    Default Tankster's 120g reef

    I set this up December of 2008 after accumulating the tank & equipment over the previous 2 1/2 years. This allowed me to get some deals on used equipment and participate in a couple of group buys.

    There are two 1" drains in the megaflow overflows plumbed through the wall into a 50g sump and two 3/4" returns.

    Here is the closed loop, Oceans Motions 4way on a Dart pump.

    The 4way alternateS between the front two returns running together then the back two creating a barrel roll effect.

    I never though I'd see it!!!!

    Looks good Rick, nice clean looking tank. How do you like that oceans motion? Does it give you the wave action you hoped for?
