    Hey people of BAR! Here is my story.
    After a green hair covered, neglected, and modified to the tanks limit bio cubes owner was mentally beaten down by his family member to start over or let it go. I decided to let it go and go bigger! Haha came across a elos so I jumped on it.
    The plan with this build is to be light bio load because I don't have time to do weekly water changes so bi weekly it is. I want sort of a minimalist look anyways. I had a 50 tall before that must have had 70+ pounds of LR it was cool at the time but too hard to clean!
    Equipment list
    *elos 70 55 gal DT
    *elos 400 sump I think it's 20gal?
    *eshops s120 skimmer
    * two little fishes phos ban reactor w/gfo
    *ehiem 1260 return
    * I forget the series of power heads but as of right now two hydors two jebaos
    For bio filter all I have right now is about 25lbs of LR and 50 lbs of "live" sand
    Stocking list as of now
    1 yellow tang
    1 coral beauty
    5 red leg hermits
    Unknown zoa
    2 Unknown stonies (maybe you guys can help haha)

    Welcome to the Elos club. You'll never settle for anything less.
    Beautiful tank but those pumps are an eyesore ;)
    Also, be careful with the random frags as those are a great way to introduce pests into such a beautiful display tank.

    I could not agree more about the pumps they are temp and am at least gonna get rid of two of the power heads. I was trying to figure out what kinda flow I wanted and what the tank can handle. Thanks for the advice about the frags I should have learned my lesson before about that too a previous tank got tanker over by mushroom anemones

    Looking good so far. I used to have a lot of flow in my 70 because I don't have any sand, but my vortech controller crapped out, so now I just have a gyre 130 with a tunze blowing across the back and it's doing a good job.
