Tims new 6x3x2 reef, Full Riff system, Cellar Filter.

Hi Guys,

After two years out im back with the new aquarium, my wife gave me a green light for a small tank as our new born daughter seems to like fish, so without much consultation i ordered the tank 6x3x2, the largest aquarium i have owned, last one was 5x2x30.

And got to work building the stand and cabinet.

I really like the look of the full riff system with backing plates so i decided to go for it, i have had so many tanks in the past with live rock i fancied a change.

Luckily we have a cellar, and i kept the sump from the last set up so it was not to hard to clean it all up and re pipe the new tank,

I have had all new equipment this time, as i sold all my previous equipment.

Light 8x80w ATI unit, with a mix of ATI tubes.
Aquaray Fuji Blue for evening,
A Bubble Magus nac 9 and used Deltec apf851 for skimming duties,
A Bubble Magus Calcium reactor run off of a Peri Pump,
2x Phos ban reactors for Phosphate and carbon use.
Circulation is taken care of by a MP40 and a Tunze 6125, plus the return pump a 11000lph maxi flo.
Ro man 150gpd unit and booster pump.

NOTE Riff System back plates are still being made, should be here in a few weeks,

Anyway PICS :

Just waiting on the back plates to come now, been waiting since christmas,

Also i added a ventilation system into the side of the hood that runs a duct down the side of the aquarium (hidden side) through the floor to the cellar with a fan sucking the hot air and moisture away, needed as i wanted to enclose the lower half of the ATI unit to stop light bouncing back up into the room.

Going to try 80% SPS and try and resist the usual LPS as i would like to maybe add a large angel at some point in the future, may be! i will soon give in when i see a nice LPS,

Fish wise i am going to again try and add very few for the first 6 months but my list so far is:

But these are just initial plans, i know some might not be a good match, just a "like list" and there are to many on it as well.

Gold Flake Angel
Majestic Angel
Empor Angel if i stick to SPS, i wont!

Tri colour Tang
Vampire Tang
Orange Shoulder Tang
May be a Sohal Tang

Magnificiant Rabbit Fish
Feminus Wrasse
Leopard Wrasse
Halichoeres wrasse
Red Tail Tarmin Wrasse
Yellow Tail Wrasse
New Guinea Wrasse
Cleaner Wrasse

Cross Hatch Trigger.

Shoal of Anthias 6-9.
