Default My 75 Gallon Build

I finally got my 75 to the point where I would like every one to see it, 4 months later than I wanted but part of that was due to the fact that I wanted to get the Aquascaping right the first time. And I think it was worth the wait, what do you think.

Here are the spec's
Display tank – 75 Gallon
Fuge – 37 Gallon with an actual water capacity of 34 gallon
Sump – 50 gallon with about 25 Gallons of water. Return pump from sump – Mag 7
Closed loop - Sequence Reeflo Dart pump – 3750 GPH , 2” outlet with 4 – 1” returns. I figure I am getting about 3000GPH out of this since pump is about 4 inches lower than tank.
Wave Maker – one 1” SCWD ( soon to be 2 )

Total live and base rock – 100 Lbs in tanks and 40 in sump. All Rock structures especially the rock wall on the right end are built on a 1” PVC frame, Rocks are epoxied and wire tied together for stability.

Lighting – Currently 4 bulb 216 watt T5 fixture. I am working on an 8 bulb 432 watt T5 hood with 8 Blue and 8 white Moon lights.

Current residents:
1 - Hippo Tang
1 - GSM Clown
1 - Fire Fish
2 – Ocellaris Clowns (Bonded pair)
Various Snails and Hermits.

Corals: Mostly mushroom, zoas, leathers a few LPS and a few Monti's. I will update this with better list later.

Now on to the photos....

No pictures but I have some drawings I will post as soon as I get a few minutes. Unfortunately i just got my camera back from Sony after 3 months, after repairs so I couldn't get allot of pictures during the build.

That would be great. I'm doing a 75 and your aquascaping is exactly what I want to do.

Would love to see what equipment (pics) you use, maybe a shot of the sump/fuge (if you use either). Beautiful Tank.
