    Default Jarrod's 150 Cube.

    Well, back in the hobby after a year break, and MUCH smaller this time. (this was my old system aprox 1200 gallons, http://www.michiganreefers.com/forum...ixed-reef.html ).

    Anyway, I bought my 150 glass cube from, Ardo Ski. it is 36x36x27. center overflow in the back, came with his lighting, 10 36" t-5's, I have a snapper return pump, Octo 250 skimmer, AC3, I had a stand built out of oak, and the tank is just cycling right now. Will be very basic and very simple. Here are a few photos.

    That looks great! What is your stocking plan? Looks like a lot of room for some awesome sps forests. Whats driving the bulbs?

    stocking plan.. not sure not going to be able to afford much. VERY limited SPS corals, colonies not frags, some Zoa's and Rics down low for filler a few LPS and softies here and there.

    Fish, I wanted a pair of potters angels, or multi color. but we shall see how that goes.

    I love the potters but you will not want zoos with them. Or lps for that matter. I really wanted a potters and/or an eibli they are both lps and zoo munchers from what I have read.

    ya, that scape will provide some awesome look when the corals start growing and tons of swimmin room for the fish.

    Looks good Jarrod. Welcome back. I can't wait to see if that is all the fish you get. I remember your last system. Watchout as you know this hobby is like crack cocaine. BTW love the rockwork.

    all depends on how they are raised and fed, people told me i couldnt have them before, my last reef had a blueface, emperor, ebili, coral beauty. All with clams, zoas, lps and sps, only thing i could not keep was a brain coral.. so we shall see how that all goes together. I took my time to feed them and care for them so they didnt have a need to pick and they enjoyed being fed by me.



    Thanks Slapshot, well its only a 150 so i cant have the MASSIVE collection of fish and tangs like I did last time.. I think i had over 30 fish at one point, and most large tangs. but glad to be back, hope I can stay with the 150 for a while..

    I would really like a few anthias as well.. 3 females 1 male perhaps...
