I thought I would post a few pics of my tank before I cut it back and move it to make way for a new tank. This tank is a 30x30x24tall w/ext. overflow. I have really let the tank go for the last year or so. A few of the corals are just taking over now. I have lost some nice corals due to shading or just being over grown by others. I will be much more strategic with coral placement in the new tank.

Red Dragon seems to avoid the Purple Plasma and is growing around it

Thanks

It really is a pretty basic set up I believe in keeping it simple. Lots of flow and light, feed the fish, no other supplements of any kind.

*Aquamaxx ConeS co-2 skimmer
*2xMP40 + 2x6095
*Geo Kalk reactor (for all top off)
*Liter Meter3 (2-part and kalk)
*Ehiem auto fish feeder
*TLF reactor 1 cup Carbon and a 1/4 cup GFO (changed monthy)
*acrylic sump (slow flow through sump approx 3X tank turn over/hour)
*3 bags of Siporax in sump.

Well my friend, I think you utilized about every square inch of that cube! Great job, looking forward to seeing the next tank :)

Thanks, It took about three years everything started as a small frag. The light is a 24" 8x24w Sunpower.

I think so. I have corals touching all four walls and now since I took the pics the Slimer is breaking the surface of the water. Thanks.

Thank you for the setup info! I love the basic setups! In fact mine is similar. Are you planning on doing a build thread on the new tank? I'd like to follow along with the new setup. You will really enjoy having some room for new frags!

No problem, I may do a build thread but I'm still just collecting equipment for it for now.
