    Been a while

    It's been quite some time since I posted last. Still have my setup as fish only. But I am converting the spare 90 to a mixed reef. If anyone has any lps they want to trade or donate let me know. Here are some pics of the filtration system. The 90 I am converting is the tank on the left.

    Looks like a real nice set up. What kind of fish are you keeping?

    I have a hsa 3000 skimmer on my 400 gallon aggressive tank 600 gallon system and it's the best skimmer I have ever seen. It takes a monster pump to run it but it pulls out like no other skimmer I have ever had. I could not imagine much 2 towers would pull. Looks like a huge filter room for a 90 gallon tank. I guess your planning for a bigger tank?

    @Jim: Mostly Angels. Emperor, Queen, Majestic, and Anngularis. There's a huge Orange spot Rabbitfish, couple Anthias, couple Gobies, and a cleaner Wrasse. I'm looking for a Blue Face Angel if anyone has one and the Rabbitfish is getting to big for the tank if anyone is looking for a good algae eater he will be up for sale or trade when I catch him. He's a good 8 or 10 inches long.

    @Josh: Yes I really like my skimmer, it's a beast! I still have my 180 display tank upstairs in the living room. I'm sure you remember my reef! Do you still have any of that Staghorn you got from me? I wouldn't mind getting a piece of that back.

    Looks like quite the set up! Yes, indeed, a Blue Face Angel would be a great addition!
