wow it looks awesome! how many fish are in there?

I dream of a better tomorrow, where chickens can cross the road and not have their motives questioned.....Dont worry about what people think, because they seldom do.......If you cant laugh at yourself I'll be glad to do it for you.....stop trying to impress people, they're too busy trying to impress everyone else to notice

I agree. It looks awesome. Are you going to be putting up a background? What will you be stocking the tank with? It looks really nice....envious!

Probably just a blue paper background is what I'll put up. Not much point in it until I get the sump done and move the skimmer and things down to it. The sump is a 30 gallon acrylic drilled and connected to a Blueline 1200 gph pump.

2 Koralia 2s, 1 Koralia 1, and an Aquaclear powerhead all running off a Blueline Tsunami wavemaker. Aquaclear will be a salt mixer out of the tank once the sump is running.

Fish not too much more in there probably a six line or red headed fairy wrasse and a yellow tang. There's a few varieties zoa and several stalks of Pulsating Xenia in there. My 12 gallon Aquapod has the torch, montis, exotic zoa, etc. in it that I'll be propagating from there into the 75.

Lighting is a Hamilton fixture with 2x 175W 10k MH and 2x 110W VHO 1 Daylight 1 Actinic. I want a more blue look I think the 10k will be swapped out for 14ks next week.

Nice Score. Am I the only one who thinks brain corals are very bizzare looking? Creepy but cool. Perfect addition for Halloween!
