Postby BigBallin » Mon May 11, 2015 4:41 pm

took down all my little tanks before moving and decided to only run one bigger tank.

Went to Fish Freaks and bought a marineland 180gl and i bought their better stand and canopy. the stand is taller and brings it up for better viewing.
For the rest of the equipment ill be using
- 3 hydra 52s
-director to control the lights
-eshopps adv-300 sump
-eshopps s-300 skimmer
-maxspec gyre
-dct-1200 return pump
- 2 two little fishies reactors
- 800 watt titanium heater and controller



here is the rock work, thanks to Eric and Nate for helping
