I wanted to show everyone my system:-) It’s a 40G breeder mixed reef. It’s a neat little system. I am successfully growing SPS and LPS without issues... Also softies of course. I designed it from scratch. This is only my second reeftank. For filtration i have a corner overflow housing a small filter sock with marinepure media underneath. This is also where the mj90” pump is for my ATS and ATO censors. Sounds cluttered but it really not. I’m running a reef racer turf scrubber and Aquamaxx hob 1.5 protein skimmer. No sump. I run kalk in my ato reservoir. I use a tunze osmolator 3155. I also supplement brs alk,cal,mg as needed. I have a reefbreeder photon 32 led. I must say I’m surprised what can be accomplished with hob equipment and great husbandry. The tank was started in August of 2016.
Looking for some nice frags often leads us to look multiple places. In an attempt to make it easier for everyone looking to find that special show piece I decided to try and compile a list of local and E-vendors that sell livestock at this time. This isn’t a comprehensive list so if you know of a reputable dealer please post and I will try and update when I have the time. List is in no particular order Local Vendors Modern Aquatix: www.modernaquatix.com 5508 Elmwood Ave. #410 Indianapolis, IN 46203 Premium Aquatics: www.premiumaquatics.com 401 E Center Cross St, Edinburgh, IN 46124 Central Indy Aquatics https://g.co/kgs/etnuaB 5560 N Tacoma Ave, Indianapolis, IN 46220 Uncle Bills: www.unclebills.com 6 locations to find an address here is the link: http://www.unclebills.com/locations-and-contact The Reef: https://www.facebook.com/thereefaquariumshopindy 5613 North Keystone Avenue, Indianapolis, IN 46220 Simply Saltwater Aquatics: http://simplysaltwateraquatics.com/ https://m.facebook.com/Simply-Saltwater-Aquatics-722970934500316/ This is a local E-Vendor who tells me that he allows local pickup and browsing Aquarium World: http://aquariumworld.publishpath.com/ 116 S.

Hello All, This will be my first post here - moved to Indy from NJ last month and finally have some time to start a journal of my tank build. Any input is encouraged and local information (good places for live rock, SPS, etc.) also welcome. I'll pay my dues and become a member when I get home from work - for now you'll have to settle for the specs. I'll update the next chance I get. Synopsis: The system will be 2 tanks connected to a common 10 gallon sump. The first tank is a 22G Mr.Aqua Rimless (36x12x12) and the second is a JBJ 30G (24x18x19). The 22G will be a dedicated SPS tank with a bare bottom and the 30G will serve as the softie tank with some macro-algae, perhaps an anemone later on. The 10 gallon sump will also be a refugium since the skimmer is a HOB. The system is controlled by the Neptune Apex controller. Equipment: 22G: - MAME Overflow - Mr.Aqua 22G Rimless Aquarium (36x12x12) - 2x OceanRevive S026 LED Lights - MaxiJet 900 Return - Vortech MP40 on Reef Crest Mode - AquaMaxx HOB-1 Skimmer w/ Bubble Reducer (skimmer for both systems) - 3x 50W ViaAqua Heaters - BeamWorks 20" Refugium Light 30G: - JBJ 30G AIO Aquarium (24x18x19) - The back chambers will be a refugium entirely. - OceanRevive S026 LED Light - Stock Pumps for flow (~500gph) - 3" Sand Bed - MAME Overflow - MaxiJet 1200 Return Pics: Anyone know the best place for live rock? I'm likely going to go with Premium Aquatics as I've already got 25lbs. of very good base rock from MarcoRocks yesterday.
