Oh well, here i go. After having such a large tank (340gal display 750Gal total system) and down grading to a 90 gallon has been difficult to adjust to. Not much you can do with a tank 18" deep. So i'm planning of upgrading to a
48" x 30" x 22". This tank should be around 138 gallons i guess. this should give me a lot more room to play with. My 90 gallon i have a friend who i think will pick it up from me.
I'm disappointed that i just bought a 6 bulb ati fixture and will have to upgrade to a 8 bulb ati fixture. Even though i love MH fixtures in a apt its just to hard control heat issues.
Thinking of left corner overfill, Front and two sides low iron.
Ati 48" Powermodule 8x 54Watt Bulbs
Aqueon Proflex Sump Model 4 X
Skimmer ATB 840 V2
Return Pump 1260 or 1262 pump.
Ehiem 200 watt Heater
2x Tunze 6205 pumps
Apex Controller
Tunze Osmolator

Hopefully my friend will come through with the tank build. I know he does amazing work. I'll keep you guys and girls posted.

Corals already have waiting to transfer to the tank.

Yes Ricky. Its time for an upgrade. I will be going back to my old days and going Sps hard. I've turned my 90 gallon tank into a frag tank practically. Its housing about 58 Sps frags.

I'm trying to make my system as automated as possible. First, I love my pro flex sump, but my ATB skimmer fits too snug which causes vibration and creates a hum that can be annoying. I want people to please post comments and pictures of a nice size sump with a refuge in it as well. Even if i have to make a custom sump. My cabinet should be 48x30x35

Second, I would like advise on a good doser for my two part. I'm tired of dosing esv two part everyday.

Third, Any neat gadget light for stand that can probably turn on when i open door.

Forth, How do you incorporate moon lights when you have no canopy and you have a hanging Ati t5 fixture on a rimless tank,

Please don't be scared to post pictures as well. I am opening this thread so you all have an input on helping me make this Sps tank the best it could be. Any additional ideas are welcome.
