OK here is mine. It is connected in line with the main system, the tank is an Eurobraced Tenecor 48x24x16 on a Tenecor Acrylic Stand. It is lighted by two 250MH AB SE 14K bulbs on IceCap electronic Ballasts and two 55W T-5 Actinics. Lighting is controlled by the Neptune and is on at night oposite to the main tank photoperiod.
Barebottom with the eggcrate in two levels for different light penetration supported with 1" dia PVC lenghts that have four cuts on top at 90 degrees (dremel) where the crate get's inserted.
Recirculation is provided by two Magdrives (12 and 18 in series) Overflow and returns in center back. Total flow around 1900 gph with additional powerheads inside the tank.
The cleaning crew (besides my elbow grease) is just a bunch of Astreas and Ceriths plus one Mex Turbo.
Trying to grow basically rare or uncommon sps corals, examp. ORA torts, pink and blue table, lokais, red digitatas, red capricornis, green/red sarmentosa, neon confusa, red millie, blue stagehorns, purple buttlebrush echinatas and such.

Sheot Jdiek! That looks great! What is your main system like? What type of skimmer do you have on there?

Two per tank would be better but they do a pretty could job with coverage as is. The tanks are 48x24x17 and the bulbs are 400w XM 20Ks.

Just Dave: Hehe awesome I was right on the lights(ok I didnt guess the brand lol, but thats what im getting to replace my 10K XM cause im getting rid of my PCs). If you had gone two per tank would you have reduced to 250 Watters instead?

\This was my old propagation system before I moved from the eastern seabord to the land of no basements. Man, not having a basement really cramps my reefing style!!!!


THis is an EASY set up and doesn't take too much time to set up. In the big picture it is relatively cheap.

3 rubbermaid containers, PVC, 3 bulkheads, cinderblock and a pump.

Unfortunaltey, I sold all of it to a guy before the move, b/c I would have had no place to put it I will be placing a propagation tank off of my exhisting system.

Because I wanted the intensity of the 400w bulbs. Two 250w units would give better coverage but with less intensity.

Not much room between the front and the system behind(hard to take a pic because I can't look through the view finder) but here is a pic. of some of the SPS. Most are made because they were broken in shipping or because of impending contact between some in display. I don't frag them as much as I do the softies.


Some of the softies.



Some sponge I've been playing with.
