Travis's 75g


Recommended Posts

First off I want to apologize for how long this has taken haha, I've been promising to start the build thread since i started the tank in December. 

I purchased the tank, stand, sump, sand, 3kgrye, skimmer, and heater as bundle from someone who never got setup. Sand, heater, gyre were all brand new.

After i put everything together i realized the skimmer and sump wouldn't work together so i found a trigger systems sapphire 26 sump and 10g ato, i upgraded to along with purchasing a syncra SDC 6.0 return pump.

For lighting i found a set of 3 AI hydra 26 HDs, 2 work great and are over the tank now. the third one is for the frag tank and needs a new power supply cord but works other than that.

I used Dr. Tims to cycle the tank, and added the first fish in February a bangii cardinal i purchased from Lori at Aqua Culture in Toledo.

In April I moved my blue hippo tang, yellow watchman goby, and pair of bullet hole clownfish from the holding tank to the display tank.

Sadly I lost most of my coral during the tank transfers, however my tank is pretty full now. An old friend of mine was getting out of the hobby and i purchased most of contents of his tanks in May.

ill upload some photos of the tank from my phone in a few minutes and ill try and get a current picture of the tank after i clean the glass today or tomorrow.

Then I added water and found another rock I liked. Also got my lights put up, yes I know the shelf looks goofy, but it's from the old tank and adds a little support to the light fixture.

Sold the big chalice and added a few new pieces. And my toadstool is fragging itself!


The scoly showing skeleton I got for free to try and save and it's doing great!

The green I got for 25 was showing a little skeleton, doing great!

The orange and the mini I traded for and are both doing great!
