    Well looks likes this is off to a great start. What do you plan on keeping.
    Is all the sand and rock new also or is this what was running for the past while.

    Sand is new, all rock from the old tank was transferred over and also added another 75lbs roughly of real reef rock. The tank is up, running and cycled. everything has been moved but it won’t let me upload the other pictures due to security reasons?i have nems, zoas and some lps.. plan is to fill the now void tank and also add some sps to the mix..we built the rock scape so the nems are segregated on the left side, zoas in the middle, lps in sand bed, sps on the right side (eventually).it houses a yellow tang, hippo tang, blonde naso tang, pair of regular clowns, pair of anthias, pair of black storm clowns, pipe fish and a lawnmower blenny

    The tank’s looking great! Quite an upgrade with the Ecotech gear. The Radions look like they have perfect spread for that footprint.

    Thanks!i am very pleased with the eco tech setup.I was originally looking at 3 xr30’s but figured it would be overkill. Really glad I went with the 15’s instead.
