Welcome to my Website that I set up to document my 180 gallon reef tank. The tank was setup in April 2001, after months of reading and planning and then more reading. The tank was finally filled with water and salt added on April 14, 2001. My live rock arrived and was added on April 20th, 2001. The tank is setup using a deep sand bed (DSB) of about 4" and Live Rock as the primary filtering system. So click on any of the links on the left to find out how everything works or view pictures of the tank and inhabitants. If you see any errors please let me know. This site is always a work in progress and I intend to add more content as time goes on. Thanks for stopping by.

A lot of activity has been going on lately. I am finally setting up my new tank. The tank will be 270 US gallons. The dimensions are 72"x36"x24". I will update this site soon with the new tank data. But first, I am going to archive the 180 gallon tank information so it is still available. The main site will just cover the 270 gallon tank with links to the old tank. But that will not be done until the new tank is fully up and running.

In the meantime if you want to follow the progression of the new tank setup please visit Reef Central. I moderate the SPS forums there under the signon name of JB NY. To view my thread on the new tank please click the link below.
