Description: 180 gallon, 6' by 2' by 2', soft corals and fish, 300 lbs of rock, 200 pounds of crushed shell substrate. 60 gallon sump holds about 40 gallons, 300 gallon rated skimmer, bio filtration and carbon. Very simple. I have only been in the hobby a year and a half.
Advice: bring your check book. Don't cut corners on the environment aspect and go slow. I burnt myself by going big too fast. Cost my 3x more than needed.
