    Have to admit, I'm not much of a writer so I'm going to keep this thread very picture heavy, although happy to answer questions. Started with a 180g, switched to a TruVu 210g when I did my kitchen remodel and was able to place the tank where I always wanted it. Been through lots of up's and down's over the years, but got to say, the tank has never been happier than it is now (credit to CoralReefer).

    Equipment list:
    30g sump
    3x AI Hydra's + 2x 48" T5's (ran 48" ACAN light from '10-'16)
    2x Eheim 1260 Return pumps
    UV Sterilizer
    E-shoppes Skimmer
    2x Maxspect 250 Gyre's
    Bubble Magus Dosing Pump (Alk, CA, MG)
    GFO Reactor
    Carbon Media Bag

    Too many corals to list, I'll let pictures do the talking there. It is a mixed reef tank with mostly LPS (especially chalices). I do have a watermelon chalice that has made it through the whole 10 year journey that I got from Lucky Goldfish in Oakland, and is currently about 9"x 9" and has a very large bubble coming out of it (will be featured heavily in thread).

    Future additions in progress:
    240 Gallon SPS only display tank
    112 Gallon Clownfish Harem/Anenome display tank
    Sump tank work room with:
    100 + 90 gallon sump tanks
    70 Gallon Frag tank
    38 Gallon Refugium tank
    25 Gallon AIO Quarantine tank

    Picture timeline coming...

    Rest of 2010, that the farthest back pictures that I could find. Know from receipts that tank started in 2008.

    Looking good, and looking forward to the future projects. What’s up with the watermelon bounce chalice - how long has it been doing that?

    Current tank video
    It started about a year or so ago when I added T5's. I think it was at about 75-100 par previously and that bumped it up to around 135. The bubble now has been growing a bit everyday and looks like there are a few other bubbles just starting to come up.
