    My 220 build

    Thanks to Melissa's 560 gallon custom aquarium, I now have a 220 gallon aquarium. This is the beginning, just keeping some rock alive.

    I haven't updated for awhile. Here are a few picks of items picked up at the Frag Events at the club meetings.

    looking good david... if your on this side of town let me know ill give you a few more pieces to add to that tank. I have a few extra pieces of birds nest n so forth i can get rid of. should be putting corals into the 300 this week i think. finally have the water quality stabilized and parameters are sps range now.
    Four individual systems Right now.
    Modified Red sea 250 with attached 20 gal frag system XR15 pro light on FRAG tank, combo t5 reef bright led on main tank, now @100 gal total mostly sps tank, auto WC, Custom life reef filtration system Fuge and skimmer. KALK ATO chiller mp10's.
    30gal red sea 130d lps/softies/anemone tank, kalk ato, reef bright led strip.
    40 quarantine set up.
    500 total gallon marineland 300 DD main system 9 months old now and stabilized. T5 VHO lights/ BLUE led strip, Fully custom built LIFE REEF sump and FUGE, AWESOME 48" tall skimmer, and 1000+ gallon rated custom Ca reactor, attached SPS frag system and LPS frag system.
    I am expanding into this one ATM bit by bit,

    Still lots to learn about the hobby but I have amassed a great collection of real beauties and a FRAG saw will be in my future I think. I have broken past the stage of keeping things alive and now there actually growing out. Which is a big hurdle for many beginners I must admit. Good information and advise is hard to get sometimes and the club has done wonders with respect to quality advise and help in the hobby.

    THANKS Orlando Reef Educators Organization!!!!
