Hey everyone I'm back with a new setup, but instead of it being mine it's for a client who makes the ultimate product for the hobby.

Ecopoxy is a business who makes not just an epoxy that's reef and freshwater safe but that can be used for MANY!!! Applications. Pics to come of his handiwork.

This tank will be managed, maintained and stocked by me. I had yew wing at fish gallery built the tank to the specs I gave him. Here is the current list of equipment I've gone with. Nothing has been skimped on either.

Tank by fish gallery
Rock from Fiji reef rock (pukani, Tonga and Tonga shelf rock)
Caribsea Aragonite sand (x3 full bags used)
x2 ecotech mp40's
x2 ecotech radion xr30 pro leds
Neptune apex (Lab edition) controller
Hydor smart ato
Ecotech vectra m1 return pump
X2 200watt cobalt heaters

It would be better if it were a 180 gallon tank here on the 180+ gallon display tank forum.

Was at my clients place last night. Cycle was ready for some fish so we added:

2x ocellaris clown fish
Flame angel fish
Yellow tang fish
Lawnmower blenny fish
5 orange stripe chromis
Porcelain crab
Red emerald crab
40 hermit crabs
2 strawberry conch


My client had called the colony in and we had around 20-30kids running around the tank. Was a great and exciting experience

Question...

The picture of the sump filled (nice work by the way). What is that copper pipe being used for?

That elegance will be happier (in the long run) on the sand bed and in less light and out of the high flow (if it's in flow I can't tell.)

So it's been a very long time since I've updated my thread here. Since this last post I have lost half the Sps, a bunch of fish and switched equipment.

Now running a jebao dc12000 and a bubble Magnus curve 9 skimmer.

Things have stabilized and are more accurate now.
