thats my tank, same size, same overflow and inflow and i bet yours is acrylic? truly a piece of art, you got it, one question, you dont have any extra power heads, the reason i ask is that a week ago i got these tunzi's and they blow water like crazy and the fish dont like them at all and my tank looked better before those, you dont have them, i will basically put the coral etc over time to look like yours, why the tunzi's and how long has your tank looked like that, thanx soo much

I'd really like to see some pics after you upgrade the lights. I've been gathering parts for a 180 for awhile now, the only lights I have so far are (3) 250w halides, undecided about actinics as of yet.

Oh, and your tank looks awesome right now IMHO. :rollface:

Actually there are 2 802's in there. 1 in each corner aiming out at a angle towards the front of the tank. 1 high and 1 low. I have a mag 24 for my main return but I have it backed down a little dur to micro bubbles,Probably puitting out about 1600 an hour. The tank is glass but the sump is acrilic.

I should have the rest of the lights in by early next week. I'm waitingon a sheet of polished aluminum. I'm gonna cover most of the inside of the hood with it.The tank is not as bright as my 125 was due to 7 more inches in hight and the loss of the blue back.

I've got hamilton screw in type(forgive my lack of not knowing the real name) and they are 14 k's.The actinics are coralife 03's. I have some blue actinics also and was goona time them to cme on 1st after the moonlights then go to the 03's and then to the halides, but the wife don't like the blue. I kinda like it when all 3 are on. Gives that slight blue hue to the water.

I see what you mean about the loss of light going from the 125 to the 180, and that's understandable. It think you made the right choice with the background though, the black looks much better, really highlights the colors in your corals.
