Description: 180g Oceanic mixed reef tank, 900w Iwasaki halides supplemented by 260w 460nm Blue PC lighting, 45g sump, 20g refuge, and an addition 29g planted SW tank in the same water column as an additional refuge. Tank dimensions 72"x24"x24". Turnover from display to sump/fuges is around 1200 GPH, by various pumps. Adding two Seio 1500's to the display tank next week to add 300% more movement in the tank itself. 2" sandbed (~200lbs) with over 300 lbs of assorted live rock, everything from figi, tonga, to DIY agrocrete.
Advice: SW tanks.... the only things that happen fast are BAD things.

LPS - bubble coral, frogspawn, hammer, many others. SPS - monitipora digita, and Cap's. I'm sure I've missed a bunch but this will give an idea of what's in there. Plants - 20 gallon solid cube of Chaeto, in the planted tank mostly, turtle grass, halimeda, capularas, and feather/fronds.
Tank Size: 180 gallons
Quote: Every electronic component is manufactured with smoke stored deep inside, only a real genious can find a way to set it free.
