A brief description I submitted for the TCMAS meeting I'm hosting on 02/16/08....

Dobbs' 75 Gallon Reef...

After many years without a tank of any sort. I decided to get back into the hobby. I decided that I wanted to do a reef tank this time. A reef tank would be something new and challenging for me - as the SW tank I had in the past was fish only. So, in May of 2006, I purchased an established 75 gallon reef tank that came with an oak stand, and an oak canopy. It also came with a CPR complete filtration system (Model CY194). Since then - I've added to, replaced, and upgraded the system, added livestock, and added various corals.

My goal has been to keep the system as simple as possible.

Below is a list of the items that currently run the system, along with the other products I currently use, feed, etc...

System equipment -
48" Outer Orbit fixture with 2 - 150W/10K Ushio HQI MH's, and 2 - 130W dual actinics.
Mag-Drive 7 sump pump
Tunze 6055 Nanostream Powerhead (x2)
Tunze 7095 Multicontroller
Rio 2100 protien skimmer pump
Visa-Therm Stealth 200W submersible heater
Misc Equipment -
Abundant Flow Water Systems 75GPD RO/DI
Aquatec 8800 Booster Pump
RO/DI storage and mixing station
Dosing & Maint -

"Two-part" Calcium - Dosing 1/2 ounce every 4 hours
"Two-part" Alkalinity - Dosing 1/2 ounce every 4 hours
3/4 of a gallon of RO/DI top-off water - Dosing 5 ounces every hour
7 Gallon water change - 2 to 3 times a month
Skimmer & filter cleaning - once a week
Feeding -

Mysis shrimp - frozen
Brine shrimp - frozen
Green & Brown Nori

Below is a list of corals that I've purchased in the past year-and-a-half. Unfortunately, I lost a few due to a Hydor K3 failure that malfunctioned and contaminated my tank. A couple/few of the larger colonies still, and probably always will, show the damages of that failure....fortunately, most no longer show any signs. All of the remaining corals seem to be doing great now. I'm still trying to figure out what I've lost, and what remains. Anyone wanna help me ID some of these :)?
