You asked for an inside tour of my 90G reef tank and here it is! In this episode of Mr. Saltwater Tank TV, I show you the ins and outs of the equipment side of my 90 gallon reef tank. It takes a lot of equipment running in unison to have a great reef tank and I show you what equipment I'm running and why I chose what I did.

I know this video is old but you said in your flashback. You made the mistake on your first/second tanks of adding "real" love reef rock. Why is thst a mistake? Don't you want all the critters from the ocean in your tank, bristle worms and such To move around your sand bed
Mr. Saltwater Tank TV
Mr. Saltwater Tank TV - 3 years ago
You'll want some critters, but not others. And when you use rock from the ocean, you don't get to choose. I use dry rock now and select which critters I want in the tank and add only those

your idea of a big sump is 15g? i have a 65g sump on my 90...
baseballhunter42
baseballhunter42 - 5 years ago
+J S But there are upsides to a larger sump. I agree 15 is too small, but also think 65 on a 90 is excessive. A 20 or preferably a 30 would be a better choice. Comfortable room for all equipment, room to add a refugium, and as a general rule; more water volume = more stable parameters. So it's always helpful to go as big as possible.
J S
J S - 5 years ago
It's not a "must" to go bigger.... You may as well have a sump that is bigger than the whole tank... It just goes around in circles
J S

As are there no downsides to have the "recommended" sizes
Michael Banich

+J S I have never heard any successful aquarist say that. I've always heard bigger = better. There are no down sides to having a big refugium and sump.

Totally unnecessary and overdoing it... Can't hurt but a waste of money and efforts....

Yellow tangs are one of only a few tangs that can thrive in less than 6 feet of tank length. They're not as demanding as alot of others with swim space like the hippo... DO YOUR RESEARCH!

You can always go the fish only live rock route, u can use a simple canister for just fish without corals and inverts. Just keep up on water changes and over filter the heck out of it with more than half the amount of gallons in pounds of live rock.

Hey do you think I could put a green mandarin goby in a 90 gallon tank with a yellow tang and a yellow kole tang? Also, do you think he would get enough to eat with a melanarus wrasse in the tank due to the fact that it also picks for food among the rocks. Thanks in advance
Mr. Saltwater Tank TV
Mr. Saltwater Tank TV - 6 years ago
you are correct James in that if the return pump isn't flowing, then there won't be water coming down the overflow pipe
James Upton
James Upton - 6 years ago
if the return pump fails in the sump am I right in thinking that because you run a tank overflow filter that the sump wont overflow as there will be no water to trickle in to the overflow pipe going down in to your cabinet or do you use some other safety mechanism?

What is your opinion on an Eco pico
Mr. Saltwater Tank TV
Mr. Saltwater Tank TV - 7 years ago
a lot of the cooling capacity of cooling fans depends on the air temp and the airflow in the room. My 90g tank was in the same room as the return air for the AC so I had a lot of air flow through the room, which helped take away the hot moist air.
john briones

im shocked mark that you have 2 250w MH running in the system with a closed canopy on it and you have no chiller yet your system stays below 80degrees that seems almost impossible ,lol i have a 48 inch fixture and 2 150w mh with 4 t5s on it and my system is rimless and i can not keep the temp under 79 without a chiller

Hey mark, i'm really confused about sumps. Firstly, on what part of the sump do you dose the magnesium/calc./alkalinity in? Also, what does does alkalinity do? Lastly, what in your tank gets rid of ammonia? all you have is a skimmer and refugium. Don't you have a canister filter or a place for bioballs/biological media? Or is that much stuff in your sump enough? please reply asap! i want to get my first ever 60 gallon tank set up.

@70gallonfishtank the front of the canopy has a door that opens so I can feed the fish, etc.

@moneymarkj yeppers. The fixture on top of the canopy helps a lot with heat dispersal as well

@MrHomeSkilet saltwater is way easier than freshwater that's for sure!

@SoSpiky Nope, no strontium. Coraline growth is a function of good water parameters - Alk/Ca/Mg. Adding strontium won't have an effect on coraline growth.

@Adam141516 Depends on how much you have to spend and how size tank you are going to start with. That's where you need to start. Keep in mind bigger is better.

@gmoney1961 The canopy sits on top of the tank and the fixture then sits on top of the canopy.

Love your canopy design....any video of how it's put together? Doe it sit on legs or directly on top of the canopy?

Love the video, very informative. I do have a question, where did you get the dosing tube holder from? I cant' seem to find them.

@KimLegend93 I prefer a wet skimmate as when I run a dry skimmate, I've found too much solid particles get stuck in the neck of the skimmer. When this happens, the skimmer loses efficiency so it isn't taking out as much junk as it should. A wetter skimmate leaves more of the solids in the collection cup.

@zacguitarshreder12 I will once we move. The tank is actually the perfect size for the room its in. Any bigger and it'd over power the room. Part of our next home search will be that there has to be a wall that backs up to the garage so that I can put the sump and all equipment out there, leaving only the display tank in the house.

I see all those bottles under your tank next to your sump, what are they, and what all do you dose in your tank, also what test kit do you use, and what do you test for?

@mrsaltwatertank Hey mark, do you still see a nice grow with the 20ks. I need too change my bulbs next month; tired of my 10ks..lol
Mr. Saltwater Tank TV
Mr. Saltwater Tank TV - 9 years ago
@njoyrid he's right, the new K's are better for not knocking with wavemakers like the old ones.

@vdre3 If you are using Koralias; make sure its the Evolution because, the older ones, you cant put them with wavemakers of any kind. If you are a reef junkie, go get the mp60w or mp40w from vortech, they are awesome
