In the process of gathering equipment at the moment.
The tanks will be here in about 10 days.
90g DT 48"x18"24"
55g Sump 48"13"18"

I may add my 29 on to the system as a grow out or secondary DT but haven't decided for sure yet

Equipment will be:
Octopus Extreme 200 Skimmer
PM12 Mag Drive Return Pump
2 400w Ice Cap Ballasts and Pendents
Vortech Mp40w
1000gph double overflow

Im going to keep mostly SPS and LPS, I hope to get a calc reactor at a later time but until then...

Comments, ideas, suggestions?
I would love to have some input from people running like systems and/or equipment.

Re: phil_pl's new tank build

Congratulations..are you going to set up a "journal" post and keep us updated on the progress when you are setting it up or just let us picture it in our minds...

I am SO envious! LOL

No I am happy for you of course. Keep us updated on the progress, hope you find some strong help soon to get it unloaded.

Re: phil_pl's new tank build

This picture was taken about 20 mins after putting the sand in, the tank is now crystal clear.*w3

Yes i will get more picks up later, now that it is clear.

I am ready to move things over but sadly the tank isn't.*n1
Still need to get some more sand, 60lbs only gave me about a 1.5" SB and I am looking for for a 2-2.5.

Re: phil_pl's new tank build
