Hey all I am robert from Jacksonville FL. I am a member of another site and got an email invite so I am checking it out and seeing what you all are all about. Well I have been in reefkeeping for about a little over a year now. I have a 55 with 2 wet drys that I gutted hooked together and turned into a sump/fuge. However I am getting ready to tear this tank down to set up my reef ready 180 and use the 55 as my sump. I will post pics of my tank soon.

I have made many sumps I do have a few ideas the best way to go though is keep it simple. I find the more complex something is the less likely it will work correctly. I also have a mixed reef sps to Zoa I have 2 X 250 mh on my 55 that will be going over to the 180. Also for anybody in the north east florida area. I will be holding a frag swap about the end of next month. Free food and a good time for all who come.

I am on the west side of Jacksonville FL. Basically I-295 and I-10. As for a stocklist I have a bubble coral, a sun coral, a tourch coral, a maze brain (that used to be the size of a soft ball but lost about 70% trying to find a spot he was happy) now he is doing good. Got a bunch of zoa's and a few different acro's a lobo that a got as a brown out but is coloring up pretty good. A green trumpet a colored tube nem, a 5 headed duncun, and a aussie stollimia (not sure how you spell it) and a mathrix clam. I am sure I am missing something. As for fish I have a false perc clown 1 went carpet diving, a diamond goby, a mandren, a red scooter blenny, a orange fish (dont remember what he is), a blue devil fish aka damsil, and a korrian angel. think that about it. other than some blue leg hermits, sally light foot crab, emraild crab, and a pom pom crab I see from time to time. Oh yes las tbut not least some snails and a flame scallop, and a few limpet and feather dusters that came on my rocks.
