    Hey All, thanks for the welcome! Just a short intro; been reef keeping since early 1990. Yup, you read that right, 1990! Started with a standard 6' long 125. Started with a used tank and of course it leaked after a year. Joined the wet floor club early on but finally got the swing of things by moving the tank out of the blazing sun and into our first apartment as a peninsula. Moved it in '93 to a new house, sold it all in '96. Fast forward to 2005 and there I was with another new house and a 65 tall. The reef bug had bored its way back into my head. :p Another time jump, 2007, and a new tank 120G 48x24x25 Reef Ready Oceanic. 5 years later and the 120 was bursting at the seams, time for an upgrade! Current tank 240G - 84X28x25. My dream tank! 3 sides starphire, BK Super Marin 250, 60G sump, moved by Tunze, controlled by Profilux, lit by Mitras. Mixed reef. I'll try and post some pics soon! :biggrin:

    That's excellent, do you have more than one tank? What lights are you using?
