    finally

    My setup is finally up and running so far so good no leaks.

    90g main coast 2 coast overflow box 2 2" bulkheads at either end stand pipes spaflex all glued and going good yeah !!!! 2" sand bed. circulation unsure yet but probaby 3 hydor 3 or 4. as for LR currently I have 70lbs of LR but I may dump it in the sump and have 3 raised LR platforms with some tree like rock structures with lots of holes in the rock probably create a bonsai look aquascaping.

    90g sump 3 section

    1st sec skimmer/filter socks gravity feed water actually the skimmer is on the oustside because the stand is just shy of the height required for me to remove cup for cleaning. so a maxi jet 1200 is pumping the water from there to skimmer. Reef Octopus DNW 150.

    2nd sec refuge 2" sand bed thats it so far

    3rd sec return pump Ocean runner 6500 held back way to much flow going on when fully rippin.

    as for lighting lumen bright reflectors 2 x 250 w mh and maybe some led moonlights for main tank display. sump work light reflector with led light bulbs. thats what I am thinking for lighting

    as for everything else not sure but ideas thoughts and anything else is always welcome.

    thats all for now folks

    well I am planning on keeping a little bit of everything. seeing I have approx 160G of water throught the system cycling and cleaning at 1700 gph I think I can get away with having a little more then a normal 90g. ontop of my skimmer skimming close to 200gph.

    so here is what I am thinking these are just ideas plans thoughts nothing is concrete.

    as for corals

    LPS
    SPS
    Softies

    any suggestions :b15: ?

    as for fish

    bottom: blennies /gobies

    middle: a school of small anthias or chromis or cardinals or wrasses I curently have to clowns in the small tank.

    maybe A small tang under the 10" size fully grown.Powder Brown, Blue Carribean ,Blue ,Yellow ,Chevron or Purple

    top:firefish or dwarf angel?

    lots of inverts some crabs,snails,shrimp etc

    in the refuge some LR/CHETO and maybe some other filter type stuff

    again I am always open to ideas suggestions etc.

    Thanks for looking

    What I have left to get for the set up to be complete.

    30-50lbs of LR

    3 hydor 4 I think is best but if there is a better combo please let me know

    lighting (reflectors/ ballests/ bulbs ) I am thinking on going with lumen bright reflectors, coralview ballest 250w and either 15k or 20k bulbs either single or double ended. I think DE bulbs are my prefrance.

    corals
    fish
    inverts

    @ a later date
    calcium reactor
    phosphate reactor
    kwalk reactor

    makes me want to start again, or at least start another :b16:

    you may want to reconsider your tang choices, those are some pretty big boys. for a 90G i would suggest looking at a tomini / kole / yellow, they're a little better suited.

    keep up the good work and please make sure to post some updates.

    thanks for the info a4twenty.
    I had just said those ones because they were all listed under 10" and live aquaria said the min tank size should be 70 g thats why I suggested those.
    but thanks for the suggestions.

    well I found a sick deal on LR :011: so I went and picked up 50lbs on sunday and finished setting up the LR display in the tank. there is 150lbs throughout the tank 120lbs in the main tank and 30lbs of LR in the fuge. I will post some pics. hope you enjoy. the aquascaping is almost perfect wish I had a few different pcs of LR which would have made it alot more of what I was going for but hey you have to work with what you have.
