Hi everyone. Thought I'd share my project that started last year. I originally had a 50 gallon reef that I kept for about 3 years but last august found a good deal on this 125 on craigslist. It was a mess and I had to re do the sump and all the plumbing but I found that pretty fun. I transfered over my livestock and started adding...adding....adding....lol Most of my sps are from Ocianic Coral and started as frags. My LPS started in my other tank and transfered over really well. Then they started growing....and growing....lol

So my system.
125 gallon
40 gallon sump
SWC 180 cone skimmer
Fuge full of cheato with LED lighting
Controler for dosing
2 dosing pumps (Cal & Alk)
ATO with 5 gallon bucket
3 Ebay 120 w dimmable LED units


Anyway, here is my baby. Feel free to ask questions or whatever...

You're lucky, it looks like this because of my magic cheato...:wink:

Nice looking tank. What kind of LEDs did you use?

The ebay chinese ones that people refer to at taotronics. 3 units running 125 watts but turned down to like 30% because they are so strong...
