Very Nice tank, Ive always liked the look of the Chi. Wish I could answer your question,. but I'm new to reef keeping.

Cool painting above the tank too!



P.S. Is that stock lighting?

Nice tank. I have a chi myself but I couldn't figure you how to turn it into a reef tank. So I just turned my fluval edge into a reef tank. Nice job. Only thing is I would move the speakers away from the tank. Water really amplifies sound and if you are watching movies or listening to music its bad for the inhabitants.

Wow, I remember why I don't post on forums, cause you can never get any answers. My bad y'all don't wanna read ####. So let me single it out. I have two mexican turbos, one of each red and blue hermit and a true percula. Any problems pairing these with two sexy shrimp and a single pompom?


You buried your questions in a wall of text. People skim, especially walls of text and when there are pictures involved. Sorry, I don't have the answers though. It looks good though.


If you have no plans for the original filter and switch and would like to gt rid of it, let me know, I would be interested if the price is right.

I just built a screen top for my open top fluval edge. Bulk Reef Supply sells clear netting. I picked up the rest of the supplies at home depot.

If you want more thread traffic, you need to come up with a sweet thread name.

Spicy thread names are overrated.

Great build thread!!! Gotta love 3 mp10s!!!! It makes sense to me btw. You can never get 180 degree flow difference with only one. Light, water quality and flow. Go man!

If u need some zip ties to clean up your hella mess of wires, I can USPS some to you :ninja:


Love the setup, looks like a clean, classy living room, yet my wife would be chopping my head off if i had wires loose like that! Lol

Cool talk, but you're probably going to have a lot of dead spots with that flow/scape set up. You need at least 4 mp10's for a tank that size. :lol:


Man that's crazy, 3 mp10's. Scape looks good, the fans on the light are hella cool too. B)

Ha, del sol.

I had one of those in high school.

Overkill at it's finest ... lol


Ya got a serious addiction going there my friend.


But, if ya look at it from an "investment" point of view, your all set for that 125+ in the future.


Nice toys and the makings of a sweet tank ya have there.


I didn't see a controller ( for the tank) in there ... maybe i just missed it.
