    Gimmito 450 gal L-shaped display

    Evening all,

    I'm in the midst of setting up a 450 L-shape tank (6' x 4' x 32"). It's made of 1" acrylic in the front and right side & 3/4" on left side and back. It has a 2" tubular steel around the perimeter that is powder coated. Gen of KritterTanks built it and did a great job !

    Here are some of the equipment I'm thinking of using:

    Lights-400 watt coralvue dimmable ballast w/lumenbright reflectors.

    Protein Skimmer-Reeflo Prokit , Royal Exclusiv Alpha 300, or the H&S 250 in sump model (to save some space).

    Calcium Reactor-Deltec PF601S (keeping mostly sps w/some lps).

    Denitrator-H&S 150SR (I do like fish and would like to keep some shoals of anthias, but would like to keep nutrients down).

    Return Pumps- 2 Reeflow Dart Golds (I'm thinking of using a Oceans Motions or manifold).

    Contoller-Reefkeeper Elite or New Apex Aquacontroller.

    Water Movement-An array of Vortech Pumps and Tunze Streams.

    Sump-100 gal Eco system sump (I don't know if I'm going to actually use miracle mud)

    Refugium-I would like to employ a gravity fed fuge on the upper left part of the tank.

    That's all for now...I would appreciate your inputs !!

    Jim
