This tank has been running for about 1.5 years now and I just haven't gotten around to sharing it!

Fish:
- 2 Bagaii cardinals
- 3 Pajama cardinals
- 2 clownfish (just regular ones)
- 1x royal gramma
- Flame Hawkfish
- Tassled filefish

I wanted a really simple tank to take care of while I am in school, so all of the corals are just easy to take care of softies and LPS. I added a bit of seagrass as well, which was starting to take off until I added the filefish.... lets just say that fish is not seagrass safe.

Tank: Concept Aquariums with a custom stand made by a carpenter in Saskatoon.
Lighting: Kessil A360w
Controlling: Neptune + autofeeder, breakout box
Doser: Neptune DOS
Skimmer: Reef Octopus Diablo DC170 (updated the pump)
Return: Sicce Syncra
Carbon reactor
Two filter socks
Use to have an MP10 in there, but it broke down and I didn't think it was critical so it wasn't replaced.
Tunze ATO

And a few old set up pictures... ended up tossing the ridiculously high ATO. It was hard to fill and only lasted a few days with the completely open top.

Very impressive and clean looking display. Excuse me while I add your name to the list of potential TOTQ's.

Thanks everyone!

The tank is about 32 gallons. I have lost track of the dimensions... the foot print is 24"x24" , and I think the height is 16". The tank is inset into the stand two inches however to partially hide a 4" deep sand bed, which was put in there to grow seagrass (the filefish derailed that part of the tank).
