    Default tazzy's 80g reef

    hi all been here for a while figure it is about darn time to post a tank thread

    well first off this tank is an 80g all glass tank that has been running since Nov of 2007. it has been upgraded from a 75g and only because I decided I didn't want the hassle and risk of the hob over flow so I swapped tanks for one that I drilled.

    untill recently I was running bare bottom and lost all of my lps corals and most of the other corals I had I am now running a sand bottom again and seeing good results. however I did experience a couple of losses in the switch back to sand including a yellow tang and my clown tang

    fish in this system include
    1 yellow tang
    1 blue regal (hippo) tang
    1 tomini tang
    1 coral beauty
    1 ebili angel
    3 clowns 2 of which are currently guarding a nest
    2 or 3 brittle stars
    1 bangai cardnial
    1 unknown cardnial
    1 algae blenny
    1 6line wrass
    1 hawk fish (not sure what type)

    fish I would like to add are
    a mandrine or pair
    a second yellow tang again
    maby a sand dwelling goby of some sort

    corals I have are
    shrooms
    yumas or ricks (not sure which)
    galaxia
    pink gorgainian
    many different zoas and pallys
    tyree green toadstool

    last of the live stock is my Rose BTA
    and macro algae in the sump

    Flow is provided by a tunze 6060 for the main flow would love to upgrade to a wave box
    return from the sump is a 700 gph tunze pump that runs after head drop approx 300 to 500 gph

    Lighting is 4x54w t5ho 2x ati pro blue 1x figi purple 1x ati pro color (the white one)
    sump lighting is provided by a led flood light standard household color temp

    my skimmer is an asm g3 skimmer standard no mods to it with the sedra 5000 needle wheel pump

    Nice, clean tank Taz. Your Hawkfish looks like a Pixy Hawk: Cirrhitichthys sp.
