    Talking MizTanks 26g build.

    Hello all you lovely reefers. Finally after a year and a half of watching lil Miz 8g grow, you finally get to see her grow into a 26g bow front. I have learned so much from everyone here. You all have been patient, caring and kind. But now it is time once again to put you through some more ****,

    The spec's are as follows:

    Tank Aqua Clear 26 gallon Bow Front 24Lx15Wx21H

    Lights=Aquatic life 24" 4x24w t5ho

    CPR Aquatics Aquafuge 2 HOB refugium=19"Lx4.Wx12"T 3g capacity

    Aquatic Internal mini in tank (fuge) protein skimmer=10.5x3x3

    Wave maker from *schminksbro* thank you so so much

    2xnano Korillia Evolutions controlled by wave maker.

    25lbs of Florida base rock from LiveRockRanch.com

    6lbs of mature live rock from lil Miz 8g

    ViaAqua 300w up to 75g Titanium heater with prob, out of tank controller.

    Tank will have a 3" Live sand bed, Fuge will have a 3" Live sand bed.

    Well I thinks that's about all for now. I'm sure some things may change as I go along. Like the sand bed depth, not sure of how deep it should be, same with the fuge. Live rock, good or bad?
    Any and all opinions welcomed. Feel free to p.m. me with any and all ideas I will not be setting this tank up until I have all equipment in hand, 3-4wks give or take

    Thank you

    Jamie a.k.a. MizTanks

    Update: Have decided, along with a little help from *whitetiger* to keep lil Miz8g up and running as she is. Minus the fish and a few corals.

    So this new tank is gonna need some new goodies. I'm going to try my hand with some easier to keep sps's. I'll look to ya'll here to give me some great ideas of what all I'll be able to keep.

    Also I've posted a thread on lighting combo.

    Dang! I forgot about a top. I don't want my fishes carpet surfing and I got some jumpers. Any suggestions?

    Here's a pick of the tank I'm going to be setting up. Looking at it makes me miss my FW's. Used to have 7 in all.
