Greg's Reef Tank

I am excited to say that I have done a small upgrade from a 57 rimless to a 75 gallon Marineland reef ready tank. I feel like the extra foot of space and additional water volume was much needed for my corals and other livestock.

I have built my own stand as I wanted something stable and without a center brace. Additionally I have kept all of my equipment from my previous build with the exception of the new gyre.

Pictures to follow...

New 75 before it is filled. The doors were not finished yet.

Tank when it was just filled and waiting for the sand to settle.

Broke down and setup new tank all in one night. Started at 8pm and finished at 4:30am. One hell of a night and most importantly no livestock losses!
