    Default Chris' 180+ Reef tank


    0 Not allowed!
    Right guys, as with the last time I started a new journal I'm going to start with the best of intentions to keep doing this.

    I've confirmed I will be collecting my new tank on the 2nd of April when I get home from the training course I am on.

    Here is the picture I currently have.



    Basically it is a 6 and a bit by 2 by 2 foot Ehiem tank which has been used for fresh water tropical.

    I will be selling the ehiem canisters, lights etc it comes with to recoup some of the cost and will be converting it for marine.

    I will be drilling it, doing duel sumps and using my own current lighting setups.

    More info to follow ;)

    Thanks, chris

    I don't know much about SW, but I love following journals, and 180 gallons is HUGE, this I'll be a fun journal to watch.

    You're gonna love the extra room. Now that I have my 210, I wouldn't got back to a smaller footprint. The room for aquascaping is awesome.

    If you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.

    I don't need a bigger tank, I don't need a bigger tank, I don't need a bigger tank hahaha

    That set up looks real clean man can't wait till you actually get your hands on it and get moving haha I can't imagine your excitement hahaha 180 is huge and I'm definitely thinking that you'll love the space, 2 feet wide is a ton of room to scape.... keep us posted with plans/news!!
    55g Long --> After 18mo of doing well the tank crashed during moving. Most likely cause: Flatworm Die-off... won't start another until after moving... Likely not until late 2013

    20g Long --> currently concoting a build plan

    Check out the journal to follow my 20g SW tank

    congrats on the new tank!

    if you need any pointers drilling it, talk to Cliff. that's one thing you don't want to mess up.
