Well, here we go again! After the disaster that was my last attempt at a larger tank this is attempt 2! After lots of searching and contacting manufactures about going custom again I stumbled upon a deal I couldnt pass up 2 things: 1. I type. A lot, so be prepared to read through a lot if you are following along! 2. I also post lots of photos. Unfortunately they are cell phone pictures, and I do not take the time to edit them in photoshop/lightroom. Most turn out pretty good though! Display: Innovative Marine SR-80 (I may bust out the AIO compartments and drill the back.. will see!) Stand: Custom made from previous owner Skimmer: Tunze 9012 DC Lighting: 2 GHL Mitras LX7's Sand: Tropic Eden reef flakes Controlled with apex classic Flow: 2 Jebao dcs 2000 return pumps Flow: 4 mp40's (bought enough for a larger tank, might as well use them all at a lower speed) Tunze 3155 ato Eventually running apex dos with 2 ESV 2 part for consumption RSCP salt Occassional GAC from red sea, and brs rox.8 in a media bag (not reactor) Current fish moving to this build include: 1 Clownfish (9 years old) 1 SMALL purple tang 1 Starry blenny 1 Orchid dotty back Current inverts moving: 5-10 Rainbow Bubble tip anemones ( Have 10 now, Will likely give some away/sell some locally during the transition) 1 Sherman Rose anemone from Pieces of the Ocean 1 Black widow anemone purchased locally 1-3 Maxi Mini carpet anemones (Have 3, but have been unsuccessful in the past from removing them from rock/glass) 3-5 rock flower anemones (have 5 but 2 I dont think will make it) 1 anemone crab ~5 scarlet hermits Current corals include (but not limited to) Large hammer colony (20ish heads) Purple torch (4-5 heads) AoG zoa colony Gobstoppers zoa colony WWC Halle Berrey colony ORA Purple Stylo mini colony OG Tubbs blue zoas OG rasta's Cali tort BC Orange tipped albrolhosensis Teal hammer coral Multi colored splatter hammer coral ORA Tricolor Valida mini colony Sky blue Yuma The plan for this build is going to be a very mixed setup. Zoas, anemones, euphillia, ricordia/yumas and a few sticks will make it in. Ideally I will be able to run this display tank (or even drilled with sump and stuff) until I move (hopefully in about 3 years or so) and then upgrade to a custom size of 48"x30"x20". During this time, I plan on slowly moving towards more high end stuff. Will likely phase out the standard rainbow bubble tips and try to get a more ultra colored one. Hopefully the black widow and sherman will also thrive. I would like to eventually pick up a sunburst and or lemon drop as well. First things first though is zoas and palys. They are my SO's favorite thing in the tank, so as soon as this is up and stable after the transfer I will be on the hunt for a few nice ones (including WWC Purple monsters, RR Pink diamonds, CC Vamps in drag and so on) I have already contacted innovative marine and they did confirm that the back panel can be drilled, as well as removing the AIO components will not effect the integrity of the tank. So this is an option for me, and I will go that route if I have to.
