    This is my 40 gallon breeder tank. I've had it set up for about a year now. I just started getting into SPS, mostly encrusting montiporas, but overall I think my tank is more of a softy/LPS tank. I guess I can track my tanks progress with a post like this. Anyways, here are some specs that everyone loves so much:
    Tank: Standard 40 Gallon Breeder
    Stand: Standard basic maple stand and canopy
    Light: 5x39W T5HO's on Accustart Ballasts from ReefGeek. Right now my bulb combo is front->back: ATI Blue plus, UVL superactinic, ATI Aquablue Special, ATI blue plus, and UVL aquasun. I have the superactinic and a blue plus on for 8 hours and the other three bulbs on for 6.
    Flow: I have a vortech Mp20 running on ReefCrest Mode and a tunze nanostream 6025 unmodded.
    Filtration: Octo BH100F HOB protein skimmer. I have my heater and a pump in the last chamber of the protein skimmer to that runs through a phosban reactor.

    Stock wise I have 4 fish. 2 bar gobies, 1 flasher wrasse, and a yasha goby. I am looking for more fish, but I haven't seen anything I really like so far. Probably gonna look for one or two more fish. Not really sure though. Any suggestions? I'd want something peaceful and won't pick on my corals, but will be out and about so that I can see it.

    So here are some pics:

    The tank itself:

    I am really bad with pictures, I have a basic Point and Shoot digital camera. But hopefully you guys get the general idea of what it looks like. I guess I could use some tips on taking pics with more accurate colors. I already use a tripod, but it's mainly the color representation that I have a problem with. Thanks for looking.

    Actual tank colors are a little bluer. But it's close enough for now ;D

    Sweet Tank Brandon.


    It looks like a piece of Art on display and very well planned out.
