Relz - 150 Tank upgrade

Just placed an order for a larger tank. Currently I have two tanks actually, an 80 rimless deep blue mixed reef and a 34 Solana mostly softies and RBTA hosting a pair of Frostbites. I'm upgrading to a SCA 150 60x24x24. Couldn't beat the current pricing. I guess I will be parting with the other two once the transfer is done.


I currently run ATI sunpower on my 80 with a reefbrite supplement. I really like ATI's may look to find a 48" as I have a 36" 6 bulb now and love it.


This might take a minute but I definitely will be posting some pics once it's here and I get started on it. I also will be posting my current tanks and whatever equipment I don't reuse on the upgrade.

Yup. Felt crazy putting down that much for a skimmer but I plan to have many fish. So I didn't skimp the that department. I like running 7 inch sock so the tideline 36 was exactly what I was needing.
