My main reef aquarium is a 240 Envision acylic's cube with the dimension 4'x4'x2'. It is set up as a peninsula so it can be viewed from 3 of the four sides. It is filtered by a 120 gallon sump with an ASM G4X protein skimmer. The 240 reef aquarium is on the same sump as four other aquariums for a total water volume of about 400 gallons. The other aquariums include a 30 gallon refugium, a 3o gallon cube, a 30 breeder and a 25 breeder. The three additional aquariums all house my breeding pairs of clownfish. The 240 reef aquarium is lit by a 400 watt metal halide with DIY custom LED moon lights.

The reef aquarium has been up and running for a little over 2 years. Most of the corals and fish were moved out of a 125 and 75 gallon reef aquariums that had been running for 5 years or so. The reef aquarium houses mainly LPS and soft corals with a couple of SPS corals. The fish includes a pair of maroon clownfish, a blue, yellow and kole tang, a pink tail trigger, a yellowtail damsel, a cleaner wrasse and a pajama cardinalfish.
