My new 40 gallon breeder build thread
Well as fate would have it I ended up with a nice 40 gallon breeder drilled with a center overflow, 20gal long sump with baffles and refugium. Tank is already running with 40lbs of fiji pink sand and the refug is full of pods, algae, live rock rubble, etc. The guy I bought the pink mushrooms from a couple weeks ago was selling it with a lot of accessories today for $170. I ended up trading him a .22 long rifle I have had since I was 11 for his son to start target shooting with. Score. I got rid of a gun that has been sitting in storage since the early 80s and get an up and running tank. He sold the lighting though so I'm thinking I'm going to go with 4 T5 bulbs on this one instead of halides. I may just do a FOWLER tank and keep some small angels and such that I wouldn't be able to put in a reef. Definitely want a goby/pistol shrimp pair.
