this is my first entry on reef addicts. I am looking for some advice and guidence. I have been in this hobby for about 8 years. I have let my tank go down hill when everything that I was bought would die. A few times i wanted to take down my 90 gallon but could not bring my self to it. Recently I found out that I have been giving wrong info from the LFS, I have installed a refugium with live sand, rubble rock, cheato, a bio pellet reactor and a reef octopus 6 skimmer. I still need to upgrade my lights.
I am upgrading to a 195 gal. demensions are 72x24x26. I am building a filter room 9' x 10' filter room in the basement, 2 60gal acrylic tanks for ro/di water and premixed salt water. I will be building a sump area thats 40" x 60" x 17" tall. Refugium area is 24" x 36". I am looking to have sps and lps corals.
equipment I am looking to run on this system listed below.
3 ecotech radion led lights
2 vortech mp40's
super reef octopus 5000
bio pellet reactor
fennix 810 heater
digital aquatics reef keeper elite with net.
external pumps i am still looking into
Looking for advice on any other equipment I may need to have a successful, thriving and beautiful reef aquarium. What good macro algae besides cheato?
