Back at it: 90g build

Hi Everyone,

It been awhile since my last tank, but now itís time to start fresh. My new build is a leemar 90 gallons 3x2x2.

So far everything thing I bought is used from fellow reefer. I need to stay within budget but itís a hard task for this hobby. Here is my current list of equipments.


Leemar Tank
AA sump
AA ato
Custom stand- had some re work
Hamilton 2 250 halide and 4 t5 - thinking of switching to led due to electrical bill.
Eheim 1260
(items above was a package deal)

2 mp40wes
Neptune lite

80 rocks- was live but I bleached and dried it
Starking 1/4 board- Barr bottom approach.

Leftover equipment from prior build
Brs- roDi
2 Tunze pump 1073.020
Sicce 5.0 pump
Media reactor


Hopefully we can get some fish in soon. Here are some pictures....

Iíve been watching .

I really like the dimensions of your tank. I wanted something custom but it was too pricey and I found a good deal on a standard 90G. The 2í of depth you have will be really fun to aquascape (I like your mock aquascape btw)

What do you plan on keeping in your tank? Bare bottom for SPS dominant or just less hassle?


Hope to see more soon!


Mike

Hey Mike,

I finished up the plumbing and started they cycle. Kinda mess up on the return drain.... I put it too low so the ato doesnít fit inside the cabinet anymore.

Equipment update:
Radion xr30 pro g3 (2)
Tunze 3155
Aquamaxx xs reactor
Neptune dos

Fish: current in qt
2 chromis
2 clown
1 yellow tang

Hereís some pic:

Man what a bummer on the ATO res...

Would it have fit if you went back and shortened the pipe before the first elbow on your drain? I think I would have done that lol. No big deal, you have room in your stand now for some extra equipment.

Where do you plan on keeping the ATO res?

I probably could have shorten the pipe.... but I have to redo the whole down drain. Wasnít worth it and since the tank is in the corner I just put the ato outside.
