    Well I took a year so break from the hobby and have decided its time to jump back in. I am starting from scratch as I sold and gave away everything reef related. I decided I really wanted to do it right this time. And have been trying to take my time and think about what I want. I plan to do more of a mixed reef, I had primarly done sps in the past. I also dont plan to run zeo at this time. This is what I have so far.

    Tank:Miracles rimless starphire 36x36x22
    Stand: Custom built by me
    Lights:Sfiligoi xr4 with a 400w lamp 4 24" t5s
    Skimmer: ATB medium external?
    Flow:Wavyseas and a few tunze nanostream 6055s

    I will try to post updates as they occur.

    Nice, when are you getting the tank? I may be thinking about an upgrade, deciding on where I should have a tank made.

    Good to see you back Paul, if "doing it right" is anything like what you had before you left, then you should be part of the BAR Tank of the Month in no time :D

    Thanks everyone for the warm welcome. I talked with the tank builder today and everything is cut and they are picking up the bottom from being tempered tomorrow. So it should be ready soon.

    The horrida was always a favorite of mine(hint) Its a tough coral and I dont know if there is much around. I gave frags to alot of people but I think most were lost.

    The tank is finished and will ship out tuesday ;D I have to say i am getting a bit excited. I picked a pair of mis bar clowns from Robin that are just waiting for the new tank. I recived my light but its a damaged so I have to buy something else. I think I am going to go with a giesmeann spectra this time.

    Hi Paul! I'm new, but welcome back! :) are you going to make it to the frag swap this weekend?

    I cant make it to the swap. But luckily for me I distributed a lot of my corals when I had them so I can restock easily. Next year I will have something to distribute.
