Country: United States
Description: 90 gal drilled all glass tank with red oak canopy and stand. Reefkeeper 1 to control lighting cycle and temp. I maintain 78.5 to 80.5 degrees year round. (2) 250wt 15K MH with (2) 110 wt VHOs. (2) Hydor Kor 1s and a MJfor in-tank criculation. A clear plastic bin with 10 gallons of water for a sump. DIY top off Mag 7 for return. Berlin classic skimmer. 200 micron filter sock cleaned every 3 days. I run Black diamond carbon changed monthly. Kent EE, reef calc, iodide, stront & molyd. added weekly rotated with an 8 gallon water change monthly as well. About 110 lbs of live rock and a 2" sandbed.
Advice: Youll have to spend money in this hobby. I highly recommend a Reefkeeper or Aquacontroller this was my BEST INVESTMENT to manage my temp and lighting. Many DIYs on the internet. For ex. I made a top off system for less than $20 and it works great. Rock, corals, and lighting are the most expensive, buy a good oversized skimmer, and use ONLY RO/DI water
Fish Kept: 1 yellow tang, 1 zebra tang, 9 chromis, 1 royal gramma, 1 percula clown, 1 lawnmower blenny, 2 skunk cleaner shrimp, blue and red hermits, cerith and ast snails, 1 red star fish, and 1 feather duster.
Corals/Plants: Leathers, rics, zoos, star poyps, mushrooms, LPS, and SPS corals. I like to have a well rounded healthy coral and fish aquarium full of colors and various life forms.
Tank Size: 90 gallons
