180 LPS Reef

I recently moved my 75 reef into a 180 and have some pics of the tank to share. Hope you enjoy! As you can see I could probably stand to move up again!

You didn't have all that in a 75 did you? I love your selection, looks like a lot of money went into your corals, beautiful elegances and I love your brains.

Wow, very impressive tank! What type of lighting do you have on it? Do you have a FTS?

Thanks for the comments. I combined tanks when I set this one up BTW. I have Phoenix 14K bulbs on the tank. The setup is rather simple with just mainly a skimmer for filtration (modified ASM skimmer) and simple chemical media. I have a reactor but haven't set it up!

Here are some more pics
