    Default My 180 gallon built in

    I have recently upgraded from a 72 gallon bowfront to this 180 gallon built in. I am still working on the filtration system and aquascaping. I currently have a large yellow belly blue hippo (main reason for the upgrade) a powder blue tang, a pair of black clowns, a pair of perc clowns, a few schooling chromis, several different gobies, a garden eel and a few other fish along with a bunch of different snails, crabs and shrimp. I plan on adding at least another 100 pounds of live rock and once I know everything is perfect with the filtration I want to really pack the tank with corals. Currently I have a nice devils hand leather, frogspawn, chalice, polyps, zoos, brains, ricordias and a few others in there. I am seriously considering hiring someone or a company to help me perfect the filtration (add calc reactor, u/v sterilizer, and a top off system. I would also be interested in having this person/company perform my monthly maintenance and water changes. If anyone can refer me to someone reputable that could help me out it would be greatly appreciated.

    Hey being as were from the same area and sent a few PM's back and forth, there really isn't many LFS's close. but i would recommend checking out Choice Aquariums, its on 12mile and orchard lake, so its faily close and i think they do maintance stuff like you want.

    looking good! i should swing by sometime and check it out.
