Well the rumors are true. I am moving forward with upgrading my current system to a significantly larger tank (see pic below). Am working out the details of the setup but hope to have the tank plumbed and running by year end. The tank itself is roughly 180g 5' long x 2' deep by 27" high with external overflows, starfire front and sides and predrilled for a closed loop. Some of you may have seen the tank itself in Max's shop at BAYMAC and I am having him build the stand and canopy. Tony has been helping me design the hood from ideas in my head. Still tweaking the design a bit. Here are some of my initial thoughts for various items Lighting: 2 250W MH's with Luminarc mini reflectors 3 39W T-5's (mostly for color supplementation) minimum of 2 4" Icecap fans (one on each side of the tank for push pull effect) Flow: Since the tank is predrilled for closed loop I am thinking of going with a Sequence Barracuda for the return pump with a Oceans Motion 4 way. I may also do a couple of wavy seas to increase the water motion. The tank will be plumbed from my garage using my existing setup (65G sump and a 20 gallon fuge). Again as this is still in the ultimate design stages, any comments or lessons learned would be greatly appreciated. I would very much like to do this right the first time vs. having to go back and make things work later on.
