More Info

State: California
Country: United States
Description: 58 Gallon RR by Oceanic, 29 gallon sump with refugium, Coralife SS65, TLF Phosban Reactor 150, Mag 5 return pump, 2x150 Metal Halide lighting by Current USA burning Phoenix 14k bulbs, and 2 Koralia 2's for water movement. Reefkeeper Lite controlling heaters, lights, and 1/5th hp chiller.
Advice: Drill your tank for a sump, it will make your life so much easier in all aspects, being forced to use HOB things only makes more work; get the biggest skimmer you can, I don't think you can overskim a reef tank; perform water changes twice as many times as you think necessary, water changes are the best thing you can do for the health of your system; use proper lighting and leave room for upgrades down the road, test your levels weekly for dkh, calcium, and mag, and dose accordingly for low levels.
Fish Kept: 1 True Percula clown, 1 Coral Beauty Angelfish, 1 Coral Goby, 1 Yasha Hase Goby with Pistol Shrimp.
Corals/Plants: SPS, Montis, T. Maxima, T. Crocea, T. Derasa, T. Squamosa, various LPS, etc.
Tank Size: 58 gallons
About Yourself: I started with a 29 tall which was a disaster size, moved to a 40 breeder which was great but not reef ready, and then acquired my current tank, a 58 gallon center overflow by Oceanic.
