I was thinking about sending sango-chu a pm because I am interested in seeing his tank. So instead I decided to just make a post to see everyone's tank. Also some specs on each tank could be awesome to have.

1. Tank/sump sizes:

2. Lighting (type, number, watts, bulbs):

3. Flow (what kind of powerheads or closed loop):

4. Chiller:

5. Protein skimmer:

6. Supplements:

7. Calcium reactor:

8. Kalk Reactor:

9. Refugium (size, substrate, type of algae, light):

9. Controllers:

10. Frag tanks:

11. Ozone:

12. Carbon (how used and carbon brand):

13. Phosphate reactor ( reactor/media type):

14. Water change schedule (how often, what water (type of salt mix or where from)):

15. Temperature range:

16. Misc. others (any other equipment you use or something you think is valuable to the post like zeovit):

Obviously the stuff which is in your signature you can leave off, but some people like me don't update the signature often.

PICTURES COMING SOON :-)

Well i don't have any recent pics don't have a camera to be able to get any photos that would do my tank justice. I can try later but it is better to see in person.

1. Tank/sump sizes: ~150 display BB , 40 gal BB sump

2. Lighting (type, number, watts, bulbs):2x250w DE Halides, 20k, on icecap ballasts, 6x39 watt t-5's. I am working on my build of my new light system that will be suspended from the ceiling. It will have 2x250w 20k Radiums, and 6x54w t-5's.

3. Flow:2xwp-40's gen 1's w/ the new wetsides, 3x modded mj's 2100, 2 koralia 4's, and a mag 18 throttled back thru chiller.

4. Chiller: JBJ 1/3 H/P chiller

5. Protein skimmer:deltec mce600 and euroreef es 5-3

6. Supplements:Full Zeovit, Brightwell ReefCode A & B.

7. Calcium reactor: NONE

8. Kalk Reactor: Nope

9. Refugium (size, substrate, type of algae, light): That a definite NOOOO!

9. Controllers:None.

10. Frag tanks: None

11. Ozone:None

12. Carbon:Zeovit.

13. Phosphate reactor : Can't with my system.

14. Water change schedule (how often, what water (type of salt mix or where from)):Weekly 20 gal at 82 degrees @ 1.025

15. Temperature range: 79.5-82

16. Misc. others (any other equipment you use or something you think is valuable to the post like zeovit)I run most of the zeovit system, I have a 1.5 Liter zeovit reactor in my sump for the rocks, and dose most of the supplements. I haven't had results as good as the full zeo system. I keep my doses low and dose multiple times to keep my tank from having huge fluxes. Also I use filter socks which i change out every 2 days to get that extra lil gunk out of the water to help keep it clear. Then also I stand by Zeozyme, that junk works so freakin well!!! Lionel can you bring your camera over!!!!!!

1. Tank/sump sizes: 42 gl glass with 25 gl sump

2. Lighting (type, number, watts, bulbs): 2 each 14000K 250 watt halides

3. Flow (what kind of powerheads or closed loop): 3 korilia nano powerheads

4. Chiller: none since its in an air conditioned building though I do have a 300 watt heater to keep the temp stable.

5. Protein skimmer: Euroreef RS-80

6. Supplements: Coralvite and lots of it (I overdose 3 times the recomended amount) Sometimes I dose B-ionic but not often.

7. Calcium reactor: none

8. Kalk Reactor: none

9. Refugium (size, substrate, type of algae, light): have one but never bothered to put anything in it

9. Controllers: only a light timer to turn the lights on and off

10. Frag tanks: none

11. Ozone: none

12. Carbon (how used and carbon brand): none

13. Phosphate reactor ( reactor/media type): none

14. Water change schedule (how often, what water (type of salt mix or where from)): I use ocean water collected in yomitan. If my tank is lucky it will get a 10 gl water change every 2 or 3 months but I have gone 4 months before I actually felt compelled to do it.

15. Temperature range: 80.5-81

This pic is from september 08 when I first started dosing coralvite and taking pictures.

This shot is from this April

As you can see my system is a really basic system since I really wanted to see if I could do it without all the spendy toys and gadgets that we all love so much. So far I would say I am pretty sucessful since this thing has been up and running a year in May and I have fragged the larger ones a couple times for a friends tank.
