  1. Hey everyone, As the title says, I'm new to the Pacific Northwest. I had a 180g while I was back on the east coast that I had to break down and part out to move here. Now that I'm settled in, I want to build the first of my 2 dream tanks. The tank will be a 48x30x20(LxWxH) mixed reef. I'm currently seeking quotes for the tank from miracles, and reef savvy, but I'm wondering if there are any top notch builders here in Washington. I'm also looking for the best local fish stores in and around Redmond, WA. I'm willing to travel for great service and livestock. I hope to get to a couple the monthly meetings here shortly. Happy Reefing. -dlp Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk

    My 80gal Tank

    You basically have two options. A Durso or a Herbie. I strongly suggest that you go with TheClark's suggestion of running a Herbie and then run the return over the back of the tank or drill a whole in the back pane. This will give you a silent overflow with a single emergency drain. If you went with the Durso, you could still get a silent overflow, but there would be no emergency drain which is not something that I personally would run.

    Rodi system

    http://www.bulkreefsupply.com/brs-6-stage-drinking-reef-ro-di-system-75gpd.html That's for the drinking water and reef model. I personally have a 150GPD value plus system. I don't ever make that much, but it cuts down on the waste water. You need 50psi for the 75gpd systems and 65psi for the 150gpd systems. My unit came with a pressure gauge and digital TDS meter which helps me know when I need to change filters or media. I also let me know that my house had low water pressure so I bought a booster pump as well. Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk

    Nice diving video

    Is that a cinnamon or a tomato clownfish? Either way, it is beautiful, I heard they are aggressive though. Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk
  5. Thanks, I will check out barrier reef this weekend! I'm definitely looking for glass. Does anyone know if Crystal Reef Aquatics is a good store? It looks like they do custom builds and the tanks on the sight look decent. Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk
