Fishfreaks 220 reef
« on: November 10, 2018, 18:59:57 »
Hey guys. Figured I would start a profile on the new tank I've been working on. Its currently been setup for almost a year so things are becoming much more stable. The goal of this tank is to be mostly an sps and gorgonian tank.
Here are the specs on the tank.
-220 duel overflows
-75 gallon sump, Reef Octo Elite 200INT Cone skimmer, Vario-8 return pump
-Growing chaeto for nutrient reduction (Lighting over the chaeto is a Kessil H380 and a cheap LED panel from Amazon)
-Flow within the tank is 2 Vortech MP40's and 2 Maxspect XF250 (Planning to add 2-3 more powerheads soon)
-Lighting on the tank consist of 3 Radion XR30 G4 Pro and 8 T5's (4x Coral Plus, 4x Blue Plus)
The tank started with sand however I could not have the flow I was looking for so it has since been removed.
The tank gets weekly 40 gallon water changes with Tropic Marin Pro Reef salt (Hoping to automate this soon with my Apex)

Are your fish getting sun burnt with your lighting?  Looks great

Got the 4 new power heads in place. Everything is looking good. That puts me at 170% turnover with just the pumps within the tank not including the return.

After almost 10 years of use out of my 4 stage RO unit I decided it was time for an upgrade. Ran an RO line all the way to the other side of the house for easy filling of the trash can by the aquarium.
