    Default Fraser Reef - 90G Mixed reef Reboot


    0 Not allowed!
    Hi guys,

    Here is time for my reef tank reboot.

    I'll not bore you with too much background, I'll post a link to a thread with that later ;)



    Anyway. My tank has had a complete reboot. New sand, new dead rock, new live rock in sump, new lights, new plumbing and a few other things. Basically only the Corals and fish will be coming from the old system (and the bare tank which has been bleached).


    So the Spec....


    Betta lifespace 90G (340lt) clearseal build.

    approx 90lbs of rock

    80lbs of crushed coral sand, mix of 3mm, 6mm and 9mm sizes.

    BM NAC 3.5 Skimmer

    Maxspect Razor 160w 16000k lights

    Sicce Voyager 8, 12,000lt powerheads with controller on alternative wave setting

    Algae scrubber

    Ehiem compact 5000+ return pump

    Seachem Purigen in return chamber



    Fish and corals (not all back in the tank yet, some are in the temp system in my garage until my Dr Tims arrives).

    Scopa's tang
    Firefish
    Filefish
    Damsel
    clown
    Sand sifting goby
    bi colour blenny
    6 line wrasse
    Long spined urchin
    cleaner shrimp
    peppermint shrimp
    hermit crabs
    turbo snails
    cerinth snails

    Branching monti's
    Plating montis
    Torch coral
    Frogspawn
    Riccordea mushrooms
    other mushrooms
    PSP & GSP
    medusa coral


    Other stock to come slowly but aiming on keeping the system on the lighter side for fish.

    Rock wise I have gone for a very open structure so I can keep the system as free as possible from debris, my sump contains about 35-40% of the rock density as a consequence.


    Here's a little taster pic for you all, this was before it got wet again!

    I'm looking forward to reading up on your journel and watching this set-up come together and develop

    Will you be putting a algae scrubber on this tank as well ?
    If you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.

    Ollie is a lucky boy to have that in his room!

    What's the purpose of the rack for the frags? Are those hard corals?

    the corals have suffered tissue damage and also algae has grown in parts of them. the idea is to keep them on the rack until they return to health and are well enough to move into the rockwork.there are a couple of lps but mainly sps there.
