Description: This tank has been basically used for growing and fragging coral. Notice rocks along the back, coral on the sand. I use the rocks as my filter and a place for the animals to live. My substrate is my growing area. 75 Gallon All Glass oak tank with All Glass 55 gallon sump/refugium. 2 - 7.5 gallon tanks inside the sump for 2 additional refugiums. 2 single bulk head back hung overflows. 2 clear acrylic wet/dry filters. 1Coralife luft air pump. 1 indoor/outdoor light timer. 1 Maxi jet 1000 powerhead just to move water. 1 Coralife digital thermometer. 2 Rio Hyperflow sump pumps. 2 - 46.5 URI Actinic whites VHO's, 2 - 48 URI Actinic VHO's. Ice cap A4 ballast. Rio 1100 skimmer pump on Rio skimmer for 440 gallons. The lights heat the tank to a perfect 78.9 degrees F. 200 Watt Acura 1000 heater for at night in the sump.
Advice: Take your time, don't rush things. Observe your tank daily, know your animals to the point that when water changes occur, you can tell by their behavior.

Quote: I don't have ick, so I don't know what to tell ya
About Yourself: Well, instead of about me, about the tank...I use B-Ionic 2 part calcium buffer system, I feed Spectrum M to my fish along with Emerald entree, Phytoplankton, a little flake here and there and occasionally (blendered) fresh shrimp from the grocery store. I occasionally use iron and regularly do water changes. All I really have to do at this point is change the wet/dry's filter media and the pre filters in the overflows - the tank takes care of itself and everybody gets along. Except for the engineer and blue dot goby - the engineer is in the sump now.
