I had a 125 that was a softy tank until Sandy took care of that a few years ago. I kept it as a Fowler until I took it down today. I also have a 36 bow which is a mixed reef. My goal is to take both so I can focus on just one tank.

I bought a 93 cube which will be installed tomorrow with the help of David from Reef Trends who has been insanely helpful with everything.

I've been gather equipment over the past year for the tank so I'm exciting to get up running but after tearing down a tank and seeing how much of a pain in the butt it is makes me almost not want to do it. That's of course the thinking after hours of draining and taking out the rocks and sand.

Equipment
Lights - hydra 52 and 26 with two 2 bulb reef brite T5s for supplement
Sump - 39 emerald trigger sump
Skimmer - skimz monster 251
Reactors - reef octopus recirculating 120r / TLF 150 gfo reactor as well
Chiller - coralife 1/4th
Return pumps - jebao dcp 10000 and jebao dcs 4000 for the chiller
Heaters - I have a few 300w lying around prob use 2
Top - made by artfully acrylic
Sand - 120# live caribsea black Hawaiian
Rock - brs macro that's been in my old sump for a few week. Prob about 100# and I have more if needed
Apex - older version with temp, ph and salinity probe. Also awm to control the lights also Ald module
Doser - kamoer
Powerheads - 2 mp40qd and gyre 150

I also plan on adding a turf scrubber in the future

There will also be a 15x15 cube frag tank plumbed as well. Hydra 26 for lighting and mp10 for a powerhead
Pics will be posted once everything is up and running

Advice and comments are welcomed

Well my purple tang wasnt happy with the new yellow tang. Had to put him back in the acclimation box. Andrew at Advanced had some great stuff this weekend. Everything is slowly coming together and looking good. This increased bio load will definitely help a lot!
