The Home Show's 180 Gallon Reef Tank

I recently got started on The Home Show's 180 gallon future reef tank. Over the three day weekend I will load it up with 275 pounds of Marshall Island, Kaileni and Tonga Branch rock. Some technical information: All of my acrylic work, sump, refugium, skimmer and calcium reactor was made by Jeff Turcheck at LifeReef. Lighting is the LumenArc 3 reflectors from Pacific Garden Supply and PFO & BlueLine ballasts (that will go above the aquarium) with 14K bulbs, purchased through Innovative Lighting Solutions . I believe these companies are not only the best in quality, but also surpass all excpectations in customer serivice. This project will be a showcase of my company. Look for many future posts to come!

There's No Place Like Home

It was bound to happen.... This tank raised Yellow Striped Maroon Clownfish in Chuck and Cindy's artificial reef tank has taken to the Condylactis Anemone. Cindy provided me this photo. If anyone has a nice shot of their aquarium, please send it to me and I'll add it to my blog. EDIT 5/23: Cindy has informed me that the YS Maroon has started to "feed" the anemone!
