BTw I did consider a 400 watt Iwasaki 65k instead of 1000 watters...But since I already have 2 1000 watters it was a no brainer to me.I may try a 400 Saki over one and see how it spreads as well.

here is the 180 gallon tank.I have the light mover and will install it over the tank today but I have to order the 400 watt halide.I will order it tomorrow from Hellolights.I'll get the ARO retro kit and a XM 20k 400 bulb.

Also got to order a Sequence or Amp Master.I figure I'll Tee off the pump to the tank and one of the 300 vats from a 300.The 3rd 300 will be a stand alone system with a 50 gallon shallow Rubbermaid with a DSB for clams connected to it.I also already have a 175 watt set up for the 50 gallon clam vat as well.

I got a couple more buckets of salt last night and started thinking I should try to use them also, for surgers.

I think I'll have 6 buckets left when I am through.

I finally got a pic of my tank. In the middle are a bunch of zoo frags, on the right are my zoo/paly colonies and pieces that im waiting to grow into colonies. The left there is some thin-barred xenia, some sps(birdsnest and monti caps), and a small frag of GSP you probably cant see. All I have in there is a huge turbo snail, a coupe ceriths, and a couple blue-leg hermits. Lots of copepods to for the amount of rock....and they are BIG, lol.



Its lighted by 150W 20K Ushio with an Aromat Ballast. I have an aquaclear 200 and a powersweep 212 on it.

Thanks for looking.

Chris

How do people like the rubbermaid stock tanks for coral proping? Seems like alot of people have them.

Chris, I love my rubbermaid tank. It's only about 15 inches deep (I think) and it's really strong. I think I paid about 70 for it and it's a 50 gallon. The only down side to the setup was my skimmer would not go over the side. I fixed that by having a maxijet feed a 5 gallon home depot bucket. I'll post pics later tonight....

Ahh yeah. Good Idea.

Yeah they sound like a good price for their size. One thing I dont like is I like looking in from the side aswell as top and these tanks dont allow you to. Anyone else have a similar position?

Chris

Wow I never got that clear of a view into a stock tank. Looks good!

That bucket idea is good, thats actually what im doing except with a small plastic garbage can on my mom's 33g because the tank isnt set-up for a sump, lol.

Thanks!! I used a crap load of glue to make sure it didn't leak. Then I hung the maxijet that feeds it upside down to guarentee that in the event of a leak, the water would stop feeding to the bucket and the pump would die. You can't see that in the pics, the light is blocking the shot of the maxi jet...


I love this hobby!

That is a nice setup Vert20. I like that shape of tank you are using.

Thanx! The glass tank is a 72x36x12 (about 150 gallon) and the "sump" is a portable koi pond that holds about 300 gallons (if I remember right) and is full of softies and leathers...

The one in the far back corner is a 55 gallon suspended growout tank ala Anthony Calfo that just went up last week with three sides and the bottom painted white. We'll see how it does.

Beautiful setup Vert20! If you don't mind me asking, how much did the portable koi pond set you back? How sturdy is the build? That thing looks huge!!
