Mesamech 65gal Tank


Recommended Posts

After collecting pieces and parts for the last two months, I think I'm ready to start building my tank.  I picked up a 65 gallon tall that is predrilled at the bottom so I'm going that route with drains. I just received my new sump that's a 20 inch cube and since the cabinet on my stand is only 18" wide, I have some modifications to do.

I think a mixed reef, my wife likes the movement of softies in  the current, I like the sticks.  I had T5's on my previous tanks with pretty good success. Right now I have a Chinese black box LED 😕 that I want to upgrade. I'm looking at AI hybrids down the road a bit before the SPS.

Im using a 300w viparspectra light frm amazon currently set at 75% on the blue channel and 55% on the white channel. I started out at 40% evenly and have been slowly creeping it up over the past 5 months. And ya ive totally over stocked it with the lil acros in this closed system, gotta have somethin to suck up those nitrates lol.

Ooh yeah, looking great! Is that an Apex module i see in the sump? Also, did you use some bacteria seed or just the live rock to help cycle your tank.

Yes it is an Apex, my 1st controller in a tank, I love it.
