180g build.... slowly but surely


Recommended Posts

Upgrading from a 120 to a 180. I've always wanted a 6' tank but never had the room.  Recently moved into a new house so of course time to upgrade, lol. I bought the 180 and stand off of a fellow reefer. The 180 has never had water in it. I had a friend of mine build me a canopy and refinish the stand. We went with a furniture quality stand and canopy. Turned out excellent.  The front of the canopy lifts up to access lighting and for easy coral/live rock  placement.  Most likely wont get wet until spring.  I have alot to do.  Sump is going in my basement.

Well I couldn't get used to the top being totally closed so I built another canopy. I built a floating canopy. I love it. Looks super clean! Just need to fill the screw holes and touch up paint.

Well switching up my lighting... I am going back to T5s..  I loved my t5 setup on my 90. Switched to LEDs when I got my 120 grew coral but nothing like my T5s did.  I kinda like the simplicity of them.. set it and forget it. I just got a 60" ATI 8 bulb fixture.
