Default Clubreef's 90Gallon SPS

Hello Everyone,

I recently gave my tank a scrub down so I thought this would be a great opportunity to post a full and side tank shot. I usually have two big powerheads on the left hand side of the tank..but they are currently getting a vinegar bath at the moment which is a great time to take a full tank shot. It's time to document in case I have a crash

This is a 90 gal lit by 2-250watt DE Giesemann 13Ks and 4 –Actinic T5.

Enjoy

Darryl

Thanks for the compliments. You guys caught the tank in a clean state, the back wall is usually covered in coralline algae.

The tank has been setup for 1 1/2 years.

For livestock, I have the following:
-vlamingii tang
-sohal tang
-blue tang
-solaris wrasse
-2 false perculas
-clam
-blood shrimp
-peppermint shrimp
-red star fish

(I know 3 tangs in a 90 is crazy. They do get along and I plan on an upgrade in the near future.)

For hardware and gear I'm using the following:
-giesmann infinity 4foot light
-Euroreef 6-2+ skimmer
-Zeovit reactor
-Flow is all continuous (Seio 800, Sieo 1500, Tunze 6100)
-Sump is 33g
-Return pump is a mag 12

All supplements are done manually, zeo, Ca/Alk/Mg using the balling method. I suppliment KCL and Aquaconnect Trace Elements occasionally.

Darryl
