40g Mixed Reef
I just got back into SW again after a year and a half off. I was running a 40g FW system during my "layoff", but I got the itch for SW again, so here I am. My plan is to keep this tank as simple as possible...low light corals and lightly stocked. Just something for me and my daughter to enjoy.
Equipment: 40g standard, dual 39watt T5 fixture (ATI aquablue special, ATI blue plus), MP10, Aquaclear 70 with InTank media rack (floss, purigen, carbon, chaeto), JBJ Nanoglo for fuge light, 47 lbs. of sand, 27 lbs. of "reef saver" rock from Bulk Reef Supply, 9 lbs of store bought LR.

I am using all external pumps, so I am hoping to avoid the use of a chiller. Down the road, I am going to get a HOB Reef Octopus skimmer (which also uses an external pump).
Thanks for looking in!

I just love the Flame Angels in a salt water aquariums! Your tank looks great
Tank looks really healthy! Your color mixture looks great really makes all the colors pop
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

Thanks! This is my first angel, so I am hoping it works out well.
