January '99 - Brian's 450 liter Reef Tank.

After a long series of freshwater tanks, I thought it was time to portray a marine aquarium again. This perfectly set up 120x60x60 cm3 Reef Tank belongs to american hobbyist Brian Pickavance, and should be a source of inspiration for anyone getting ready to dive into reefkeeping. The setup is about 18 months old. It includes 2 175W 10K Metal Halide Lights, 2 40W Actinic Lights, a 110 liter DIY sump, a 145 cm tall DIY Venturi CC skimmer powered by an Iwaki MD 40rlxt, an Iwaki MD30rlxt for circulation, and 4 powerheads on separate timers. Livestock includes 25 species of Corals, 7 species of Invertebrates and 10 species of Fish, all of which are photographed and displayed on his great website: Minnesota Reef. A must see!

If you'd like to submit an aquarium for Tank of the Month, just contact me.
