    Ive dumped the 75G and upgraded to a 120. This is a sumpless system. Again keeping it very simple just like the last one. Im using a remora skimmer and a rena canister filter. The tank is a mixed system with both lps and sps. Lighting is Maxspect LED's which I do like. Ive always been a MH guy but these lights do the job pretty well. A 20L is being used for a quarentine tank

    Nice!

    My opinion : Ignore the "big boy" tank comments.
    If coral is your priority, as opposed to fish, a 120G seems really ideal.
    Big enough for a good mix of corals, but a whole lot less hassle.

    Nice work getting it up to 5 ft. Now a 180 or 225 even is just "one more foot honey!" Almost there!
