Default 150 Gallon office setup

Here's a couple current videos of this tank. First one is on the fish




Second video is a peek at the nuts and bolts about the tank. Sump, stand, etc





Thanks for looking!

Nice set up! Those Petros are "giiinormous" compared to the Trophs. Didn't realize they get that large..

lol - same here, but they're nice enough to give me a generously sized private office as well. Setup was completely on the company expense account, minus the fish

Thanks! It's about the simplest filtration out there. Filter socks, some matalla mats and a crapload of submerged media...far more than any canister could dream of holding.

I have no idea what that overflow is rated for. It came with the tank via craigslist. It's the first time I have used one of those CPR boxes and I have to say it's quite nice. Much quieter than other HOB overflows available, although who knows what'll happen to my opinion of it if that stupid aqualifter pump fails or whatever. It has 2 1" bulkheads, so I'd imagine it's rated for around 1200 gph.

The return pump is some quiet one knock off from kens fish that has really impressed me. It pumps about 1350 gph before head loss, pulls half the wattage of my mag 12, its very quiet, and I think I paid about 60 bucks for it lol

What's the name brand for the pump?

Tank looks great and I'm still deciding between the CPR and Eshopps. The aqualifter is a good idea but useless if it fails for sure. You ever get longola fry?

It's called a "deep blue pro titan". Nice little unit so far.

If I were to buy an overflow unit I would go with the eshopps. Although it is MUCH louder, I've been able to make them pretty much fail-safe with power outages and all that. Maybe once I get more comfortable with the CPR my tune will change because in all reality, it is a much nicer unit in both quality and sound level. None of my tanks at home are glass, so it's not a problem I have to deal with except here at work. I was just unable to find a 6' acrylic tank that was both large enough and in decent enough condition to buy on craigslist at the time, so I settled for glass.

I do get fry. My list is pretty long and moves pretty slowly as I don't strip any of my fish. I only sell what I can catch out of my tank lol. They'll go through spurts where I'll get a ton of spawns and successful brooding periods, then go dry for months at a time, although they tend to spawn almost constantly
