So since this is my first decent size tank and it is taking a little more work and planning then I prepared for I decided I may as well do a build thread so I can go look at it down the road and see my progress. Tank is 6'x18"x18" and I will be running a halide /T5 combo. Just need to figure out how I'm going to go about doing that.
I decided that I want to put my tank in a new location that is a little more suitable for a 6ft. But that required me to tear out an existing desk that was in that spot. Thanks Ryanerickson for helping me with this part.

I found a stand for my tank but it wasn't in the best shape so Tyler and I stripped it down and made some changes, but it isn't finished yet, so I will post pics soon.

Thanks laurie! Iv made some progress in the last few days. Iv finally got it plumbed and filled it with water and added my sand. I just need to hang my light and put doors on the stand. Tommorow i will be adding some rock and playing around with rock scapes. I put the lights on top of my tank just to see how it looked so its a little close to the water right now. Im also only running 3 of the 5 bulbs.

So rockwork is done and light is hung. Just have to put stand doors on and get more flow. Let the waiting game begin.

So i have started the painful process of swapping some stuff over to the new tank. Once i have everything in the tank i will decide where it will all sit. For now im just trying to slowly get it all into one place.

So i have finally transfered all my coral into my new tank. Alot of the sps is lacking color due to multiple dips but it should come back pretty soon. Not a single coral lost. Ill call this transfer a success.

Yea i had aefw. The worst of the worst. Since then I have dipped them once a week every week for 9 weeks. After dip 4 i didn't see anymore worms. But wanted to be extra cautious before adding them to my new system, so dipped an additional 5 times. Colours pretty much vanished, but on the bright side I'm 100% sure there is no more pests :mrgreen:

Looks good, Nick, and am sure won't be long before this tank will look even better than your previous one (which was a real show case).

Thanks Walter, I'm sure this one will be out of room within 6 months :lol: gonna have to get creative with this one though, because i dont think I can go much bigger then this in my condo lol.

Hi,

I have read all the posts about your tank quite closely as I am going to shut down my 100 gal corner tank due to leakage. Then I going for a 6ft tank like yours but 72"x22"x22". I have already decided on black sand and it's nice to see you using it in your reef.

Could you itemize your equipment and what brands you used? It would be really helpful.

Did you drill only one hole for intake and outtake? My tank has two. After all, water has to go in and then out. I would like to have 2 holes in the corner and hide the pipes with an curved overflow box. Does that make sense? Do I make sense?

Feels pretty damn good I wont lie. I almost gave up and sold everything a few times along the way, but glad I stuck with it.

Iv been using black sand for just over 2 years and love it. Takes a bit more work to keep it looking good though because you see every little spec of rock or coral or whatever happens to be on the sand. As far as equipment goes, I don't know the brands of half the stuff I have. I have an Apex running my main components, I have a 5 bulb Aqua Medic halide fixture, an ATI skimmer rated for 400-500 Gallons, I am currently just using my old MP10s from my 72 gallon and they have actually amazed me at how much water they can move. I will be switching to the gyres though in the near future. Other than that its pretty basic, phosban reactor, chiller, and heater. As far as holes go it's in this thread that shows the hole drilling process used on my tank. I have a herbie overflow, so 2 holes for the overflow and 1 for the return. Hope this helps

Awesome looking set up, really like the look of the black sand!

How and what paint did you use for the stand? I have ano old cabinet I am setting up for a 29g long/shallow (40"l x14"w x12"h) and am wanting to paint it white, just not sure what type of paint or best way to apply, yours looks great!

Hey chris, thanks man, its on its way again. Its been awhile for me forsure but trying to get back into it. As far as my corals go, alot of them died during the shut down and transfer, and what didn't die was put into Ryans tank. ( Thanks Ryan). Ill post some updated pics soon, I have all of my remaining zoas and lps in the tank now, just waiting a bit until I add my sps.
