Big Rick's new tank

Bullitt says we don't post enough in this forum. So here I go!

This is a Red Sea Reefer 750 that I purchased from TriggerFan last weekend. I also received the sand that he had in the tank for the last 4 months. I have had it running for about 6 days.

I am about 5 months into this reefing hobby so I am sure mistakes will be made. Feel free to give me any tips along this journey.

Right now it is stocked with a Naso tang, 2 Banggai Cardinalfish, and 2 Gold x Lightning Maroon Clownfish.

I am using all CarribSea Life Rock arches.

I will be running a refugium in the sump. I will be receiving my order from Pod Your Reef this week. It will include some chaeto, copepods, and phytoplankton.

The lights are an Aquatic Life 48" dimmable T5 with 3 Kessil A360x. I know the 48" is not ideal for a 6' tank but it is what I have at the moment. I honestly didn't expect to purchase a tank this large when I was stocking up on items for my "future build". But it seems to light the tank fairly well.

The return pump is a Jebao DCP-1800 and the skimmer is a Reef Octopus Classic 202-S.

I will really make an effort to keep this updated with all progress on this tank.

Good to hear they're getting along. You going to be adding any wrasses?
I have to at least get a leopard wrasse.
Nice, What do you plan to stock.
I definitely want to get a leopard wrasse and a mandarin goby once my pod population increases. Also a orange spotted goby and blenny. I'm not sure what else. Probably 1-2 other wrasses.

I'm also thinking about either a Potter's angelfish or Golden angelfish.
