Today my goal is to get the light brackets mounted. I want to do this before the tanks are in. Should be pretty straight forward for the ATI on the rear tank

The 96" I am using 2x 36" Reefbrite Halide set ups. That will give me (4) 250w halides and (4) 36" XHO's Should be good coverage. The Lights will be mounted to a 72" Piece of 8020 and then I have a Light lift that will Screw in the beam. Only 1 of the 36" set ups will be mounted to start as one is being used in the 80 until I can transfer everything in that tank over.

I also decided I am going with a new 125 gallon tank to replace the 80 Deep blue. It gives me the 6' swimming room I want and will be more manageable in the space I have for it. Not to mention I will be getting a new one so I can drill it to work for my space.

Got the lights hung. ATI is all set. For the halides I ordered a longer piece of 8020 so I can fit both fixtures with better spread.

I have to tell you, mounting lights before a tank is in was awesome. Usually I'm working over a tank. Really let me center everything perfectly.


Next week is a big week.

90% of my plumbing parts will deliver today.

All my new Apex modules Monday.

Tanks and sump on Tuesday.

Return pumps and various other plumbing stuff next Wednesday.
