Well starting a new thread, a downgrade actually.
For those passing through that are not aware, my 240 mix build is gone.
I will provide the link to the thread, but long story short.
The 240 gal tank split out twice, so I am letting go of the tank.
I have my Mix Reef in my 75, which I will link the thread for that as well.

This build will be a 125 gal, I have the tank already and will not be going any bigger for the mix Reef system.
But instead I am in the plannings of a 300gal plus SPS build, and that will be where I tie up all my exp, and lots of funds.

Here is the link for the 240
Mikes, 240gal Mix Reef System Build.

And here is the link for my 75
My Mix 75 3.5 years old Pic's

Updates and pics of the 125 coming soon.

Pictures on Pages 6, 8, 11, 17, 23, 24, 29, 36, 46, 47, 48, 53, 54, 55, 59, 64, 65

I have been busy.
Still not sure if I need to go with a CLS for flow, but am leaning towards no.
I would like to save my big pump for the SPS build, and try to get away with just Power heads for flow on this.

So far in and placed 6X 800 gph, and 2X 1300 gph.
The 6 800's are on the back/bottom, and the 2 1300's are on opposite sides near the top.

Plan on more just have not got that far yet.

This will get stained and varnished eventually, as will the rest of the stand one doors and such are fabricated.
