Yes a 40 Watt UV. I will be putting ozone on the tank as well. Waiting for my LFS to get his shipment in.

Here is a few new pics. The new Regal is doing well in the tank. My French sure does not like him much LOL. The Chromis in the tank schooling adds a nice touch.


Pics taken with just MH on no VHO Actinics on.

He sure is one of a kind for a clown trigger. My tangs keep him in check. Some bad news I just got back into town and my Queen was not doing well at all. Not sure what was wrong with him? He really was not eating very well since I got him. I thought he would overcome that...but no luck. His body had stiffened up and he could not swim anymore. I decided to put him down since he was suffering. He will be sadly missed.

I am sorry to here about your queen. That is my dream fish one day. I wonder if you got one as a juvy if it would help keep them long term.

I'm not sure but my source is very good for Angels as of late.


sean48183,

I was thinking the something. I have my eye on one at LFS that is maybe 2" max. He eats everything and has bee at the store for awhile.

Nice tank! How big is your Naso? He looks big. I can't wait to see the big Sohal; I would imagine it'll be the new boss until the CT hits max size. I used to live by your area and if I still did I would have to check out your tank..nice.

Great tank high def

I am a newbie and I have a few questions for you. I want to be sure I understand how your tank is set-up, for my future tank project.

THe way I understand your set-up, for circulation your tank has 2 main feeds to move water. One is the return from your basement sump. The other is the closed loop, which takes water out of the tank via a bulkhead, then a pump returns that water back into your tank at a high velocity...there are no filters in this loop, just the pump.

For filtration you are using the "Berlin" method consisiting of about 1/3 of the tank filled with LR, and then you have a powerful skimmer in the basement sump.

Does this summarize your filtration and circulation?
Do you use any other filtration, like mechanical or wet/dry?

Thanks!

Titan*69,

Thanks........ The Naso is around 9". What part of the city did you live in?



angelfishlover,


The stuff sure has taken off.



Fizhstiks,


Thanks...... As of now they all get along just fine.



Apone,


I have 2 CL on the tank. One is with a OM 4-way ran by a Hammerhead pump. The second CL is a Gen-x 55Hp pump ran off penductors. I have a basement sump which I run a wet-dry and a massive skimmer, UV, Ozone etc. My return pump from the basement is a Gen-x pcx-40.

An update........


After a long wait to find the perfect Emp my search has ended. My LFS Jayson @ Saltwater Connection has found me a beautiful Emp angel. Here are a few pics of him. He also got some beautiful SPS corals in.

This is a really great tank.

I feel your tank is one of the best because it goes against the "traditional" methods.

1. You keep multiple large angels in the same tank
2. You keep a good amount of fish in your tank, not just a sparse population like many do.
3. You mix corals with lots of fish, including large angels with the corals, which is typically not done.
4. You dont use a DSB.
5. Lastly, you keep a wet/dry with corals!

I am really glad I found your post. I currently have a well stocked, fish only tank, witha wet/dry myself. Eventually I would like to keep a few corals as well, but everything I have read has always summarized keeping corals by saying: no large angels, no large fish load, and definately no wet/dry.

Your tank is the first I have seen that combines different styles...good job!

Do any of the angels pick on the corals? Also, can you tell me what type of corals those are?
