More Info

State: Illinois
Country: United States
Description: 150 gallon Oceanic with cherry cabinet and canopy. I run 3 - 580 gph+ pumps in my sump which contains live rock, mangroves and occasional carbon, in-line UV (sometimes), 2 waterfall style algae filters and an Aquaripure system. No skimmer and a heavy fish load. Lighting is 400 watt 20K actinics.
Advice: Try building an algae filter and stop doing water changes! (Lowers nitrates and phosphates.) Low wattage blue spectrum lighting and algae filter have really kept nuisance algae down in the tank and on the glass. I feed my parrotfish and tangs nori and they are much healthier than they had been on flake foods. I make my own chopped seafood blend mixed with Selcon for predators.
Fish Kept: Parrot fish, speckled grouper, clown trigger, 2 yellow tangs and 1 purple, maroon clown, 2 serpent starfish and whatever snails and hermits manage to survive from week to week.
Corals/Plants: Corals in my other tanks. Mostly dyed coral skeletons and live rock in this tank.
Tank Size: 150 gallons
About Yourself: Run a real estate appraisal business and two tanks sit in my office, 1 reef and 1 fowler.
