Aquarium Overview

90 Gallon


I am setting this tank up as an upgrade to my 28 gallon reef. I wanted a larger aquarium for stability. I don’t have the room (or money!) to go any bigger, so I am setting this tank up exactly how I want it based on what I have learned in my experience with the Nano. It will be a mixed reef tank

Please be sure to look at the blogs in the 90 gallon reef category for more details.

28 Gallon


This was my first saltwater tank. I initially planned on upgrading to the 90 and selling this tank. However, I have been talked into keeping this tank as it was in a prime location next to the dining table. It was setup with entirely hang on back equipment using T5 lighting.


I will fill this section out in the coming days


I have decided to turn this into a species only tank. Whether or not this includes coral will depend on which species we decide to go with. Currently, we are leaning toward a dwarf lionfish. Ideally, I would also upgrade the equipment for this tank, including adding a sump and potentially basic LEDs and a Vortech MP10w. This would add better water movement, filtration and avoid the cost of lightbulbs.
