I think the type of Overflow he uses also helps it look clean. Box-less overflows immediately looked like the next thing that will come up in reefing to me (although that may be retro?).

I love the dimensions of this tank. I have a standard 120 gallon (48"x24"x24") and I wish my height was lower at around 18"-20". This is going to be sweet. Catch me up to speed, I'm a little behind on my information. Did something happen to your last tank or is it still set up and this is an upgrade? I'll be looking forward to updates.

Congrats Sahin! Can't wait to see what light you build for this one!

(PS - I know it says an ATI Hybrid is going over it but we both know you'll build some other hybrid for it!)

SPS Dominated Evolution Aqua

I have the deltec 1655 coming myself. Same skimmer with an AC pump instead of the jebao dc pump.

Looking forward to watching the progress. Like the light selection too!

Really nice Sahin!!!

Hope this thread has more updates than the previous one. Remember to take lots of pictures of the old before breaking up.

Are you keeping a fuge?
I would start with chaeto before the pellets ... with a good fuge and since you don't want that many fishes, probably you control it in a more natural way. Also a fuge will help feeding your reef.

Also instead of ATI would you consider Triton? I am using it and I am really happy with it.

All the best,
Rui

No background. I've seen some tank without a background and they looked nice.

Rui has convinced me not to go with Biopellets... So no Biopellets. Just Seachem Matrix and Prodibio Dosing for now. I've always started tank with Prodibio and never had SPS loses so I'm doing the same this time. At some point ie once a few fish have been added I will add a refugium.

Forgot to mention; I have installed two Oceanlife overflows. They look minimal and do take decent flow throughput. I'm running the Ecotech Vectra at 35%. I'm getting very decent flow through the sump.

This is an upgrade. Current tank is way too small. I have some colonies that need space. Plus I want to keep some larger fish than I have been keeping so far.

Hopefully it will be an ATI Hybrid.

Current FTS:



Tank has been scaped by my awesome friend Nav using 99% Real Reef Rocks (apart from the small piece of coral branch on the left hand side).

He used a few boulders and mainly branches. Its not obvious from the photo but the islands are slanted towards the left and there is plenty of space for those acros.

The sand is Reeflowers Pearl White Sand. This is the most white sand I've come across. Of course I made sure some of my buddies tested it out in their tanks first.

Tank had saltwater put in about a week ago. I chucked in a few vials of Prodibio bacteria and some other bacteria that was supplied by Evolution Aqua with the tank. After 5 days I put in an acro frag (my Blue tort). It browned out but is still alive. No STN or anything like that. I'll put in a few sensitive acro frags over the weekend as the Blue tort I consider very hardy.

Hello Sahin ... looks great !!!! Are you putting some of your own rock to seed? Are you putting marine pure blocks to compensate the small amount of rock?

Next week I will send water to triton and I will evaluate the aluminum levels as there as some suspicions that marine pure leaches aluminum. I will update the findings.

And is the scape pre-drilled for you bases as the other one?

Also ... please a pic from the "down under". I am curious about how you are implementing the anti-aefw contraption.

And don't wait too long to start the fuge. It needs time to develop and you will benefit from the extra life without fishes.

All the best ... I am pretty sure this is going to be even a bigger success.

BTW your tort, decadia, redplanet are absolutely amazing. I need to update my thread!

All the best,
Rui

Very nice start Sahin! I like the openness of the rockwork it will have some great space for coral growth! Can't wait to see this develop.

Sahin,
Beautiful tank! The aquascape is already a win in my book. Can't wait to see this tank to be filled with SPS.

Only one Regal Angelfish? I say go for a pair! Mine are the stars of the tank.
