop over and help carry the tank and stand into the house. We didn't have suction cups (I wish we had) and I warned them that as soon as we got into the house the tank would fog up so be sure they had a good grip for the 7 steps down to the lower level. They did great: The tank in place and it's predecessor off to the right: Tank inhabitants temp home on the left: That last photo was taken on December 22nd. The list of fish in that tub included (as my memory serves): - Potter's angel - Potter's wrasse - 5 or 6 Rhomboid female wrasses - Kole Tang - pair of Blue Star Leopard wrasses - pair of Wyoming White clowns - Biota Coral Beauty angel - Biota Court Jester goby Over the course of the next week to 10 days (over Christmas when I wasn't super attentive to the tub, but threw in some food daily) all fish died except the leopard wrasse pair. I can only assume Velvet as I didn't notice ANY symptoms of illness in my brief observations. The clown pair were the last to go and I did watch them start to breathe heavily and get skittish but at that point I just was done with it all. The leopards however never skipped a beat.
