My New SPS Reef

Hi Guys,

Im going to a new setup and will be just for SPS again

I choose something small because is easy to keep and cheaper

The size is 40 x 16 x 18. I already had the layout in my head and my live rock are already ready to go in the main display




The Setup :

Skimmer Bubble King 180, this skimmer is small , just like my sump





Easy to clean the neck :



Again Im going with SunPower ATI, 6 x 39W. You cant go wrong with this lighting






For flow, Im going with 2 x nano tunzes, one 6025 and one 6045 plus the return.

Some stuff that I also bought :





Everything is ready to go :

I will use the rk just for time function and control temperature








I think that in a couple of days everthing will be ready and my new reef running.

In this new reef I want something clean, less corals and fishes

Two pictures of my last two tanks....now is just pics , and good memories :

The second one, was a nano and I want something bigger now, this nano was cool but is very small and corals like SPS grow out the tank very quickly

Hey dude looks like its gonna be a nice setup. Once you get everything running, please let me know how you like the pro-bio pellets. I just bought a fluidized media reactor and the same brand of pellets. I plan on using them on my new tank once it is set up and has finished its nitrification cycle. Thanks!

The corals was very big for the nano, and I want now to try something new, a new aquacaspe. I hope I can achieve with this new setup a better and natural aquacaspe

Best Regards

Subscribed. I loved your last tank and just know this one is going to be awesome. I am setting up a similar tank myself with these specs:

28L x 20W x 18H tank with starfire front and left side
6x24watt Ati Sunpower - 4x ATI Blue+, 1x ATI Purple plus & 1x ATI Blue Special
Bubble Magus NAC6 Skimmer

I am going for the minimal coral look, but I as my setup will have a really good skimmer and be Vodka dosed, I'm going to have a school of Blue Chromis!

I havent even ordered my tank. Just have the lights so far! Going to order in the next couple of weeks.

Hi Guys,

Warm up today ! Tomorrow I will get my hands in my display and sump, cant wait

Today I did the holes in the wall and will fire the ATI to test the bulbs




This is the sand that I will use, it is a beach sand that I got close to my house




And this is the live rocks, just a couple of them, I want a clean aquacaspe. The live rocks are running for 3 months in this bucket




Well, tomorrow I will take some pics of the display

Best Regards

Is that the actual look of the colour in real life? I ask because I have 4x ATI Blue+, 1x Ati Purple Plus & 1x Ati AquaBlue and the colour looks like about 15K, no way as blue as pictured in that photo.

From my reading around of the 6xsunpower units the 24w unit and 39w units have around the same level of PAR. Our tanks will be similar and I look forward to seeing how they come out. I KNOW your tanks are always beautiful, but at least I can try to replicate your results with similar equipment.
