Skimmer: Nyos Quantum 160 or 190
Rock: CaribSea Dry Live Rock. Variety of rocks, shapes and shelves
Salt: Tropic Marin Pro Reef
Powerheads: 2 x MP40 for starters or 2 Tunze Turbelle controllable streams
Lighting: This is the tricky part.
I wanted the 60” ATI T5/LED fixture but they don’t make them at the moment.
I could do 2 x 36” ATI Hybrid but not sure if there will be dead spots as there will be some space between both fixtures.
Next option will be the 60” Giesemann Stellar Hybrid or Aquatic Life 60” X18 (newer style)
Still deciding between 4 x 32 HD or 6 Prime 16 HD
Might consider the Kessil A360 for the Hybrid but no real experience with them. Please feel free to chime in with your experiences and advice.
More to come
Missed ur azz round these parts sir. I'll be following this build.
@HouseofStark you have the new Kessil hybrid and you tank looks awesome.
Thanks @RSnodgrass, I run the Aquatic Life Hybrid on my 60 gal cube 24" I'm relatively new to the hobby..This is my first tank, been up for 2 years now , so I was looking for set it and forget it lighting and not spend $1K per fixture.
Started with sofies and LPS, last 2 months trying my hand at some SPS. PAR levels are 275 on forest fire and 180 on sand bed. Random pic I found on my phone...
Dry weight of the tank only: 475 lbs
Really sturdy stuff but a lot to screw
Only half way done
Doors will be aligned tomorrow when the tank sits on it
The curve in that pallet is giving me anxiety lol!
lol. The tank itself sits in a sturdy crate. Going to be quite a procedure to open it for sure.

Waiting for the movers to get it from the garage into the basement....
Scary 20 minutes are over...
All in the basement AKA fish cave now
Some more progress today...
Always hated to have all my electrical equipment like LED controllers, APEX and all the power cords in one small cabinet. No matter how much you try it always ends up in a mess.
Tried this out by putting a cabinet on the overflow side just for electrical stuff and actually looks pretty good to me. The cabinet aligns perfectly with the top of the tank and looks close to one unit.
Still have to drill holes in it for all the wiring but you get an idea...
Going with or without doors?
Looks good! Who did you use for movers?
Looks good - a bigger version of your old tank? : )
College Muscle Movers.
Started to unpack some equipment and got it into place:
Bubble King 200
Sicce Syncra SDC 9.0 WiFi return pump
Tunze Osmolator ATO
BRS heaters 1x300 and 1x600 Watt
Drilled holes in the electrical cabinet for all the wires and power cords. Still need to get some grommets for the holes.
Started slowly to install some controllers. In the end almost no wires/cables should be visible.
