That is a serious 'investment' in radions.

Nicely build! I love the aquascape but I would be concerned on your flow on the other end of the tank.

The parrotfish is totally reef safe. I used to have one back then when it was not very popular yet and never touch any corals.

Cant wait to see more of this amazing setup!

I like the carpentry work and the sliders. They will come in handy.

About that Parrotfish on your list. Are you referring to a scarus quoyi? I looked and was unable to find one for sale anywhere. Do you have a connection you don't mind sharing?

It looks like the fish sold, but it's the Diver's Den portion of Live Aquaria.

If you're in Tampa I would also recommend reaching out to John at FAOIS or Doug at Drysdale - they might be able to help you source one locally.

This is a couple of the items that are outside of the "fish room/ equipment room" what's in this picture of what's outside is the following:

125 gallon Outdoor frag tank (plumbed into the main system)...this used to be my old quarantine tank.

Mini split condescending unit for the "fish room"

Oversized UV Sterilizer...this is from my old system

1hp Tradewind chiller...this is also from my old system

3,000 watt titanium inline chiller

Two R/O water filtration tanks from Rayne water systems

There is one on there and I saw it too but I'm on the fence about it because of its size (7.5") also the price is a little high...not sure if I should pull the trigger??? Tough decision! Any thoughts ?

Decision is entirely up to you but I like their 14 day guarantee. If you can find one locally, that would be ideal but if you can't, this is a good option.

Thanks for the encouragement Mike810, it took a lot of thinking and patience...also took many different minds to come up with some of the answers to the difficult issues .
