    Toutouche, it's all in the details my friend!


    Sorry for getting off track there Fisherman...I'm sure someone will have some advice for you...I'm still learning myself at this point!

    Obviously you won't need the same lighting as a reef tank requires...other than that I think it's pretty much the same as a reef tank with the addition of a filter system. Probably a wet/dry filter. I'm going to try and build one for my next project. I looked into going fish only for this tank, but decided to go reef instead. You probably know more than I do at this point so I'll let someone more experienced take over!

    you can still use lots of live rock (70 lbs) for biological filtration. plus it looks amazing. if not, make sure you get a frickin good filter. rena xp3 works well.

    Fisherman,

    If you go with FOT set up. I have a large wet/dry with new bio balls filter forsale that would be perfect for it. Let me know if you're interested so i can send you more info & pics.
    90G bb mixed reef set up in April 2005. I had 40g mixed reef for one year before that
