Thread: 40g Mixed Reef

    Hello Everyone,

    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!

    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

    Coach, what all are you feeding that dwarf angel? Nice looking tank by the way, should develop nicely. I see you fragging soft corals in your future :)
