  10. Paratore's 75 Gallon Display

    Thanks for the kind words! Definitely don’t like where it is haha. But in the returns defense I drilled with the wrong drill bit so its 1” instead of 3/4” and it’s impossible to find 1” lock line. So for now I have a 90* elbow on it pushing all my flow straight down the back. It works out because it keeps junk from building up but it’s a pain. Doing it again, I would put it on the back in one of the corners so you can shoot water all the way across. Sent while trying to get my next coral fix.....
  11. Paratore's 75 Gallon Display

    Well its been over two years since I've had a true display! I'm beyond excited to say the least [emoji4] I moved into a house with three of my closest friends and they wanted a fish tank. Being the stand up guy I am, how could I deny them!?! So I picked up a 75 gallon from Greg and thus the build was born. The plan is to create a beautiful mixed reef with minimal maintenance (everyone has this goal haha). My goal with this thread is to document the equipment used so others may steal my ideas, and to see how my tank progresses [emoji4] I have spent the last few weeks planning out equipment and livestock. As of now, I only have the tank and some 2x4s! But I just placed an order for a bunch of stuff today. Three boxes totaling 100lb will be here on Thursday! Still need to place at least one two more orders to get all my stuff. For this build, I want everything to work good and to have zero issues [emoji4] Also I never buy myself new equipment so I'm treating myself a little. Here is what I've got planned for this build. Equipment: Lighting: Going with a T5/LED Hybrid. Either the AquaticLife hybrid fixture with two AI HD Primes or something similar. BRS put a video out about this setup and it would meet my needs/desire for the tank. Flow: Two MP-10QD (already have, just need to order new drivers since mine aren't working properly) OR one Gyre 230 if the MP-10s don't give me enough flow Skimmer: Simplicity 240 DC Protein Skimmer Return Pump: Simplicity DC 1000 Pump Overflow: Synergy Reef Shadow Overflow Rock: 70lb Tonga Branch (going for the floating overhang) Filtration: Pond Matrix and MarinePure block ATO: I'm still deciding but I'm leaning toward the new Apex ATK ATO or Tunze Osmolator 3155 Sump: Trigger Emerald 34 Heater: 200w Eheim Jager Stand: Custom made by yours truly [emoji4] Livestock: Fish: (Going for the Skittles look with lots of movement) Clownfish pair Blue Spot Jawfish Orchid Dottyback McCoskeri Flasher Male Brunneus Fairy Wrasse Male Lineatus Wrasse Male Ornate Leopard Wrasse Female Very small Purple Tang Flameback angel Midas blenny This fish list isn't final, just my thoughts thus far. I'm definitely open to other fish and ideas [emoji4] Inverts: 2-4 Cleaner shrimp 2 Blood shrimp Starfish eventually Urchin? Corals: Lots of Zoas and LPS with a few SPS. I'll list them all out as I add them to the tank. Here is how the tank sits right now. Wait....that wall doesn’t have a power outlet..... Up next: fix the no power issue!

  19. Paratore's 75 Gallon Display

    Those are actually both different strains of Rose bubbles! One is just way darker than the other. The sunbursts sadly didn’t make it :/ they got out of their basket, got a little torn up and I think a bacterial infection did them in. I tried to get meds and set up a hospital tank but wasn’t fast enough. Was a sad day around here, that’s for sure. Once the display is ready I will try to get another one.

    And for some corals, check out these nems that are going in there [emoji7][emoji7]always had a love for nems so I’ll be placing multiple kinds/colors in this tank. Sent while trying to get my next coral fix.....
  21. Paratore's 75 Gallon Display

    Thanks! But it’s actually just star polyp, I’ve got both a blue and green strain! Mixed them together so in a few months it should be a nice solid multicolor mat. At least that’s the goal lol Sent while trying to get my next coral fix.....
