Been a while since I updated this! The tank is cycled and getting stocked! Here are some pictures ImageUploadedByTapatalk1459044135.056822.jpg ImageUploadedByTapatalk1459044149.969241.jpg ImageUploadedByTapatalk1459044159.437469.jpg ImageUploadedByTapatalk1459044176.937523.jpg ImageUploadedByTapatalk1459044206.724185.jpg ImageUploadedByTapatalk1459044261.677779.jpg ImageUploadedByTapatalk1459044270.294911.jpg ImageUploadedByTapatalk1459044285.611164.jpg ImageUploadedByTapatalk1459044297.628637.jpg ImageUploadedByTapatalk1459044318.214531.jpg

Almost a year running update!!! The Nems fill up some space. And the purple star polyps have taken over the right! Left side Has been restocked a couple of times due to a crash a couple months ago.





Still trying to fill it in. Thinking I need more rock and a new aquascape. Thoughts?

Fixed the leaks from the stand pipes. I have a lot more coralline! Upgrades lights from reef and sea LED with a reefbrite to two black box LED's and have had some great growth!

Hi tim. Do you still have this tank? Was just browsing the forums and saw your thread. Im setting up my 6th tank which is a 72 bowfront. I am also building a 20l sump lol. Interested in seeing how your sump is set up. Here is s pic of the stand i just finished.

Still running! The sump is decent. I wish I made the baffles higher for the refugium and return. I keep the water level a bit higher on the right side with an ATO.

I will post an undercarriage photo later today when I get home from work.

I think I would have over all made it 3 compartments rather than 4. The baffles higher and widened the drain side to accommodate more live rock. But over all still happy with the set up. I modified the return with the egg crate so I could raise the water level and not have the cuprela (sp) get sucked in to the return.
