I have always put off a build thread just cause I'm lazy. I started out just shy of 2 years ago with a 60g cube tank. I got bored with just the 60g and set up a 25g nano. Got bored with the 2 tanks and decided to upgrade the 60g to a 90g. I ran the 25g for about 1.5 years and the 90g a year. Our family decided to stop renting and buy a place, so in August we moved.
My current set up consists of:
72l x 28w x 18h display
60l x 24w x 18h sump
Equipment:
48" 8 bulb tek light
Curve 9 skimmer
Water Blaster 5000 return pump
Vertex 1.5l zeovit reactor
GHL 3 pump doser, Tropic Marin balling system
3x mp 40 powerheads
All controlled by a Apex

Thanks for the kind words!

Last night I added the last two fish to the tank. A male kuiter's leopard wrasse and a female blue star leopard wrasse. They came from a well established system and were eating mysis and pellets. I added the two wrasse's after the lights went out and they instantly buried in the sand. To my surprise both came out today and pounded back pacifica plankton. I was expecting them to stay buried for at least a few days. Fingers crossed that this continues and they settle in nicely.

Both leopards seem to be settling in nicely so far. They both are hammering back pacifica plankton and doc's eco eggs. Kuiters even ate some nori that got away from the tangs

Forgot I had this video of my clowns and their purple long tentacle.
This is from my old setup but all three are in my current tank.

Traded out the 48" 8 bulb tek light for a 60" 8 bulb ATI sun power.
Also added 2 jebao rw8's for extra flow.
