wow thanks everyone for welcoming me so fast!

how do i start up a blog?

thanks for the compliment on my tank too

well like i said its a glass 180, it has a center overflow

for filtration i have: a 40g sump, ASM-G4 skimmer, a coralife 36w uv filter, i run carbon 24/7, i have a refuge area for my macro algae i use chaeto which is lighted by a homedepot 150w 6500k fourescent bulb and reflector on reverse light cycle.... my return pump is a pan world 100px-x i also have an auto top off system

i use a MRC-CR2 calcium reactor to keep my Ca and alk at 420 and 8dkh

i have a via aqua cc-50 chiller

for flow i use a combo of a closed loop and seios.... i have 2-1" intakes that join 2 a 2" T down to my sequence Dart pump which returns straight back up a 1.5" return to an Oceans Motion 4 way to create a random flow... i also have a Seio 1500 in one corner and a Seio 820 in the other... i figure i got about 40x's turnover between return pump,CL and seios

for lighting i run 3 PFO mini pendants powered by PFO HQI ballast using Phoenix 14K 250W bulbs... i have PC actinic that comes on before and after the MH lighting

ive got about 175lbs LR 120lbs LS

as for fish i have a blue tang, fuzzy yellow dwarf lionfish, yellow tang, 4 lyertail anthias, mandarin, lawnwomer belnny, daimond goby, siscortail goby, and clarki clown

i have about 3 big turbos and 4 big astreas and about 20 hermits and one serpent star

corals i have differnt things about 11 sps from millis to stag to poccilipora, i have a RBTA, different LPS such as a bubble, frog, acans and blastos, then i have different softies including my colt fiji finger leahter and various other zoo's and polyps and shrooms.... i have a large 10" squamosa in the center of the tank and 2 other blue croceas in my sump cuz my hippo started to like the taste of clam mantle outta nowhere!

as far as maintenance i change 30G with fresh RO/DI and via aqua ocean pure pro salt

my water tests are the following
Am,Na,Ni,PO4 all undetectable
Ca 420
Alk 8dkh
Mg 1350
temp80
saltinity 1.025-1.026

anyways i think thats about it and thanks for the warm welcome hopefully i can be of help at times and i can gather some more good knowledge from u fellow reefers :beer:
