So I took the proverbial plunge and ordered a 135-gallon tank yesterday. The new baby is 72"x18"x24 with a center trap overflow and a black back. SOOOOOOOOOOOO....what do you think I should do with it?
Give me all your ideas on equipment, livestock, etc.

Ive decided to do a large FOWLR tank instead of a nother reef. I keep changing my mind, but im sure now.
Its going to be from 90 to 120 gallons, I havent decided.
I want to keep a tang or two, one or two of the smaller triggers, an eel, and maybe a lionfish. If any of these are incompadable...
tank is a 220 will be a mix of sps and lps. closed loop will have 4 1" outputs 2 3/4" outputs and 2 2 3/4" intakes. was planning on a dart for return and one for closed loop. they are on sale for $205 is this a good price? for a skimmer i was thinking of a octopus nw-150. thanks for ant input.
I have a 120g tank with a single overflow with a 1.5 (I think) bulkhead. I'm planning on getting a Sequence reeflo dart pump for my return and that pump has a 2" inlet. I know I will probably never be able to run it wide open with my tank since I'm limited on the overflow. My question is, do I...
Lookinng to setup a closed loop on my new 75. The pump needs to be a pressure rated pump and very quiet. This will be going in my front room. I am thinking of running some penductors on this to really increase flow in my tank.
I just read in the sequence forum that its fine to run these pumps on and off every 15 minutes. This may mean that I won't go with Oceans motions wavemaker but rather 4 darts on timers. This would create random flow and save lots of money. What are your thoughts?
Ok I got a 5 ft. long 75 gal. tank that I had sitting around for about a month now. I want to get it lifted off it's feet and on its way. I was originally thinking of making this a prop. tank, but who here has a system on only growing corals and nothing else. I thought so, only a few of you...
I need to build my CLS soon for my 125 (72x18x22). I have the design I want for it but have a couple of questions on it. First of all I have around 600 gph of flow coming from my sump that is returned through one 1 inch pvc outlet in the tank. I want my CLS to produce atleast another 600 gph...
I know ive brought this up already. I finally got everything "re-setup" on Friday and filled with water. I turned on my PCX-40. Sounds like a hurricane in my house. Its a great pump but i cant believe its so noisy. It would be awesome if i could mount it outside or something or if had a...
I just set up my closed loop system and now I have a 180 gallon tank of bubbles with a few fish in it.:doh: Now to the question, how do I go about finding out where the air is entering the system? As this is the first time I have put together a cls I have no idea how to figure it out so I...
I'm looking to trade/replace my T4. It is totally silent, but I'm trying to shed as much heat as possible, and from what I read, this may be adding some heat to my system. Here are the pumps I'm looking for:
Gen X pck40 (Mak 4)
Iwaki 55 rlt
Gen X pcx55
Other suggestions? my...
I'm looking for some advice on a good return pump for my 120g. My requirements are:
--around 1200gph at 5'-8' head
--LOW HEAT EXCHANGE (the whole reason I'm getting a new pump)
--ability to run well with 1" intake and 1" output
--Decent seals--the pump may get some sediment from...
Tank Rebuild (setting up new 150 gallon)
Well I took the plunge my tank is completely torn down ready for the rebuild. As many of you know I am switching to a BB tank from a DSB. I am going to be updating this thread as progress allows. Here are the last pics of the tank together. Now remember...
Just sent this question to Oscar, but I thought I'd post it to the whole forum:
Oscar, I've got a question for you--
You have a similar set up to mine, and I was wondering if you experience problems with high temperatures and what you do about it. I read on Wetwebmedia a post relating heat...
Anyone using one of these?? It sounds like a cool way to alternate currents, can anyone tell me a little about these and if they work, are you happy with it... etc etc...anything you don't like too
I have been running my 200 gallon reef tank for six years and need to replace the pumps. I currently have three Mak4 A40LX pumps (1182gph each) with one running my skimmer and the other two returning to the tank from the sump. Two of the pumps recently have been making excessive noise and I...
