    I started collecting equipments for my 375g tank in Nov of 2006. The 375g tank and cabinet + canopy arrived in Feb 17, 2006 that I ordered from WMS (I'm not really happy with their workmanship). A week after, RODI was added into the tank to get an early start in cycling the water while at the same time I was working on adding the rest of the equipments. Finally, livestocks were added in March 12, 2007.

    Here is the equipments list I have right now:
    > Tank size 96x30x30 375g tank
    > 110g Sump with buffers for skimmer and live rocks
    > 3x 400w 20k BLV MH on an icecap ballast and luminarc reflector w/ glass shield
    > 1x 24w PC for lighting refugium
    > barracuda sequence return pump with "T" for manifold that serves the chiller, ca reactor phosban, refugium, carbon reactor.
    > 3/4hp prime tower chiller
    > calcium reactor Korallin c4002 good for 1600g / with 20# CO2 tank
    > 2x 3/4" seaswirl
    > 2x 6200, 2x 6100, 2x 6000 on a tunze 7095 multicontroller
    > Neptune controller ACpro
    > CS12-1 with sedra 9000 and sedra 5000 pumps.

    Here are some of the pictures I got for now.

    There's so much real estate their, WOW! What type of tang is that, the largest fish? That tang must be your center piece. ;)

    Looks good - Perry.

    Thanks for the complement Ray. You're right I got too many fishes in my tank. So, tomorrow I'll be building my nitrate sulfur reactor.

    Once I got my nitrate lower I'll give you a call for that Palmer's milli. Thanks again.

    Perry do you see any aggression between the rabbitfish? I've heard multiple species will not get along well at all, granted your tank is quite huge but still.

    Then again I've also heard the same thing about tangs.

    I saw some agression during the first few days but settled down after about a week. I guessed bigger rabbit fish just want to make sure he is the master. But now they don't even care who is who.

    No problem Chris. I actually like this monti because of the polyps blinding brightness. It has great potential though. If you check out the color of the base of this monti a few weeks after I got it when it was stil small, that base is orange.
