    Hey Guys, Im Jamie. Im from Calgary Alberta. To be honest im researching different plumbing options for my new tank and you have some threads that look promising, but what the heck ill drop in here and let you know what im up to.

    I currently have a 60 Gallon soft coral reef, with a maroon clown, lawnmower blenny, snowflake eel and a female blue devil damsel.

    Im now building a 150 gallon one piece euro-braced 4 feet long 3 feet deep and 20 inches high, with a 45 gallon sump. its going to be a LPS dominant tank with SPS up top and a frag rack in the sump. The stand is going to be 28" tall, giving the whole tank a combined height of 57" just shy of 5 feet.

    Thanks Everyone
    Jamie

    Welcome to MASA

    I am sure you will enjoy your stay with us. Why not start a thread showing off your tank. Remember to include as many pictures as posible.

    Welcome, very nice, I see cable ties are a universal winner when it comes to keeping corals in place.

    @ seabass

    The 8th pic is of black sun polyps, or black sun coral, they are both the same thing. They are just the black verson of the sun polyps except slighty harder to keep. They are SPS i believe and when extended out they at a forest green color

    As for the cable ties, I used them to aquascape and it was convient for the corals to hold on to, so yeah!! Cable ties FTW

    Welcome to MASA! Interesting to see that Canada gets the same types of coral as we do.

    Octopus is really cute. Any idea what species it is?

    @ 459b

    yes we do get pretty much the same stuff, if you want the really exotic stuff you have to get it from the states who get it right from indo, or fiji or other places, unfortunalty moving "lifestock" over the canada border is very pricey and a very long process so we get most of out stuff aquacultured in Ontario.

    As for my octo it is a dwarf about 1 month old, so i still got around a year with him knock on wood
