Vinnie- I've pretty thoroughly covered many of the operating expenses and set-up expense in the other thread and briefly mentioned it in this one.

Thanks to everyone for nominating this tank. I really wanted things to grow in and mature before making it public. I also wanted the extra time to perfect the set-up so others could model it(if they want to) after it was thoroughly tested and proven. I took two years testing equipment and configuring it to the point that it is simple and proven. I also feel that the 140 gallon refugium could easily be taken off-line as far as filtration goes. The Volcano skimmer from Aquatic Acyrlics easily handles the demand of the tank. In fact after that skimmer was put online I slowly took off the UV and Ozone with no change to the tank.

Energy, can you describe what you use for flow in such a large tank (pump types, cl's, powerheads,etc)? I don't remember reading much about this in your threads, many thanks

oh, and if you did it over, what would you change?
