sump - 40 breeder containing a Reef Octopus Pro skimmer.
return pump - Ocean Runner 6500

circulation - Tunze Wavebox, 2 x Maxi-Jet 1200 with mods, and a Koralia 4.
rock - 120 pounds of dry base rock, 50 pounds of Tonga live rock.

Added a few fish and some corals:

Thanks.
I have had the brain for 9 years now.
This tank is by far my favorite dimensions ever. (Well, except I also have a 72"x72"x24" tank at my store.) That one is even more fun.

Simply stunning! What a beautiful picture!

By the way, it might be a good idea if you would upload the pics to your gallery here so in the future they will be easy to find associated with your account. No biggie, just a suggestion. Regardless, keep posting pics, these are great to look at. Would be great to see a FTS of this month since the last one is from a month ago. You have an awesome reef!

I keep all my pictures on one site so they are easy to keep up with. Posting them in every gallery of every forum site I go to would be a lot of work.

I do my maintenance every Monday. I will post some pics after this Monday's cleaning.
