Hello everyone, I wanted to introduce myself here. My name is Clint and I've been reefing for about 5 years. I'm normally lurking and active on Sdreefs but wanted to see what else is out there.

I'm located in San Diego...Chula Vista to be exact.

I have run various size tanks over the past years, but currently have a 225g (72"x30"x24") running with a 50g sump. For lighting I'm running an 8 bulb 60" gen2 ATI Hybrid with 2 60" SBARs as most of my reefing consists of SPS with LPS dropped in here and there. My current setup has been running for a year this March, which was an upgrade from a 110g.

I'm happy to start reading through the site and hopefully maybe contribute some day with the vast knowledge I'm sure you all have.

Thanks for having me

Heres a couple pics of my current tank.

Haha, what's up Mel. I signed up a few years ago, but never used the site. I'm looking forward to seeing a different perspective here.

Welcome. Very nice. Would you mind sharing your ATI settings? Also interested in seeing how you mounted the sbars. Thanks!

WELCOME, I HEAR A LOT OF SAN DIEGAN USE SCRIPPS WATER. ARE YOU ONE OF THEM?
IF SO, WHAT DO YOU THINK? HOW'S THE PARAMETER FOR SCRIPPS WATER IN LA JOLLA.

I just recently stopped using Scripps and started with Tropic Marin Pro Reef salt, due to an ICP test that showed a lot of trace elements missing such as (Potassium, Boron, Strontium, etc.)

When I get a moment I will take a pic. Are you referring to just the LEDs?
