Schnitzel's Sticks

Figured I would start a new thread with pictures of my tank. Don't get much love on the Large tank section or the Southern California section. So I will try to keep this thread updated, assuming you guys like Sps.

My tank is 250g 96"x30"x21". Starfire, external overflow. Running 2-8x54w ATI fixtures with 2-Reefbrite XHOs.
Sump: Bubble King double cone 250. Refugium.
Geo 6x24 calcium reactor.

Took these with my cannon T3i and Avast camera tube.

Schnitzel's Sticks

Here's a few shots of the tank, and filtration. Pictures are kind of random. They are old pics I found going through my photobucket.











I initially ran a DIY LED/T5 light setup, but then switched to Radion/T5, and now I finally switched to all T5s with Reefbrites.

I dose all kinds of magic potions. Honestly not sure if they do anything, but I still dose them.
Pohls Xtra special
ME Amino acids
Aquaforest A, B, V, E
Aminos Pro Skimmer
I also dose potassium nitrate to raise my nitrate level. For phosphates, I don't do anything. Just regular water changes I guess.
