So I bought this tank back on Easter and it’s really just been sitting there collecting dust. So here is the progress so far. All of the equipment has been purchased except a calcium reactor an apex a couple of extra power heads and maybe even an alkatronic. I started to dump salt in last night...
So I recently purchased a 96x32x28 acrylic tank.
48" PM pro sump
57w AquaUV sterilizer
Royal Exclusiv vertex Alpha 250 skimmer maybe my Reeflo Orca Pro 250 haven't decided yet
Vectra L1 return
Vectra L1 closed loop
2x Gyre 250 one on each end
2x 36" aquatic life Hybrid T5
So what is everyone using. I have maybe 3 months left of the Rowalith C+ which was a magnium blended media for the calcium reactor. I use a deltec which is a fluidized reactor. Since they dont make the Rowalith anymore I am in search of a new media or blend of media.
I was thinking a tiny Chevron and some borbonius to go with the 2 mated clownfish. Thoughts? Recommendations? I dont want to hear it from the tang police that the Chevron will outgrow the tank I know that and I have a 300+ in the works once I find the new house. And GO!

So, over the past couple weeks my alkalinity has been creeping up, but my coral load has increased. Calicum is at 450 mag is around 1600, alk has risen from 9.25-10.64. I took the Calcium reactor offline when it started to creep up. The only difference in the tank is the addition of Reef...
So I picked up a new toy, once it gets in I will provide a full review. Looks like an interesting device and I am looking forward to additional addons in the future. Post your reviews if you have one

So as I was floating around in my friends above the ground pool a thought hit. What about turning one of these bad boys into a saltwater aquarium. What do you think the water temp would get up to during the summer? Do you think this would work. Might be an interesting idea, would be cool for...
