Well I've been working on this build since September and its finally up and running. I know most post as they are building but I didn't know how long it would actualy take me. But here it is.



Deminsions of DT = 60" x 18.5" x 21"
Sump = pro clear aquatics 125 with in sump skimmer
Refugium = 20 long with plexi baffels
Powerheads = 2 JBL 500gph oceanstreams running on the JBL ocean pulse duo, 2 maxijet 125 for flow behind the rock work.
Substrate = crushed coral
Live rock = roughly 50lbs ( I liked the minimal look here)
Lighting = 4 DIY led pendulum flood lights ( will be adding 2 blue actinic less soon)

That's where I'm at so far, its up and running, and just put my coral and fish in yesterday. Any questions please feel free to ask.

The tank is set up with a mixed reef already. The fish I have are
Yellow salfin tang
Hippo tang
Clown
Strawberry pseudo
2 yellow tail damsels

What would you like to see pics of? The pic I posted was from a few weeks ago when I got the lights put up.

The lights are 50w epistar led chips. I bought the 50w led flood lights and changed out the less and driver in each one for 10k less. I then bought pendulum light kits from home depot and it all went together nicely. I'm very pleased with th and the coral love them. All my coral has open up more compared to the pc lights they were under.

I'm also using an aqua lifter for the overflow u tube, it kept getting a bubble in it and lost siphon.
