SC150 Build


Ok, life took over for a little while but I am pretty well finished with the stand and installed the lighting a little while ago. Have the sump, return pump, heater and plumbing. A picture of the tank on the floor. Got a protein skimmer the other day and now it is about installing the RODI unit, getting the tank on the stand and getting MP 40’s.
Lighting will be the big issue. Would like to do a mixed indopac reef. AI’s, T5’s? Don’t know, looking for some advice. Also, UV? Again, this is the beginning of a long journey and just want to do it right.

Yes, I am a giraffe.

That pic of the sump is in the stand? That's really good internal lighting in there! Looks like it'll be nice and easy to see what you're doing under there.
