FiltrationCustom Built with Bioball chamber, refugium, crushed coral and agronite chamber with hang on Protein Skimmer. The largest tank actually sets on the top of my cabinet and it just holds and circulates water at 65g. I empty and refill it from time to time to do water changes. Additionally there is a 15g Frag tank on the side of the main tank that is also tied into the whole system.
Lighting5' Current Outer Orbit sytem with 4 T5 actinics and 2 250W Metal Halides with added Ecoxotic Stunner LED strips.
Temperature76 at Night and 78.5 Day
DecorAcrylic shelves built inside the tank holding the live rock up higher from the bottom and making it appear like a cliff of rock with cave like area underneath for the fish to swim and sleep. This also makes it look like a lot more rock is present in the 30" deep tank but gives room for more fish.
AccessoriesPowerheads, Reeflo main pump, Aqua-Medic Needle Wheel pump for Protein Skimmer, Aqua-Medic Pump circulating water to the 65g volume and water change tank on the top of the cabinet.
FoodOcean Nutrition Prime Reef Flakes and also the Brine Shrimp Flakes fed on a daily basis; 2 times per week the fish get frozen brine mixed with blood worms; the Tangs occasionally get an Algae Sheet to graze one from Jullian Sprung.
