    What kinda powerheads do you use?

    I have a Jebao PP-20 and Vortech MP40es in my 180 reef. The jebao is 1 year old and so far works like new. It moves a ton of water and does everything the vortech does. Jebao is much quieter too, this is the standard ES vortech though not the newer qd.

    The answer is always Eheim! I use an eheim 1250 that has been running non stop since 2012 in my 75 gallon reef and a 1262 on my 180 gallon reef that has been up for 6 months.

    How many tangs you have

    Standard 180 gallon tank (72x24x24) 3 Yellow tangs 1 Pacific Blue tang 1 Tomini tang I wanted to keep an Acanthurus species as well but have decided my tank is probably at capacity. I have 22 fish total- mostly small fish gobies, blennies, wrasses, chromis, and clowns.

    What has been your perfect size for a reef tank and why?

    I have kept a 75, 20 long, 40 breeder and just recently jumped to a 180 (6x2x2) and am loving it. The only unexpected thing I experienced was my a/c struggled to keep my humidity under 60% so I had to buy a dehumidifier. 240 (8x2x2) is my dream tank but too big for my current space.

    Risk of blue light

    Well damn, I usually stare at my tank under blue led light from 10-12pm every night (2x 165w black boxes). At times I have trouble falling asleep, its amazing I can sleep at all! I have computer glasses I am going to start using for my stare sessions.

    Yellow watchman goby spawned

    The eggs hatched last night after 4 days of incubation, I pulled the egg sack from the tank right before lights out at 11 pm and placed them in a 32 oz bowl floating in 5 gallons of water in the 10 gallon fry tank with gentle bubbles. I checked at 1 am and 50% had hatched. These guys are tiny...

    Yellow watchman goby spawned

    My yellow watchman goby pair have spawned after 5 years together. I have kept them in a 75 gallon reef tank with a big mean maroon clown since 2013. Recently I moved them to a new 180 gallon system where they have been for 3 months with 3 chromis, 2 clowns, and other little peaceful fish which I...

    Another vote for Eheim. I have run an Eheim 1250 on my 75 gallon tank for the past 5 years, this year I set up a 180 reef tank and the 1262 was a no brainier. I run mine internal and heat is a non issue and its silent.
