    I suppose as one of the mods on this site I should at least have a tank setup thread. So here it is:


    Measurements:
    Display:
    60*55*60cm, 10mm glass with black silicone and no bracing.
    The overflow is just a pipe fitting elbow with the side cut off.

    Water:
    All synthetic, RO and mixture of Seachem reef salt and Aquamedic reef salt

    Equipment:
    OceanRunner 3500 pump (have a hailea lying around as a backup)
    Reef Octopus DNW 110 (recirc, but it's in my sump, fed from overflow)
    A little heater somewhere, hardly needed but its seriously cold in CT at the moment.
    Noname 150W MH pendant (14kK BLV bulb) with 2 T8's (Zoo-med Coral-Sun actinic)
    Aquamedic Titan chiller

    Fish:
    African Clown Wrasse (about 4-5cm)
    2 Common clowns
    1 bristletooth tang

    Corals:
    Meat/Button/Doughnut (Cynarina)
    2 species of Xenia
    Brown star polyps
    Yellow bali polyps
    A few species of zoanthids
    Mushrooms (Discosoma)
    Big green open Brain
    Several blastomussa/acanthastrea
    Fox coral
    Orange ricordia
    3 acropora
    1 montipora

    Other:
    Double Sea Star (Iconaster longimanus)
    Pistol shrimp somewhere
    I think around 13 hermit crabs
    3 snails
    1 cleaner shrimp
    1 fire shrimp (were 2 but one went through the OR3500)


    Filtration:
    Overflow splits into first compartment (some purigen and carbon in there) and skimmer
    Second compartment has the skimmer in
    Third is DSB with aragalive
    Fourth has some live rock
    Fifth is heater and return pump and auto topup switch

    Tank after I got it:

    Since then the sump has been replaced with a better design and the skimmer changed.

    A recentish full tank shot.

    Definitely one of my "tank defining" corals.

    Still zero colour on my SPS but it seems my DSB has kicked in and almost all the algae has buggered off overnight...

    No. The one thing I have seen it called is "sun sun". It has some other name as well I can't remember.

    Oh here's a pic of my tank BC (before coralline). The water level is currently lower than it was there. That overflow was a bit noisy then (tank in bedroom) and I couldn't adjust the return pump etc. I could raise the water level now but I'm keeping it lower rather so the SPS can get vaguely more light as there's less water for the light to travel through.

    Also the black backing in that pic doesn't stick up like that btw, just happened to be like that in the photo. And yes the doors close as well...

    Awesome Rory!!

    I love the fact that the ballasts are built into the unit. It is, isn't it?

    What star fish is that?
