Description: My reef tank is a 180 gallon corner pentagon which has 48" sides and just under 60" across the full face. Lighting is provided by 2 x 400 watt 14K metal halides run on a pfo ballast and 4 x 95 watt VHO bulbs, 2 x actinic blue and 2 x actinic white bulbs running on icecap 600 ballasts. I have a central overflow running to a 35 gallon sump with a precision marine bullet 2 skimmer and a precision marine calcium reactor. The return is a Iwaki 55rlt pump through a 1" sea swirl. For added water movement, I run a closed loop driven by a Dolphin Ampmaster 3000, and a Vortech MP40 pump. All cooled by a Prime 1/3 hp chiller (summer primarily).
