About our Reef Tank
My name is Devon and I live in Missoula, Montana. I’ve been keeping saltwater tanks for around 7 years. My better half, Shelby, has been there all along the way helping me attain my degree from Bend Over University.
Currently we have a 270 gallon reef display tank that’s been up for a little over 4 years. Under the display is a 40 gallon sump, 1/3 hp chiller, 2 – Mag Drive 24s (returns), Mag Drive 18 (refugium) and a Reef Octopus 6″ Recirculating Skimmer (DDNW-150-6530B), previously a Prizm Pro Skimmer. To the right of my display tank is a 90 gallon refugium with a deep sand bed. I grow a bunch of Chaetomorpha macro algae in the fuge for nutrient export.
For lighting I run a Current 3X150W MH w/ LEDS & 3 – 2′ 96W T5 Tek lights on the display & a 4′ 324W T5 Tek light on the refuge.
Hope you enjoy my blog posts (right column)!
