Wow, that is an impressive list of gear! You won't have to worry about upgrading anything! I would suggest to give the Ghost skimmer a complete vinegar bath so that it reduces the micro bubbles and break in period! Waiting on pictures! Good luck!

Did you already pay him? If so that really sucks.

nope , contacted another guy today and will get back to me on Tuesday. I'm guessing around $200 for materials and labor. with this design i will make inset panels on all sides and a set of custom doors.

looking at lighting options for this tank and have come down to basically 3 choices. I will be running an apex controller so keep this in mind

 

2 x Kessil A160

Maxspect Razor

Nanobox Quad

 

what do you feel, would be the best way to go. i am leaning towards the kessils as i couild buy them 1 at a time vrs spending the big dollars right away Any input would be appreciated

after reading about the bluefish controller and all the future plans for it, looks like that may be the controller to go for instead of the apex. The nanobox works wonders on the bluefish as well. I think the decision has been made. NANOBOX quad all the way

Pretty sure you're mixing up an aquarium controller (apex) with the simple LED controller (bluefish).

 

Huge difference.

 

With the aquarium controller you can monitor temp, salinity, PH, control outlets, auto feed, etc.

 

With LED controller, you can JUST control lights
