    Default ETBReefer's 110 Gallon Safari Reef

    Hey gang,
    Been quite a while. I had a 75 that I was setting up, I had a private transaction for some equipment that went very wrong (sold non-working brand name LEDs) and cost me about 1/4 of the tank budget. I was then told on short notice that the property I was leasing was being sold and in Michigan, this is one of the conditions under which your lease can be terminated. I moved into an apartment that had no room for 2 people, 2 cats and a 4 foot aquarium. Soon after, I got a new house, and, after adjusting to my new house budget, my fiancee and I decided it was time for a reef.

    Here's the stuff you guys are interested in:
    I will be setting up a 110 gallon 48x18.5x30 mixed reef in our study. The tank is a Marineland with black silicone and 1/4" glass (she's a beast to haul). First project will be re-painting the stand. I picked up the tank used and the stand is pretty beat up, its the classic black look. After that I will be wiring a 20A receptacle in the study to prepare for the electrical load.

    This will be slow and steady as funds come in for equipment. My Goal is to be cycling by January! I will not give up this time!

    Small update, decided to spend the money for a premium product. Ordered a 16 inch Synergy Reef Shadow overflow. Will be drilling and plumbing the tank Friday this week as well as setting up electrical. I double checked with Marineland that my tank does not have tempered panels. Pictures and/or video to come later this week!
