    Iím in Southwest Houston. This is my 90 gallon RR with megaflow overflow. I have a 22ish gallon sump/fuge below deck that houses my Bubble Magus NAC7 cone skimmer, my titanium heater, and my Quiet1 1200 return pump. You wonít be able to see in these pics because they are from May of this year, but I also run GFO through a phosban reactor and carbon in a bag. I guess this would be a good time to say that I also donít have any full tank shots that I felt like looking up. I will update this post later this week with current pics with full tank shots and the rest of my livestock.

    I feed nori twice a day to my chevron tang, scopus tang, and the anthias. I also feed dainichi marine FX and dainichi marine FX baby sinking pellets once a day. I usually treat the tank with frozen mysis once a week.

    I have 4 T5 lamps driven by an icecap 660 that run from 1:30pm to 9:30pm

    Under the hood





    Tang, LTA, frogswawn


    Clown pair


    Some of the coral

    This thread motivated me to take some new pictures.

    48" x 24" x 16" with Starphire on the front & sides
    Rear center overflow, 1.5" Durso, 3/4" return
    36" x 16" x 16" sump, configured as skimmer/fuge/return
    2x Maxspect G2 110W LED fixtures
    2x MP40w ES on each end of the tank. I have a third so I may add it just for kicks.
    SWC Xtreme 160 Protein Skimmer
    Tunze Silence 1073.04 return pump
    7" wide x 15" tall x 24" long ATO res w/ float switch & pump setup

    Fish
    Powder Blue Tang
    Picasso Clown pair
    6-line wrasse
    African Flameback angel

    Coral
    Tyree's grape purple cap
    Green monticap
    Green Bali slimer stag
    Reefermadness green w/ purple polyps birdnest
    Tub mystic blue stag
    Steve Alias stag (aqua green w/ baby blue tips)
    Neon Green birdnest
    Pinkish orange digitata
    Upscale pink birdnest
    Tyree Green Toadstool
    (all this above is from fishcraze's tank - thanks Quoc!)
    Pink/Green open brain/wellso
    Purple/Green wellso
    Frogspawn
    Green candy canes, pink/blue candy canes
    Assorted random red/green mushrooms
    Assorted zoas

    Inverts
    RBTA
    Cleaner Shrimp
    Dwarf & Florida Cerith snails
    Blue legged hermits
    Nerite snails
    Nassarius snails

    The total system is about 100 gallons. I do a 12 gallon water change weekly. Skimmer cup is dumped about every 5 days. I fill the ATO once a week, but it could go longer. I am dosing a 1/2 TSP of Kalk per gallon of water in my ATO, and levels seem to be holding stable but I am still measuring & confirming. If Kalk isn't sufficient then I will add some dosing pumps & move to 2-part.

    I feed the tank once a day - my PBT gets some Nori on a clip, and I feed the tank a mix of frozen enriched brine shrimp, mysis shrimp, frozen #1/#2, and pellets/flake as the mood strikes me... they get about a frozen cube a day of something different, along with a pinch or three of flake or pellets.

    None of the coral is mounted yet. I am taking my time with that, no rush. I want to make sure it all stays alive a while before I go gluing it to stuff, this is my first foray into "real" SPS. I'll get around to it "soon".

    I bought some Warner EcoBAK pellets as well. My plan is to run those + carbon in a BRS dual reactor that I have laying around doing nothing right now. I haven't implemented it yet, though.

    I like the LED lights, but I am having a problem with the clock/timer on one of the drivers. I typically run the blue LEDs for an hour from 3-4 PM, then everything on from 4-10 PM, then I run the blue LEDs from 10-11 PM. I have the lights coming on late so I get more time to enjoy the tank when I'm actually home. I run a single 19W CFL 6500K floodlight over my refugium from 2 AM until 2 PM each day.

    Hey Llama, I think all that candycane is crowding your tank. It needs a tank with a little more elbow room...like mine.

    I've sold all but the top colony in the first pic of it. It grows like a weed so more will be up for sale soon.

    I agree, those are pretty cool. Mine don't have that much contrast around the "rim" of the heads if you know what I mean.



    (mind out of the gutter, people)
