    This is my 280 gallon SPS dominate reef. Tank is 72x30x30 with a 60gallon custom acrylic sump/refugium. Lighting is a Hamilton Tech Sebu Sun metal halide/T5 combo. Tanks just hitting its stride after being set up for about 3months now. Any question just ask away.

    I have 3 tangs but will be adding a couple more. Two Spot, Goldrim, and Maculiceps. Yet to be added is a Dusamieraa and Square Tailed. Rest of the fish are: Declevis and Copperband butterfly's, pr Wantanabe angels, exquisite/blue fairy/pink margin/orange back/six line/eight line/pr blue star leopard wrasses (looking to add a pr of rhomboid and mystery), chalk bass, and several blennies.

    Skimmer is a Aqua Excel AE-EC5. DC skimmer

    Tank was built by a local builder around 10years ago, they are no longer in business. I bought the tank used.

    Flow is a Jeboa DC1500 return pump, 3 Jeboa RW-15s, and a Maxspect Gyre-150.

    This is kinda a temp tank. Will be replaced in the coming year with a custom build glass 360 (109x32x24).
