very nice tank! I think that SPS is an orange digitata.
That is a really nice tank. Can you tells us more about your set-up etc?

well its a 58g, 400w SE 20k XM in a custom luminarc style reflecor, Filtration is a custom made sump with a 12g fuge and a custom skimmer. About 80+lbs of rock in the tank, another 40 in the fuge along with some cheato. What else you want to know?
04-02-2007, 6:40 PM
how but some pics of your sump and skimmer....we like pics :)

here is an old one from when i had the DSB in a bucket going(its gone now)
Yeah, now that you asked....
You mentioned custom luminarc reflector. Did you make that yourself? Pix?
Whats the large PVC tube in your sump on the left front corner?
Will you come arrange my 58 so it will look as good as yours? :lol2:

yup actually a friend of mine made it, only thing you must have is a break and some rivets. Other then that its not that hard to do.
The PVC is a carbon/phosphate reactor I made. Which actually doesnt work to well so I took it out to redesign it and and decided its only $5 more to just buy a premade one.
and yes Ill come rearrange your tank, I just redid a 92 corner for a client...but it will cost ya:D
I also feel a need to mention that that home depot check valve has been on there for years and needs to be replaced since it doesnt do squat. If your gonna get one get a good one. If my return wasnt as high as it is I would be screwed.
That reflector looks good. I was thinking about the luminarc for my 250 lamp but the size would interfer with the T5. I would say don't waste money on a cheap check value.

Yeah it works pretty well. I was thinking of elongating it and mounting my PC's inside of it, but it would hit my fans so ill just leave it.
04-04-2007, 10:53 PM
what is that stuff you mount your frags to
it looks like some kind of clay
04-05-2007, 10:05 PM
I would guess 2 part epoxy. Reef safe variety.

Very nice tank.Love the micro colonies and the red yuma mushrooms.

Absolutely beautiful... Everybody looks very happy. I would say Digitata also next to the Monti Cap if that's the one you were trying to identify...
04-06-2007, 9:50 AM
yeah its the two part epoxy
and i know the montie's and the slimer(big one) i just dont know any of the rest of em
04-06-2007, 9:51 AM
oh and those are actually orange bullseye mushrooms, way cheaper and more tollerant then yuma's
