    Default Smite's 66g SPS reef

    I picked up a 66g SCA built a stand and got it all painted up. I plumb most of it today and managed to get most my equipment inside. My wife didn't want to see the ATO container so I sacrificed my calcium reactor and will be using my doser for now.

    Tank
    SCA 66g 32x24x20
    Sump SCA from the 50g converted to 2 chambers
    Stand is 32x24x40"

    Lighting
    Radion g3 Pro x2

    Filtration
    40 lbs dry rock held with Aquamaxx reef welder
    Still decoding on sand most likely special grade dry
    ATS by Turbo version L2
    Vectron v2 400 UV sterilizer
    Filter sock
    Deciding on carbon reactors right now

    Flow
    Vectra M1 return feeds display and manifold
    Mp40wqd x2 flow in tank

    Other equipment
    Apex Gold
    Tunze ATO
    Ehiem heater
    10g AA top off reservoir

    I'm planning a mixed reef with focus on SPS. More than likely a few zoanthids and maxima clam.

    Fish
    Some type of clown pair leaning toward skunk.
    Leopard wrasse
    Pistol shrimp goby pair
    Either dwarf angel or smaller tang

    I still have work to do on the rock.
    At the very least cover the joint with small rock. 20171023_172029.jpg


    Sorry pics look sideways.

    Well, nice to see you setting up a new tank Matt!
    Look good so far!
    Let me know if you need some acros to test the water. I will donate some of the old school.

    Glad to be back David. I've seen so many LED only tanks that look great that it made me regret not giving the Radions a better chance before the switch. I also don't have central AC in this house yet so I'm trying to save heat wherever possible.

    Very cool, are you going with a SC aquarium tank or just similar dimensions?

    Haha will do buddy & thanks. I couldn't go too long that's for sure. I'll be bugging you about your radion settings in no time.

    Thanks bud! Once i get this thing wet you'll have to come by and check it out and the new house. I think a leopard will do well in this size tank.

    Man... I’m crying right now. There are going to fumigate on the first week of November. Got some of my reef buddies holding my corals but it’s like restarting from step one. ��

    Past the leak test! Failed the picture right side up test.

    Got my radions calibrated and apex/wxm updated. I noticed today that fusion has downloadable schemes and the SPS AB+ that I wanted to try before but was only available with the ecotech software is now there. Stoked on that to say the least.

    I went with Fritz turbo start bacteria to help with the cycle. I didn't acid bath the rocks this time so there should be enough junk to get things going. If not I have some ammonia as well.

    I was hoping to get away with keeping both mp40s on the back wall but i can tell already the center will have a dead spot. Next tank will have some type of low profile overflow for sure.

    This tank has a durso, not bad but does make some noise.

    Took advantage of marinedepots SCR coupon and picked up some dry special grade. I'll be adding that down the line once the tank is in its final resting place.
