Tank Description: I combined 2 small reefs into this larger tank about a year ago. It is a 125 gallon reef tank with 58 gallon refugium with Chaetomorpha and a 6 inch sand bed that is lit opposite of the main tank, Aqua C ev-150 skimmer, home made Metal Halide lighting. Circulation is from a Sequence Dart pump on a closed loop. All corals are grown from Frags. None have ever been in the ocean. I have no mechanical filtration, only do weekly cleaning of the skimmer and 16 gallon water changes. The only additive is Kalkwasser with topoff water. All topoff water is processed by R.O. The transition from the 2 smaller tanks went very smoothly with not a single piece of livestock lost. So far it has been very successful and I hope it will remain so. Ther are no fancy chillers, controllers or other automatic stuff on it except for the timers on the lights.

About Yourself: I have been keeping freshwater fish for 24 years, saltwater fish for about 20, and reefs for about 15 years. I still take a minimalists approach and subsribe to the theory of keeping it as simple as possible.
